Congrats to the Winner of The Catskill Weekend Getaway!

  |  December 28, 2015


Here we are again! It’s been almost four months since we chose our last contest winner! After over 3,000 contestants entered the running, the winner of The Catskill Weekend Getaway goes to Grahame, a business owner and a resident of Forte Green, Brooklyn. Grahame has never won anything before but he really struck big for his first winnings! He has a two-night stay at Deer Mountain Inn, the Catskills’ well-known upstate retreat, two free tickets to ski/snowboard down Hunter Mountain, whichever he prefers, and finally, a weekend-ending wine tasting for six at the beautiful Hudson-Chatham Winery. A perfectly timed getaway, for it is the Year of the Catskills.

Here’s a little background on our lucky winner. Grahame was born in Australia but has lived in America for over 10 years. He has two children and an “ancient pug.” Grahame owns his own rooftop gardening business called Plant Specialists so he’s no stranger to Mother Nature.  But this Catskill Weekend Getaway will submerge him in the great outdoors that we all know and love here at Upstater.

Congrats Grahame! Enjoy the Catskills!
