Hunter Mountain is great for skiing in the winter, and for zip lining, and festivals in the off season. The ski trails range from nice long easy slopes to really challenging ones. The lodge has food, a bar, and nice bathrooms (for a lodge). The view from the top (in any season) is beautiful.

Upon arrival, we followed the signs for the sky ride tickets , when we approached the stairs to go upstairs to purchase our tickets, a very rude woman with a " security" shirt on asked... More

Is the German Alps Festival is an annual event for everyone? Ja. I saw all ages showing their national pride. A couple of octogenarians, who were no doubt, reminiscing, about their homeland, were called out by the MC showing they were still having fun at 80 and 83! A young gal of 8 in a pretty German dress, dancing to... More

We were with a two day bus tour to attend the Alps Fest, the beer garden, food and entertainment were very good and we enjoyed ourselves. The facilities at Hunter Mountain were very nice. However, we were very disappointed with the size of the festival, we thought for sure it would be bigger than it was and we also were... More

A must do for all, a total professional operation. Although I did the Sky rider tour (the highest and fastest zip line) there are other tours for children. Don't deny yourself this chance, it was awesome.

We took a ride up the mountain and walked down the flowery hiking trails. The view is outstanding. It was such a nice day that we saw 3 different mountain ranges from the summit!
