Hunter is a great place to ski if you live in the area or coming up from NYC or NJ. Conditions are great and the trails are well groomed and taken care of! Avoid weekends if you can, higher prices and longer wait lines but if you have to hit the slopes on the weekends it's not to bad! There... More

My family and I took a day trip to Hunter Mountain to try our hand at skiing. We purchased a beginners pack with lessons and equipment included. We took a bus leaving from LIC and we arrived rather quickly. Once arriving at the mountain everything fell into place. We checked in suited up, and moved on to our lessons. The... More

Our kid is just learning how to snowboard. Fantastic instructor in Rick Hoyt! Smart and thorough with the basics. Facility is well designed to accommodate patient parents, toddlers just learning how to manage a pair of skis or hot-doggers on the double diamonds. Food ok, but not outstanding. EMS/First Aid area seemed well managed. But, to charge $3.50 for bottled... More

I was lucky enough to catch the snow conditions just right for a trip to Hunter Mountain on Feb 19, 2015. I was in NYC on a family trip for a week. I had always wanted to ski in the east after skiing over 300 days in the west and Europe. I went online and found a bus day trip... More

Went up to Hunter to give skiing a try for the first time. Chose this particular mountain because it is relatively close to the city and transportation easily accessible. The first day I took a group lesson under the impression that "group" meant 5-10 people... in reality there were combined groups of 5-10 students each of varying athletic ability, resulting... More

My wife and I went to Hunter Mountain at the last minute to take advantage of an overnight snowfall and warm temps. She's a beginner and I'm more advanced, but no expert. The mountain is beautiful, the lift lines move fast, the slopes are challenging and fun and the people working the Learning area and the lifts were very professional... More

Came here with some trepidation but it was terrific. The rental place was very efficient. The slopes were great for kids

This resort offers a lot to anyone visiting. You can ski, snowboard, cross country ski with great conditions. Other seasons offer festivals, music and the great zipline. A professionally managed resort with many options to keep you intrigued.

If you are a beginner they have a great lesson/ rental package/ half a mountain lift pass. Lines are long but go quickly. Longest line of your day will be the rental line. Get there early!

I went to Hunter Mountain Snow Tubing Park over the last weekend and we had a ball. My family came from Florida so they were all excited about tubing. The girl at the window was very nice she also made some great food recommendations as well. The lift attendants were all so great there were even some young people training... More
