Close to NYC, efficient, not expensive and well maintained skiing resort. Very good destination for a weekend family skiing trip. There are lots of Black diamond trails; a few - Double Diamond ones (not really :-)), quality groomed, very well maintained snow. Kids and family friendly. Lots of parking space. Good eating choices. It's not something to spend a week... More

Friday to Saturday buddy ski trip. Having been mostly to the Pocono resorts and a few Vermont mountains, didn't know what to expect. It's exactly what it is... Between the two. Tickets are pricey for the size of the place. Nothing around the mountain to make it a return destination. The runs were well groomed. The six person chair was... More

Rented a nearby house with my extended family and had a great time! Great conditions, good lift ticket deals for the area and my wife and sister in law got good beginner packages to learn to ski! The only things I would complain about are that 1. there is only 1 real good long intermediate trail and our young kids... More

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
