The crowds were enormous, lines horrendous, and the people camping out for the day at tables made it impossible to relax anywhere. We are not skiers, but signed up for over $400 worth of lessons for three people. One of us had 2 lessons of which 1 class was so crowded he couldn't hear the instructor. Our lessons were just...

The lodge offered pretty depressing fare for lunch and an even less charming crowd. We visited over the New Year's Eve weekend and the crowds of people were quiet rude. Definitely not the civilized ski experience I had hoped for!

If it's dumping snow and you live in NYC and want just a day trip, then Hunter is probably your go-to spot. For advanced riders, it'll be your best call if all you can do is that day trip. They do have some quality advanced runs on the West Side, but the problem with this mountain is that it's almost... More

Just returned from 3 days of skiing in Hunter and it was amazing. The first day the mountain was well groomed and had a decent base of man made snow. Later that evening we got 15 inches of fresh powder dumped in the Catskills and it was beautiful. The mountain was crowded but the trails were in great conditions, the... More

My family has been skiing Hunter for years. Go when they have a dump, otherwise their conditions are icy. Ski Hunter West, for no lift lines. If you don't ski, go to drink. and eat, they always seem to have have a festival going on.

I was highly disappointment with how my first visit to Hunter Mountain turned out. My kids had private lessons (the instructions they had were great) and I had purchased a group lesson ticket for myself. Unfortuately, I was unable to use my group lesson/lift/rental ticket worth $79. After the kids lessons, they were exhausted/tired and hungry. I was unable to... More

Considering we've had warmer weather so far this ski/snowboarding season they've done well to have a few trails open. They were making snow like mad when I got there. Now I see they have 40+ trails open. Even when I went there were just enough open to have variety. Sure, a lot of the trail was ice but there were... More
