This is a run we kept coming back to throughout last ski season, at least until they opened the Kachina Peak Lift, from which you can access the upper part of Hunziger. Hunziger bowl can be accessed by riding up lift 4, going to the...More

You are in the Wilderness here and it feels like it. The Bowl is steep and often deep in powder. For some reason this used to be graded as a Blue Run, but now it is rightfully recognized as Black. From the far edge of...More

My son and I must've run this run 10 times during our spring break trip. You have to ski UP to it (or take your skis off and walk a little bit) so that keeps the masses off of it. It is basically a steep...More

Getting to the Hunziger Bowl does take some effort. You can ski right to it if you are coming down from Kachina. If you are coming off Lift #4, it's going to require a little hike. It is possible to side step up the hill,...More

Getting to Hunziger requires a short hike, but it has improved since they changed the access point. It is now groomed periodically, so unlike years past, there are parts that are steep but not bumpy. If you are looking for ungroomed terrain, stay far to...More
