The ride down the mountain is super special, amazing views of the surrounding mountains!!! Loved it! Make sure you walk... More

Hunter isboth a skiers mountain and a learner's mountain. The attention they pay to beginners is amazing - I've brought nieces, nephews, and granddaughter to the learn to ski program and the instructors are talented and caring. The mountain is in great shape and the grooming is a priority for the owners. Can't beat the lift system and the snow... More

Four of us went to Hunter Mountain yesterday to ride the chair lift to the top, which was a terrific and fun experience which I had first done 35 years ago. The weather was perfectly clear and the view from the top was breathtaking. We did not know that there would be a German Festival on and to get to... More

Just 2 hours north of NYC/Northern NJ, the Mountain features 250 acres of ski trails that can challenge the best skiers. The beginner's area is separated from the main slopes and has their own lifts and trails leaving the intermediate and expert slopes available for the... More

We enjoyed our summer afternoon on the mountain. The ride was enjoyable and the view at the top beautiful. There is hiking although we didn't hike. For the fee, you can ride as many times up and down that you want. Would recommend.

We enjoyed a beautiful, clear day to ride the 'scenic sky ride" up Hunter Mountain. We didn't have enough time to a hike, but did seend an hour at the top. Definitely take the short hike to see the Rip Van Winkle sculpture! We saw people zip lining across the valley, which looked really fun.

We happen to be staying in Tannersville when they had the ski lift (aka Sky Ride) open for the weekend. We enjoyed a beautiful, quiet ride up the mountain for $12 each (worth it and yes the ride down is included). Once at the top we hiked a bit toward the fire tower although the trail does get very steep... More
