APRIL 16 - After receiving about 8" of wet snow on Sunday morning, the precip has been changing back and forth from sleet to rain to mixed every time you look out the window.

We ended the season after skiing and riding on Saturday, April 14th. Thanks to all of our loyal skiers and snowboarders who kept the faith in Hunter Mountain this season. It was a challenging year on many levels, but once the season finally kicked into gear in January, conditions were amazing right up until closing. Thank you all.

Mother nature has been good to us up here, with flurries almost every day and temperatures not exceeding the low 40's, with some additional snow showers in the forecast. We'll have plenty of freshly-groomed snow on Friday and Saturday, so stop by to hit the slopes!

Come ski on Easter, get a $25 voucher!

On Easter Sunday, a $25 voucher will be given with each full-price lift ticket purchased, good for lift tickets through December 24 of 2007. The weekend weather is going to be awesome, with frozen granular and hard packed. So hit Hunter Mountain on Sunday, and save on a future lift ticket!

Return of winter cancels Pondskimming!

As some of you may have noticed, it seems that winter has returned to Hunter for awhile. With nighttime lows between 15 and 20 for the next week, and daytime highs of around 30-35, the weekend is looking to be a real flashback.

That said, we have decided that there is no way we can safely hold Pondskimming with such low temperatures. There may be some festivities and giveaways, but Pondskimming is cancelled. Hopefully we'll see you guys this's going be a nice, nippy, snowy weekend!
