Due to the unseasonably warm weather, we've chosen to spend a few extra days (i.e., this weekend) making snow, spreading out and developing a base, and plan to open Thursday or Friday of next week. In the grand scheme of things, it seems wiser to us to use this weather to the best of our ability -- and that, for Hunter, is using it for snowmaking, grooming, and to give our customers deeper base and more terrain.
The entire Northeast is struggling with a slow start to winter, but we are not at all dissuaded; we plan to ramp up our world-class snowmaking tonight and have some great, white terrain open for you all midweek and into next weekend... so instead of streaming down HBK alone, keep an open mind and hope for good weather... there may be more terrain to choose from!
Snowmaking starts up again tonight... even after Wednesday's torrential downpour, we've got initial snow left! Forecasts still assure us that a fantastic winter is on its way... it's just a bit late! Stay positive, and stay tuned... Hunter's putting all its power and prowess into some serious snowmaking while temperatures allow, and you all know the wait will be worth it!!
