4th of July Weekend in Hunter!!

Hello from Hunter Mountain!

We've been hard at work preparing for the installation of our new 6-pack lift... the quad is almost entirely removed from the hill. For updates and photos, be sure to check the Hunterblog! We'll have more photos as the installation progresses!

We'd also like to thank you all for so many great name submissions... if you've got a new idea or would like to send in your suggestion for the name of the new lift, send it now!

July is creeping up on us, and the weather has been incredible! We've got lots going on, the zipline has been PACKED and is now open daily! There are only a few spaces left for zipping this weekend... come on up and give it a try! Reservations can be made by calling (518) 263-4388 or e-mailing info@zipsny.com! Tour types and pricing are available here!

D-Lift is also serving as our Skyride lift, so for those of you who'd like to take a ride up the mountain and enjoy the scenery, a picnic at the wine rock, or a walk from Midstation, now's your chance! For more information on the Skyride, head over to HunterMtn.com! We'll have a band out on the deck from noon to 3pm on Saturday... bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the weather! Please remember to bring out what you brought in!

As for Fourth of July festivities, Bear Creek Restaurant, located on Rt. 214 in Hunter, will be having fireworks and a BBQ. Bear Creek also has miniature golf, a driving range, paintball, horseback riding and great food! They also have the biggest fireworks display in the area... spend your Saturday evening with beautiful views and great food, music & fireworks! The rain date for fireworks is Sunday evening.

There's an assortment of events taking place in the area, as well: looking for a movie, play, place to eat, bookstore, art gallery? We've got an all-in-one right in Hunter! Visit the Catskill Mountain Foundation bookstore, theater, cafe and/or art gallery! Visit CatskillMtn.org for more information!
