18" of snow & still coming down.... AM update

Two weeks ago the marketing team went on a limb and called this month the December to Remember at Hunter Mountain. Some at Hunter who are very superstitious showed some great reluctance..."why jinx it", they all said. Our snowmakers were running full steam ahead, guns were blazing, and we were covering and opening terrain like never before. The investment in 150 new snow guns was surely paying off and Hunter certainly delivered for our skiers and riders.

On December 26th, the marketing team again went out on that limb, which held strong, and said that we would get a massive pow dump throughout the night and into day on the 27th. The snow gods smiled at our positivity and gave Hunter exactly what we had asked for. Good morning everyone...and welcome to 18+ inches of fresh POW at Hunter Mountain and flurries coming all through the week. The slopes are in excellent shape and we're grooming some before we open...many will be left exactly like Mother Nature intended them to be...untouched and pristine...awaiting the first tracks of skiers and riders.

Coming up? We urge you to be careful...the main roads coming off the NY Thruway are cleared but the wind is blowing so you may encounter some areas that have become snow-covered. The county plow trucks are out and have also cleared most side roads...just in case you're needing to get to your share-house or area lodging.

This is not a sight to be missed! Whether you're coming up to shred some pow, bringing the kids up for a Learn-To-Ski/Snowboard program, taking the family snowtubing or just getting away for a winter weekend in the Catskills....a beautiful snow-covered town, just over 2 hours from NYC awaits you at Hunter Mountain.

Enjoy the snow...wherever you are!

Is 18" enough to open Westway or was it all blown into the woods?
