The snow we do have has been tons of fun! Check out our video filmed last week. We brought in a good friend to take a couple of runs and show you what the Hunter snowmaking team has been up to since we've opened. You might have seen her face around here and there...
Just a quick heads up that the 3X Card deadline to purchase online is coming up soon. You have until the 24th to grab one online. Also, the Consumer Demo Day is next week, on the 27th, and the New Year's Eve Fireworks and Torchlight Parade is on the 31st.
If you will be at Hunter Mountain this week make sure you check out the spa at the Kaatskill Mountain Club. This week only, get a free aroma therapy upgrade when you purchase a signature massage. It's a great way to unwind after a day on the hill. Book your appointment today!

Calling all adventurists, nature lovers, fun-seekers, heck, even those who like lounging around in luxury surroundings… mark September 15th and 16th in your calendar for an action-packed weekend.
POGO Events is teaming up with Hunter Mountain for a fun filled mountain adventure like no other. Think, the Sound of Music mashed up with The Amazing Race, with a dash of the Olympics thrown in for fun!
Just two and a half hours from New York City, nestled in the beautiful mountaintop region of the Northern Catskills, your weekend will include hiking, scavenging, climbing, puzzle solving, and family/friend bonding, with a dash of wining and dining thrown in for good measure. The package includes two nights’ accommodation, participation in the amazing race on Saturday, and even the option of a meal plan and transport, so all you need to worry about is getting your team together.
The three hour race on Saturday the 15th will take place along some of the many hiking trails surrounding Hunter Mountain, with breath-taking views of the Hudson Valley and the surrounding peaks. After ‘skyriding’ up to the 3,200 foot summit, you and your teammates will face physical challenges such as the vertical rope course with nine different obstacles and a 60 foot spiral tower top, fun diversions like disk golf, and mental challenges for those with sharper minds rather than brawny arms.
Whether or not your team is the winning one (prizes will include winter ski lift passes, a New York Amazing Race of your choice, and of course all-important gold medals!), you will be able to relax afterwards in the indoor/outdoor heated pool, steam room, sauna, hot tubs, or if you’re up for yet more adventure, have a go at the zipline, golf or fly fishing.
Price is $485 per couple (or $243 per person) which includes two nights’ accommodations in a Deluxe Studio for two people plus the Amazing New York Race on the Saturday. Add $70 for full breakfast at the hotel, a boxed lunch and a three-course dinner at VanWinkle’s Restaurant; or add $90 to upgrade to a Jacuzzi room that will fit 4 people.
Depending on numbers, POGO Events may charter a bus from NYC to Hunter Mountain. Please let us know if this is an option you would be interested in. There are regular buses going from Port Authority, or the very lovely drive is just over two hours from NYC.
Whether it’s a celebratory weekend like a birthday party, or just an excuse to get friends and family together, The Amazing Hunter Race is sure to be one to remember.

Hunter Mountain will be “going pink” for the week of February 27th through March 4th in an effort to support fundraising and awareness through the Shred the Love Campaign and Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC). Throughout the week, guests of Hunter Mountain will have the opportunity to add $1 or more to their lift ticket purchase, as well as purchase various B4BC merchandise. The proceeds will go to help fund breast cancer research, awareness and prevention. On March 3rd through 4th, B4BC’s Check One, Two® traveling outreach group will be on-site providing peer-to-peer breast health education and preventative information.
B4BC is a non-profit organization founded to advocate early detection and a healthy active lifestyle as the best means of breast cancer prevention. The Shred the Love Campaign, originated by B4BC seeks to unite the board sport community through this message. The campaign has doubled in size in its second year, and mountain resorts, campuses and community organizations across the country are hosting events and fundraising activities to help spread the message and raise funds to support the efforts in awareness and prevention of breast cancer.
“We here at Hunter really understand and support B4BC’s message of a healthy, active winter lifestyle,” explains Gerry Tschinkel, Hunter Mountain’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We are happy to show our support to such a great organization with a very important message, while encouraging people to ride.”
