Powder Day- December 27th

Hey there skiers and riders.  We received 14" of fresh snow from the latest storm.  We currently have 41 trails and 8 lifts running.  Conditions were great today on this highly anticipated powder day. We also have our snowtubing park up and running and don't forget- Zipline is open year round. There is more snow in the forecast for Saturday.  Come on up to Hunter, we've got you covered!

Update From Hunter Mountain

I was looking at the extended forecast and it appears that some opportunities for snowmaking are coming up real soon. I assure you we are taking every opportunity we get and will crank out as much as we can in whatever window of snowmaking that we get.

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!

The Hunter Mountain Race Foundation will be holding thier Kiddie Karnival on December 27th in Colonel's Hall in the base lodge from 3:30-5:30pm with games and prizes. The 15th Annual Snowball will also take place on Saturday the 29th, from 7:00pm-12am at the Chateau Belleview in Tannersville. For tickets or for more info on these events click here.

Use Your Big Lift Card for Discounts on Already Reduced Ticket Prices During Opening Weekend

The Amazing Hunter Mountain Race

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.

To purchase your tickets please call the Kaatskill Mountain Club at Hunter Mountain at 800-775-4641.


DATE- September 15th & September 16th (Race taking place on Saturday the 15th, hotel check in Friday, September 14th at 4pm and check out Sunday the 16th at 11am)

RACE TIME- 2pm to 5pm on Saturday

PRICE- $485 (or $243 per person) + taxes and resort fees Includes 2 nights accommodations in a Deluxe studio for 2 people plus the Amazing New York Race
          • Add $70 for full breakfast at the hotel, a boxed lunch, and dinner at VanWinkle’s Restaurant- including choice of cup of soup or house salad, entrée (ribeye and porterhouse steaks not included), dessert, and coffee/tea
          • Add $90 for a Jacuzzi room that will fit 4 people

TEAMS- Teams of 2, 3 or 4 PRIZES Winter ski lift tickets, entry for your team into an Amazing New York Race of your choice, Amazing New York Race t-shirts, and gold medals

TRANSPORT - Depending on numbers, POGO Events may charter a bus from NYC to the Hunter Mountains. Please let us know if this is an option you would be interested in
          - There are several bus tour operators that bring regularly scheduled trips to Hunter, as well as Adirondack Trailways, which offers daily trips from Port Authority, NYC to Hunter.
          - Hunter Mountain is located just over 2 hours north of New York City in the northern Catskill Mountains of New York State. Whether you are coming from the north or the south, Hunter is a convenient half-hour ride from New York State Thruway exits 20 or 21.

Hunter Mountain Goes Pink in Support of the Shred the Love Campaign

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.”

Thursday's a Snow Day in Union Square, NYC!

New York Ski Areas Bring Snow to Union Square
Thursday, February 9, 2012

Residents of New York are invited to enjoy a winter wonderland and explore some of the exhilarating winter activities that New York State has to offer!

The Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA), Ski Areas of New York (SANY), and I Love New York are bringing in tons of snow to Union Square to remind New Yorkers that the mountains of New York are covered with fresh and man-made snow. This snow day, Thursday, February 9th, is being hosted to encourage New Yorkers to get out and enjoy the outdoors during the winter months.

New Yorkers are invited to come out and enjoy the snow and learn about New York State's winter destinations from downhill and cross-country skiing to snowmobiling, ziplining, snowshoeing and more.

ORDA will be trucking in and blowing tons of fresh snow, utilizing the latest snow-making technology to create this incredible winter wonderland. This Union Square event will feature:
• Burton Riglet Park, where children ages three to six can test ride snowboards and learn the basics of snowboarding; instructors will tow kids on snow features and around obstacles to introduce them to the fun of snowboarding.
• Fresh from receiving a bronze medal for his video part in Winter X Games Real Snow, professional snowboarder Pat Moore will be on-site to talk about snowboarding. Pat holds "Highest Air" honors in the quarterpipe at the Oakley Stylemasters in China, the Abominable Snow Jam and the U.S. Open. Flying in style won him "Best Trick" for a massive 20-foot McTwist at the Arctic Challenge.
• Red Bull’s street team will be giving away a pair of custom skis, movies, shirts, and more.
• Skiing and snowboarding experts from ORDA, I LOVE NY, SANY/I SKI NY, Hunter, Gore, Whiteface, Windham, Belleayre and Mountain Creek will be available to talk about the quality and technological advances of snowmaking, New York’s 50-plus ski destinations and New York’s winter activities across the state.

This Weekend at Hunter

Who's coming up to Hunter this weekend?? Not only are the conditions amazing but the weather is looking great as well! Tomorrow, Saturday the 7th, DJ Styles makes his debut at Hunter Mountain in the main lodge from 2-8 pm. We also have the band Steppin' Out from 4-7:30 pm, so after you enjoy your day with all that snow our snowmakers have given you, kick back in the main bar and enjoy the entertainment. Maybe if we rock the lodge hard enough it will wake up mother nature!
