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.
