HUNTER MOUNTAIN RESORT GUIDE
Hunter Mountain Resort Overview
Ski all day and be back in New York City for dinner. That's possible at Hunter Mountain, accessible with a 2.5 hour drive from Manhattan, on a good day. Hunter features a 1,600-foot vertical drop and offers a wide range of terrain, although the steepest runs, such as Westway and Annapurna — only open after sustained snowfall. Hunter might be the poster child for the statement "If you can ski the East, you can ski anywhere." Its variable weather patterns and conditions keep you on your toes, but its excellent teaching program can prepare you in spades.
Meanwhile, the Hunter-Tannersville area is an increasingly attractive place to visit, with new cuisine such as Prospect and Sal's Pizza and lodging such as Scribner's Catskill Lodge, opening each season. Hunter is on the Epic Pass, convenient for those in the New York area who also enjoy skiing out West and/or further North.
