soooo I was at hunter yesterday with 2 friends. It was fun I guess. There were many icy spots to be honest but if you know your way around them, then they create no problem.

As far as the quality of the snow: because of the weather beeing around 40 degrees yesterday, it was kinda mushy. It was definitely not watery tho. Being mushy kinda made it easier to snowboard imo. It's at least better than packed icy conditions.

We pretty much did every trail, from blue runs to double diamonds, and it didn't give us any hard time. We go to hunter often and it's mostly icy so it's not fun most of the time. This time tho, it was fun for us.. Like the others said, there were some deathtraps like bumps but it just made it more challenging and fun for me.

I agree it was a pretty good day at Hunter yesterday. The conditions were less than ideal for boarding but the temperatures made for a good day to be on the snow. The line for the Flyer was as expected (Looked like about a 20 minute wait to me) so me and my buddy took all the other routes, going from D lift to F to west side. I was just happy to finally be able to take my Proto out again without being worried about splitting the board on rocks.

I was going to hit up hunter but decided to do camelback instead as I had to make it to a concert last night in the city and camelback is a much quicker trip for me. It was like a spring day of riding with less snow and not as many trails open.

I got up there and on the snow early and it was pretty nice though a few sketchy spots in the shade. As the day wore on it softened up but wasn't terrible.. was very happy I waxed Friday night. Started to get a bit too mashy for me around 1 and I had been lapping without much of a break, so I took that as my cue to leave. Was a fun morning/early afternoon into a great night in NYC... So all in all a good day though it sure as hell didn't feel like January!!

Yeah Saturday at hunter was pretty much as stated above.. I used my new board and had no trouble got a few scratches but nothing bad. Today it was an ice cube I guess everything froze last night. Not a big deal to me loved being on the new board. My gf fell on some ice pretty hard so we left early but overall great weekend considering what the weather has been like. Hunter is really doing great stuff with what they got.

I was at Camelback Saturday and saw some kid dangling on the Sullivan chair lift for what seemed like forever. The crew tried to reverse the lift but it was slow moving. He couldn't hold on and fell.

When we got on the lift to go up, we saw he landed onto the Honeymoon trail and appeared unconscious. Crazy sight.

I takes a real idiot to fall off any of the lifts there, fooling around would be a cause of that

Is that why I saw a helicopter landed next to one of CBK's parking lot when I left around 1:30PM or so on Saturday. I was wondering what happened. Hope everything is ok.

Holy crap!!! The same thing happened to me last year at Hunter. I went right off the trail on the Belt Parkway and slammed right into that fence. Man that hurt for a few weeks and got me wondering if I should give this sport up. Luckily your buddy was ok.
