I was at Hunter yesterday. Pleasantly surprised! It's really incredible how much snow they're able to make. Standing at the top of the mountain, you look around and there is no snow anywhere other than a light dusting at the very top of the surrounding peaks. But the majority of Hunter's trails are covered with snow, and the snow isn't shallow, either.
Of course, you're gonna get your icy spots. That happens even if there is real snow. But overall, Hunter had a good amount of rideable terrain and the snow quality was much better than I expected.
