Kinda bummed on Sat as some kid got broke off trying to hit powder on a closed trail and did something bad. His body wasnt moving for at least 4 lift rides until ski patrol took him. Made me think twice about riding tired and I got out of there early. Likely gonna hit it again on Sat. So far, very pleased with Hunter this year.
wow dude are you serious? you saw him like 4 lift rides, that's like 1+ hours!! wow where was he exactly? and how come nobody reported this for all that time

Yah - keep in mind I ride West (minimal lift lines) and I ride fast so more like 40 mins. He was also on a closed trail...

First chair: guy down and friend calling to chairlift to get help; Second Chair: Guy still down, no help yet, ski patrol mobilizing; Third chair: First ski patrol person trying to assess the situation; guy still down and barely moving but thought he could speak; other ski patrol on the way; Fourth Chair: full team of ski patrol huddled around the guy, maybe 8 of them, equipped with an sled that had a big yellow airbag attached to it. I thought they would heli-lift him from there but by the 5th chair they were gone. Not sure how they got him out. I was hoping he just had a concussion or something but not paralyzed. I saw more of that scene than I wanted to and funny thing was I was about to try that closed trail myself right before this happened.

Of course, once they left, one or two more folks tried it...

i don't usually ride on the west since that's a beginner's place, I did my fair share last year but this next week let me see what you're talking about...

Yep, I was going to say the same thing - unless he's Travis, Nicco or Gigi and then I'd shut up.

The kid fell on Westway, which has been mostly closed all season. Definitely "go west" if you're looking for less crowds.

right right hunter one, these names... west is all about the diamonds, i don't remember ever being there i am usually go all the way up and choose the belt parkway, or sometimes thru the park the longest way down but will push it to west this weekend.
they usually close trails if there aren't enough snow on the ground or when it's too icey i think

Definitely check it out, well worth it for the technical experience but make sure your edges are as sharp if possible as there can be icy spots. I think it is the least crowded spot on the mountain and coupled to short lift lines that alone can be a good thing. Let us know what you think.

Hunter West is the place to be.

No crowds, no beginners, high speed lift.

Around noontime when everyone goes get lunch, I'll go back to the main part of Hunter, but Hunter West is the place to be when its crowded.

I'll do Hunter One to practice switch and not look stupid since no one else there can snowboard yet.
