Has anyone been there recently? How bad is it?

Went last weekend. Not to bad saturday was pretty good considering the weather we've had and sunday got a little sketchy because all the snow froze and it became an Ice rink. But all in all not bad. Even used my new board and only ended up with cosetice type scrathes nothing that actually broke the surface HAHA.

Hunter is pretty consistent. They blow a ton of snow and beneath that snow is slippery cement also known as ice. The best conditions in my opinion occur when its been cold and they blow a ton of snow or get a big noreaster, then it warms up and the snow is soft.

I went last Friday and that was the case. I was sweating like crazy because it was 45 at the base but it had been in the teens Wed and Thurs so there was plenty of soft snow but of course you got some icy areas and Belt Parkway was like an ice luge barely covered with an inch of fake snow. Everywhere else was pretty decent.

Yeah, I went last Saturday, it was nice and soft, though really really warm.

But I'm going this Sunday and it calls for 9 degrees....

Sat Early

Figuring to trip up early before crowds and get west in. Seems like all lifts are running which is good news.

Mother Nature might help out... begin your snow prayers. Have a shot at something Wed/Thurs then again at the end of the weekend.

Yah, went up on Sat as well albeit a bit late for first chair. I stayed on West which was great, moguls as well and also heard Sunday was awesome as well.

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.
