Finally....Hunt or Kill?
 
Of course, the season has to go this way -> a major dumpster midweek followed by rain by the weekend it seems. It would make an otherwise newly unemployed guy almost upset...'cept THIS time I'm not at work and hopefully will get to at least the Catskills for Wed/Thursday's dumping.

Anyone riding from NYC to Killington within the week? Right now my sights are set for Hunter but would be interested to know if anyone is hoofing to Killington from the NYC areas. Not really talking about ride sharin'...just pulsing the vibe.

Looking to possibly head out to Hunter on Sat or Sun this week with the gf. Not 100% sure though, going to keep my eye on weather.

Incidently, I normally try to hit Hunter up during the week to avoid the crowds. But, would Sunday be better than Saturday (crowd wise)? Or is it a shit-show regardless?

Skip hunter go straight to Windham and lap the G chair all day on Wing'n It and Why not all day. I only have weekends to shred otherwise I would be in route to Stratton right now or Windham for day trips. I had many a powder days at Windham mid week and absolutely loved it!!

Ha Ha
 
That video is pretty funny and actually does remind me to consider Windham, but I have an unused Hunter 3X and times are tight. Still the runs at Windham empty are worthwhile and I wonder how the roads up at Hunter will be. Guess that is the best of worries.

Yeah, semi-sh*t show any weekend but if you can stand it, stay around Hunter West for as long as it holds interest. Usually it's the lowest of crowds. Also, if you dont mind dealing with half of the mountain, stay on the top left lift or bottom right lift to avoid the most crowds.

I do agree regarding the 3X. I had a midweek season pass to Windham 2 seasons ago and was there on EVERY pow day, except for one day at Hunter where it snowed 5 feet in one week up in the Catskills and we had a $25 pass there. They opened up trails that hadn't been open in 20+ years, like the cliff drop in the video I attached from our time there. All in all Windham has a place in my heart, only because I got 40 midweek days in there.

Well that video sold it and yeah, I grew on Windham but found weekends a bit much. It is great when everything is open. Off to pack.:thumbsup:

Heading to Hunter on Sat or Sun to use up my triple pass. They also have their pond skim this weekend. I take that to mean Sunday will be the last day of the season. :thumbsdown:

I have one more on my Hunter triple pass too. But looking at their web cam, I have zero motivation to make the trip. If you go Sat, post a trip report. Might still go Sun.

LuckyRVA 03-21-2012 11:48 AM

I'm really not motivated to go either. But both me and my fiancee have a pass to use. More than likely we will go on Saturday. I'll update the thread when I get back.

Just saw Hunter's FB post saying they are closing after Sat and not opening for Sun.
