Hunter/Camelback/Creek conditions?

I tried to do a search of any recent condition reports without avail, so I'm wondering if anyone have first-hand knowledge of what the surface is like in the northeast, particularly Hunter, Camelback and Mountain Creek.

I've kept track of the weather and I'm not sure exactly how much rain these places had since weather.com, accuweather and wunderground all had conflicting reports.

Thanks in advance!

Was at Mountain creek last night, conditions were slushy with areas of diminishing coverage. Still had a good time riding.

Will be at Windham tomorrow, so I'll post about the Catskills conditions tomorrow

Awesome! Slush beats ice ANY DAY. I'm doing the opposite actually- Headed to Hunter tomorrow and Camelback on Saturday. Weather reports said that it rained more in the north than the southern resorts.

Anyway, I appreciate the reply. Have fun tomorrow, and I'll let you know how Hunter goes.

I rather ride in ice than slush. Slush is slow, bumpy/choppy and tires me out.
Ice is fast and smooth, and I have no problems maintaining an edge.

Depends on how much ice, I ride at night a lot - an icy spot here and there sure. but when the whole mountains "glass" that get's old quick.

I was at Camelback last Sunday, it was pretty icy on the busier runs but still fun. Let me know how it is Saturday. This week has been so warm I can't imagine the conditions will be that good.
