    I'd be very excited as well. Never skied Hunter, but with it's reputation for crowds it sounds like they could use the additional acreage.

    The other way to look at it is maybe added intermediate terrain will translate to less grooming on Hunter's expert terrain. There have been frequent comments on AZ that Peaks has groomed too much at Hunter since taking over. Hopefully this changes that some.

    I was expecting the top terminal to be down hill from 6 Pack and F Quad but still along the ridge line, in the area where Hellgate, The Cliffs, Jimmie, Belt and Whitecloud all split off. There is obviously intermediate terrain from the area with Belt and White cloud. But I can see the issue with too many people in that area and on those intermediate trails and the desire to have them all downhill from the summit and the existing trails. Pretty much a completely segregated area.

    There's still 1,000 vertical feet. But it looks like it will be steepish intermediate terrain.

    The real question will be, how late will the new are be open? With a parking lot, they'll have to keep access available.

    True...




    I like this.. It will finally shut the intermediates up and start to turn the reputation around. They finally have a place of their own on Hunter.... Somehow I still think they'll complain..

    I broadens the ski area as far as it's entrances in parking lots. More traffic going west to the new entrance. Potential business opportunities in the mixed use/gateway area. WITH views of ski terrain finally too!
