    Europe 2022 ?

    Since I am on the wait list I may not even been going. I do not want to do it on my own for a lot of reasons. I do not need to put anything down and the cancellation policy seems fair and standard. I doubt I will be able to go as she has a steady group of regulars for years I understand...

    Hunter's Mt Status and Snow reports

    seriously ? There was not a person there that could not know what was going on. You could smell it at the 6 pack. and the music drew attention to it. Not a Vail target crowd so maybe the rumors that they want to sell are true. But Hunter can't possibly #1 on that list of mtns they want to...

    Hunter's Mt Status and Snow reports

    It has actually been pretty good, no bumps left however. Yesterday large unmasked crowd (40+ people) smoking pot on the Copper Tree Deck - including one of the groomers ! Totally stoned, which explains some of the missteps this season. Find it hard to believe that given COVID and everything...

    EPIC 2021-2022 Announcement =Pass cost cut 20%

    Agreed. Mid week days were like the old weekend days at Hunter this season. I am at Hunter today and the thought amongst everyone is they had to reduce the cost in order to keep the passholders who are disgusted from this year. They should have given them the discount, and charged anyone new...

    2/28/21 -- Ski Cooper, CO -- New "Tennessee Creek Basin" terrain

    Since most folks do not know Cooper exists, confusing it with Copper, a bit of the 10th mountain history or even Leadville would make it stand out and certainly more interesting. Hope to visit again soon !

    Hunter mountain North parking??

    no - that was David Slutzky. He did not sport handcuffs or a gun. Very nice guy. It was Sutton that was the crazy security guy, eventually got fired

    Your thinking of the old security director, Sutton. He also always had a pistol in full view on his hip.
