    VAIL SUCKS

    Used to see Orville and Izzy clearing dirty tables in the lodge. I'd like to see Rob Katz do that.

    Hunter Mountain - COVID

    I haven't figured out how to buy a lift ticket for Belleayre this season. The website always says "something went wrong." I've tried emailing them and get no replies. I'd stick with Hunter over Windham. I wish Plattekill were open on Wednesdays since that is when I usually ski.

    Hunter Mountain - COVID

    Lodge is fine. You can make a reservation for a table and they are spread far apart. Seems really empty inside compared to normal. Vail food sucks and is overpriced. I miss Hunter's chili stuffed baked potato.

    Hunter Mountain - COVID

    I was there last Wednesday. This photo is the line out the door to the parking lot to pick up lift tickets purchased online. So still plenty crowded. The lift lines themselves weren't long but I'd say a good 20% of the people don't pull up their masks until they are towards the front of the line...

    VAIL SUCKS

    Hunter is now crowded on weekdays too. This photo is the line of people waiting to pick up lift tickets on Wednesday morning. I've been skiing Hunter on Wednesdays for 25 years and have never seen anything like this before.

    VAIL SUCKS

    West side is still closed this season. Not sure what else would be better at Hunter.

    VAIL SUCKS

    Every person I know who owns a condo in VT bends, ignores or breaks the rules to ski VT this season. I was speaking to a local deli owner about skiing since I had just done my first day at Hunter. He mentioned how many families stop by every Friday to load up with food for their weekend trip to...

    VAIL SUCKS

    You would think Hunter would be good for Vail too, but they sure don't treat it that way.

    Hunter's Mt Status and Snow reports

    I have no problem with today. But they know something needs to be announced for tomorrow.

    Hunter's Mt Status and Snow reports

    How long will they wait to announce tomorrow's status? You can still buy a ticket online or reserve for tomorrow. If they know they are going to be closed they should announce this as early as possible so people can plan accordingly. Or, wait till 10 am and piss off more people.

    Hunter's Mt Status and Snow reports

    I have a reservation for tomorrow. Was hoping for my first day of the season. Really don't want to wake up at 5 for a 2 1/2 hour drive to a closed mountain. I really wish there was an easy way to get an Epic pass refund for my unused pass.

    Hunter's Mt Status and Snow reports

    I've cancelled all 3 of my reservations the past 3 weeks. One a week. Haven't heard a thing.

    Hunter's Mt Status and Snow reports

    https://www.iplivecams.com/live-cams/hunter-mountain-mid-station-cam-new-york-united-states/ Maybe it's the camera angle, but does not look like much social distancing.

    Belleayre Ticket System?

    I emailed them several days ago about the ticket system and never got a reply.

    Cancelling reservations

    I have every Wednesday reserved at Hunter for 7 weeks. Planned on cancelling the night before if I need to. Will cancel tonight and might ski Thursday this week since there is no reason to beat the storm to the mountain.

    Cancelling reservations

    Just received this in an email from Hunter. Not sure if the two paragraphs really say the same thing. We realize that life can sometimes sneak up on you, so don’t worry if you need to cancel your reservation. As long as you do so before 12 a.m. on your planned ski and ride day, then you...

    Hunter is making snow - 11/17/20

    Any idea what might be open at Hunter tomorrow? Not keen on driving 2 1/2 each way for one or two ways down.

    Skier Killed on Lift at Vail

    Might be hard to say anything as you are falling through the opening being strangled by your jacket.
