    are you suggesting that the weight of a Hunter mountain Cheese burger contributed to these accidents?

    Sound pretty dramatic.. Poor shitty skier kids... Was the weeping and gnashing of the teeth?

    There were a lot of variables.. Old and untuned equipment as well..
    I rode that face dozens of times and only had a blast!

    Nope, Alcohol or Ganga might have.

    Are you talking about Hunter North? I believe thatís where the accidents occurred. The people must have been highly intoxicated or not in control to have skied into a tree. Those trails skied like any other blue, so for sure itís not the trail ratings. Hunter attracts a lot of beginner skiers from NYC. I havenít done research on this, but what I suspect happened is that somebody who was not a very talented skier thought it would be cool to skip Hunter East (One) completely and go directly to the brand new trails. Once he went here, he lost control and unfortunately passed away.

    Not true.

    Hunter/Peak Resorts quickly changed their rating to Blue/Black (they put a black diamond inside the blue square with electrical tape).

    Vail has now changed them to Black, and left some off the trail map.

    For a refresher - read the article in this months Ski magazine. However, it only speaks to the deaths and the 2 broken legs on opening day, not the 50+ injuries during the season.

    We went down it..lots of people on their asses..lots of kids..it was just a hard run at the time..no one died that day. Then we went down it about 4 or 5 more times..people were just having trouble with it. We liked it. I guess they were expecting a blue cruiser..
    Lets go!
    I'll drive.

    I can't believe you guys are still debating this. If you don't know the facts about the 3 completely separate incidents then don't comment. Lets enjoy Hunter North!
    From yesterday.
