    This project doesn’t seem very thought out. Wow.
    I believe it was 4 new gladed areas. They're still there and always have been.

    They would just need about 4 feet of natural to be safe....

    “Cleared” is a very optimistic way of describing the “glades” removed from the map.

    Hunter has not been known for glade skiing ..for a while now. But I will never forget the storm of the century that dropped 8 feet in 3 days. EVERYTHING was open..every inch. Need another one of those.

    Seriously, if you don't know Hunter than you might as well stop guessing. 2 of 3 last years, those "new " glades were all ski able cleared or not. Its great terrain for advanced skiers. Regarding, the snowmaking pipe, well thats something we'll figure out. There are plenty of other access points.

    I'm pretty sure the "new" glades being referred to are the ones that were added as part of Hunter North, but never opened last season because there was damn little natural over there. If you were bushwhacking your way way off piste into those trees in the years before that, good on ya. You were pretty much the only one.
