    I'm just asking because when that video was shot, I don't think the north side lift was running.

    I'm still quite confused about these incidents. When I skied the trails, they were like any other blue on the mountain. Can someone please explain to me why it could be seen as the mountain's fault?

    More to do with today's society and the perspective that when something goes wrong, it can never be the "fault" of the individual, but instead must be the fault of someone/something else.

    Exactly what I was thinking, but people were saying it was the mountain's fault. That's why I asked.

    There's a population of people that will stop at nothing to diss on Hunter..
    They may've not been there for 20 years but they remember when they pissed themselves looking down Clairs in 1981... And how afraid they were - and how they couldn't "man up" and enjoy it..

    Clair's and Anna..never get tired of them. The West side is still one of my favorite places to ski on the E coast..secluded, steep. When its good you can spend a day back there..and you will feel it the next day.
    Lets go!
    I'll drive.

    I don't know of any other fully-covered Hunter blues that patrol will keep closed until the afternoon, so the temps can warm and soften them a bit as they might West runs like Clair's. But I've seen that happen on Overlook.

    IMO it's a hard blue in good conditions, albeit one which offers a particular set of temptations (width, steepness, lack of crowds) which can be a lot of fun for very competent skiers and very dangerous for less adept, possibly-tanked-up, straightliner bombers. Marking and marketing it originally as "intermediate" obscured the latter part.

    Skied right to our car, no walking required.
