Going to assume nothing, since its a private road owned by Peak. Can't imagine it receives a lot of traffic in the winter, other then mechanics and lift operators.
Injured People from the West Side get taken to First Aid by Bus down that road. I don't recall it being Paved. Clear a new path and add some rock Ballast and you have a new Service Road linking to the new parking Lot.
I'd be very excited as well. Never skied Hunter, but with it's reputation for crowds it sounds like they could use the additional acreage.This essentially is the biggest change at Hunter since I started skiing there in 1972. Even though its intermediate, I am still excited!
You have the Belt and White Cloud, I don't think the Summit can handle off loading the 6 Pack, West Side Quad, F Triple and a new Quad. Just not enough room ford all those People.
The real question will be, how late will the new are be open? With a parking lot, they'll have to keep access available.
