I'm still quite confused about these incidents. When I skied the trails, they were like any other blue on the mountain.
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.
