About the Ski Resort

If you're looking for the Big Mountain experience, look no further. Hunter Mountain is only two hours north of Metropolitan New York in the beautiful northern Catskill Mountains, and boasts trails to impress and accommodate every skier and snowboarder. Whether you are a first timer or a seasoned pro, the Hunter Mountain experience is a match for your skills.

With three mountains, Hunter offers many of the traditional snow sports associated with mountain resorts. We've broadened the possibilities for snow adventure and excitement by offering snowshoeing, snowtubing, and a half-pipe in our Terrain Park, allowing skiers, snowboarders and visitors of any skill level to relish our great outdoors.

There's a vertical drop of 1,600 feet and you'll ski or ride over 230 acres on 53 trails with more variety than you can handle in a day or two or more. The lifts are fast, with a carrying capacity of nearly 15,500 skiers per hour. With Hunter One, Hunter Mountain and Hunter West, there's triple the fun.
Our beginner's area, Hunter One, has 5 lifts and tows serving 16 trails for beginners and novices, as well as some "more difficult" terrain for the intermediate skier or rider.

Commitment is the word that best describes the attitude toward snowmaking at Hunter Mountain. Long ago, the nickname, "The Snowmaking Capitol of the World" was applied and there will never be a more adequate moniker. Whenever the weather dips to the freezing point, Hunter's arsenal begins to rage. And, it doesn't stop until the temperature rises again.

Traditionally -- and this past winter was no exception -- Hunter has the deepest base in the Northeast. When the reports are bleak across the Northeast, skiers and snowboarders have learned to ignore them; they simply head to Hunter Mountain where they know there's snow.
