Best workout on slopes close to city

Best place close to NYC to train and get in shape for big adventures. Express lift on West side has no lines most times and is dedicated to expert terrain only.

Great mountain with varying terrain and great snow making. Tne staff at the lifts has greatly improved over the past few years and the snowmakers do an excellent job of keeping the slopes in shape. All these guys need is to open more gladed areas

We have been skiing at Hunter for many years! It is our winter weekend home 2-1/2 hours from NYC. Our 2 children attended their ski school since they were 4 years old and are now confident and excellent skiers. We like it here because of the varied terrain and low key vibe. It is a family friendly place!

One of the better resorts close to NYC, especially for the more advanced skier/snowboarder. Good variety of places to grab a bite and nice vibe on weekends, with live music.

I have never skied or snow boarded before, but my friends insisted i tried. I can't say much about my personal issues skiing, but the Mountain itself was wonderful. The staff was welcoming and helpful and the mountain crew helped pick me up and gave some free pointers. If you are a first timer like i was, i would wait... More

Close to NYC, efficient, not expensive and well maintained skiing resort. Very good destination for a weekend family skiing trip. There are lots of Black diamond trails; a few - Double Diamond ones (not really :-)), quality groomed, very well maintained snow. Kids and family friendly. Lots of parking space. Good eating choices. It's not something to spend a week... More

Friday to Saturday buddy ski trip. Having been mostly to the Pocono resorts and a few Vermont mountains, didn't know what to expect. It's exactly what it is... Between the two. Tickets are pricey for the size of the place. Nothing around the mountain to make it a return destination. The runs were well groomed. The six person chair was... More

Hunter is a great place to ski if you live in the area or coming up from NYC or NJ. Conditions are great and the trails are well groomed and taken care of! Avoid weekends if you can, higher prices and longer wait lines but if you have to hit the slopes on the weekends it's not to bad! There... More
