From its inception in the late 1950s, the management of Hunter Mountain has employed extensive snowmaking facilities. Hunter was the first ski destination in the state of New York to install snow-making, the first in the world with top-to-bottom snow-making, and the first in the world to have 100-percent snow-making coverage of the mountain.
The resort offers snow tubing and snowshoeing as well as skiing. Hunter Mountain also features two terrain parks and holds freestyle events throughout the ski season.
During the mid-50’s a group of local businessmen, including Orville, Karl Plattner Sr. and Israel Slutzky, developed plans to revive the area's economy after the Great Depression, World War II and the decline of Catskills tourism had caused long-term economic distress. The sport of skiing was becoming popular, and the group considered developing Hunter Mountain as a ski resort. After a failed lobbying attempt to get the state to develop a new ski area on Hunter Mountain, the group contacted Denise McCluggage, a sports editor at the New York Herald Tribune. They told her they had a mountain to give away to any developer who would build a ski area called Hunter Mountain on it. McCluggage wrote an article that attracted the interest of a group of Broadway show-business people.

I love this place. This season I’ve been able to make it 1-3x a week and I haven’t been bored once. I love the trails, the crowd and the community it brings in. Honestly, the food sucks...It’s... more »

Went to Taste of Country Music festival. Sheriffs Department deputies were very nice and very helpful. The Security Company that was hired were polite and helpful. They did there job very well. We personally saw a few instances that they handled very professionally and quickly. 1 of which was involved the State Troopers who were equally professionally. However the security in Blue shirts did not in my Opinion do a very good job. There was a fight between 2 girls in front of her. The crowd was pushing in. Someone yelled for them and asked if they were going to help. They did not! My daughter is fine and with the help of someone behind her she was pulled away from the fight. The people in Blue shirts should I believe be following the rules as they other company.
The views were incredibly beautiful. The ride up and down the mountain was alot of fun. The only problem was we had to leave. I would give 10 stars if I could. Love the Hudson Valley
July, picture perfect, beautiful weather, outstanding views of the mountains. They offer zip lining Outdoor Adventures and more. The staff were very helpful very accommodating. A very nice place to bring the family. And your Jeep :)
The sky ride at Hunter was a lot of fun fory three kids, myself and my father. There is plenty to look at once you are at the top and room to spread out for a picnic. The only negative, and not Hunter's fault was that I was terrified on the chairlift. Of you are afraid of heights like I am, be mindful that you might not like the ride up or down.
We couldn't have picked a better place to have our wedding! The staff was on point and exceptionally accommodating, we had such a great time.
