Hunter Mtn, NY: 4/2/10

Hunter Mountain

Forecast today for the Catskills was sunny with a high around 75, so my daughters and I went skiing. We arrived around 9 to a quickly-filling parking lot. Temps last night went down to around 40 so the snow firmed up.

We started on Hellgate which was softening quickly in the sun with nice small bumps. We stripped down to t-shirts after the first run.

While everything softened up, it didn’t really become slushy. After lunch, we headed over to the west side to ski nice soft bumps.

Then we stripped down to our shorts and skied till around 1:30. By then there were some slushy areas at the base. A fun day in the sun.

  1. Heh, all roads lead to Gore's mountain ops, even in a Hunter TR.

    Nice pix, Jason. I’m hitting the road early to be on the snow at 8:30 at Belleayre. Then going to Jimmy’s Ski Shop to hopefully land some pants.

  2. Jason looks like a great day for Team Temco. Love that pic of the girls on Clares.

  3. Nothin’; like soft spring bumps…

    Did it look like Hunter will make it for another weekend?

  4. I was there the day before!! Great spring skiing till a little after lunch when it all turned to slush..
