Hunter Mountain
Hunter — The second-highest peak in New York’s fabled Catskills region, snowy Hunter Mountain is a mere 2.5 hours north of Manhattan, making its scenic slopes a popular weekend destination. With more than 50 ski seasons under its belt (which generally stretch from November to mid-April), Hunter attracts not only Burton-clad, snowboarding hipsters looking to perfect their ollies and butters, but also families, thanks to its state-of-the-art kid-focused and beginner facilities, including user-friendly lifts and terrain designed specifically with the novice in mind. Our Hunter Travel Guide sifts through the resort's offerings, which include ski and snowboard lessons and workshops for children and adults, newbies, and those simply looking to fine-tune certain skills; experts get their adrenaline fix on the steep double-black diamonds of Hunter West.

Why Go

For scenic slopes for snowboarders and skiers from newbies to experts just a quick jaunt from New York City.
