I went with a group to Hunter last week. We arrived at approximately 1030 am and it wasnt until 1pm that we got on the slopes. What accounted for this 2.5 hours of lost time???? Well, we waited 2.5 hours to get our skis rented from the time we entered the rental area to the time we received our boots, skis and poles. The place was complete chaois with no system in place to handle the crowd of people renters. When I asked a manager why it took so long, he only responded that if you checked the website, it would have said to get here at 8 am. Hardly apologetic. Then, when another patron angrily asked why it had taken 2 hours to get his snow board, he was met with hostility by a clerk who challenged him to a fight in the parking lot. The animals who run this place should all be fired and an investigation into this scam should be looked at by the appropriate authoritites. My recommendation: DO NOT GO TO HUNTER MOUNTAIN UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES WHATSOEVER!!!!!!!!!
