Hadn't been to Hunter since i was a kid and made it back there this year.
The Friday i skied there it was wonderful, lots of new snow, no crowding, my kids and i had a blast. Then came Saturday! Oh my gosh, was it awful! I haven't seen a more crowded mountain with horrible skiers in about 20 years! It was downright dangerous. My daughter almost got clobbered on "belt parkway" by an out of control boarder! The slopes were overgroomed and icy. Where had all the fresh powder gone? The element of "skier" at Hunter left a lot to be desired. Lots of lousy,obnoxious skiers ,bragging about skiing dangerously and above their ability in overcrowded conditions and many of them drinking in the a.m. We left early. You couldn't pay me to ski there on any weekend!!
