We took Friday off from work to ski at Hunter. It was a last minute idea, and I tried calling the rental area on drive up the NY State Thruway to see if they had size 14 boots to rent, but the call went through to Colorado, and with the two hour time difference they were not open yet. An unfortunate side effect of the Vail acquisition of Hunter. My wife ran into the same kind of thing when she had made the reservations to ski at Hunter, all the calls go through to an office in Denver. There was a lack of personnel at the lifts, and almost non-existent communication and enforcement of how many should get on a 6-person lift, the mask-wearing skiers had to pretty much figure out for themselves what was appropriate given the Covid-19 pandemic, other than some signs with general statements about distancing. We asked and were told that Hunter is finding it hard to hire enough personnel to work the ski lifts on weekdays, and it is better on weekends. One other negative was the lack of printed maps of the ski trails, instead there was a QR code scan, urging visitors to get the map that way, which is really not our thing, we'd rather ski with our phones off. On the positive side, we were appreciative of all the snow making that had obviously been done, the trails which were open all had terrific conditions and in surprisingly good shape, considering there was only one major snow storm yet this season. Hence the 3-star rating.
