Ski and snowboard enthusiasts from around the world:

We have been proud to provide you with free access to snow reports, resort guides and more, and we are beyond grateful for your readership and contributions to our community over the years.

Unfortunately given the changing media landscape, Mountain News Corporation has experienced financial declines in recent years. With additional economic challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic now facing our business, it is not financially viable to continue operating.

Mountain News Corporation and our OnTheSnow and Skiinfo websites will be shutting down. We will explore the possibility of selling, partnering, or contributing assets to another media outlet if there is an opportunity to allow for a consistent or enhanced online experience. For inquiries about Mountain News Corporation, please email Feedback_OTS@mountainnews.com.

We want to thank our loyal employees for their tireless work over the years to bring great information to all of you. We take comfort knowing that our collective passion for the sport of skiing and snowboarding will certainly live on.

We’ll see you on the mountain.

Overview

As the Great Northern Catskills' premier winter destination, Hunter Mountain, New York resides only about two hours to the north of New York City and sits at a base elevation 1,600 ft. with a summit that climbs to 3,200 ft. Hunter Mountain maintains renowned terrain across three separate mountains, with high-efficiency, state-of-the-art snowmaking that covers 100 percent of its trails, hence its "snowmaking capital of the world" reputation. The ski resort is so confident, in fact, that it offers a Hunter Mountain Snow Guarantee whereby skiers and riders within a certain time window of purchase can turn their ticket in for a voucher good until the end of the current season. 

The ski area also boasts an award-winning Learning Center and programs and an entire dedicated training mountain designed for beginners and families alike, Hunter One. The mountain's terrain is split evenly between beginner, intermediate and advanced trails, along with 10 percent expert, and seasoned skiers and riders will get their fix on the expert terrain of Hunter West and Empire Terrain park. 

Numerous B&Bs, inns, hotels and motels are available in the area, as well as a few luxury slopeside lodging options.
