When we started out skiing and snowboarding, we did
lots of it at downhill resorts with lifts. Now we get to most of
our downhill runs by climbing up on our power. But skiing with
lifts was a great way to learn, and lots of fun. And it's still
fun when we do it now.
Back when we did lots of downhill skiing, it seemed to us that there
were two kinds of skiers in the Hudson Valley: Those who refused
to ever ski at Hunter, and those who skied only at Hunter.
We were in the second group.
Those who refused said they hated the crowds and the "New York City
attitude" of the skiers.
But for us it had to be Hunter -- because Hunter had the most and the best
advanced runs: steeper, longer, more interesting, and more of
them. With access to interesting backcountry.
Also the best view -- northeast to the three Blackhead peaks.
And back then we found we could avoid the worst of the crowds by good
timing of which lift to use.
