Meet at West 45th Street and 11th Avenue and board the bus for world-renowned Hunter Mountain. Many consider Hunter, which boasts one of the highest peaks in the Northern Catskills, to have the best ski terrain in the region.

Suit up with ski or snowboard gear (rentals are included for those who don’t own their own). Plus, snowfall here is some of the most reliable in the East, but when Mother Nature flakes out, Hunter’s got pioneering snow-making technology to pick up the slack.
