We always have a great time, close to the city & affordable for yourself and the whole family. Plenty of places to eat and very clean. Plenty of ski runs & no wait time (at least for us) for the lifts. ... More

Hunter Mountain offers the best skiing conditions closest to where I live, which is in Northern New Jersey. When I'm not able to go out West to snowboard, I enjoy the terrain at Hunter Mountain.
