Scottski and I pre-celebrated his birthday by pillaging in the Catskills. We partied like it was 1999.

On Sunday he came my way and laid down his cash to ski my mountain.

We'd seen pics of Ridge Run from Saturday, but still we were skeptical. Turns out it was awesome. I love the look of a ski trail that wasn't made with dynamite, and has never had snowmaking.

After we had beers, went out to dinner and passed out early.

This morning we had coffee and bacon for breakfast, and then headed to his home hill, Hunter Mountain, it was my turn to pay.

I started following him first thing...

Great day. Seemed like most of a foot up top.

I always thought the architecture of the Hunter Lodge was pretty interesting. Not sure I love it, but always drawn to the wavey roof lines.

Glad the NE is finally getting some snow! When I saw the MRG single chair was closed a week or so ago in mid-January - bad winter...

So extremely rare to even have a shot to get the goods this year in the east. Glad you could storm chase as it were.

The key word is "construction." :icon-lol:
Well the slutzky's did own a construction business prior to owning a ski area. There certainly wouldn't be a ski area there if it weren't for bulldozers and dynamite!

Thanks for the feedback all. Scoring at Hunter is great because no matter how much NWS calls it, people always seem to surprised by it.

I named this thread "NY/VT" because that specifically is NYSB's mission. But I find myself looking more and more within New York, starting on our NY page when looking for snow.


The tail is wagging the dog.

There's a new glade at Titus, I wanted to check it out.

I waited for a Titus moment... when they get snow and everyone else... didn't.

Bottom of Upper

It paid off. All trees were in play and the snow was quiet.

Skied very nicely, I must say.

Titus sure isn't close to... well almost any Americans. Much closer if you live in Ottawa or Montreal, though they have better pitch-ed local areas.

Surprising how many ski areas are related to or very close to various mining/resource extraction operations. I demand a picture of the open pit mine at the base : ) (Though I forget what they mine there).
