Being a fresh guy in NYC from sunny South Florida, snow sports are all but a new thing for me! No stopping me though! Hunter Mountain has welcomed me with open arms and I believe I’ve found the best mountain to get your ski or snowboarding on in close proximity to NYC for all you city people!
My first issue with getting up to the Catskills was my transportation! Lucky for me, there are plenty of bus lines that take people to and from for day trips which turn out to be cheaper than paying directly to the mountain (no offense Hunter).
My go to and frequently used is run by David of the Urban Sherpa bus line. They have two pick up locations, one at Union Square on 14th and the second in Times Square at 42nd, specifically at the New Amsterdam Theatre.
Cannot describe how happy I am with them. They’re always on time and we’re back in NYC by 8pm the latest and the whole package including gear runs you personally just $125.
WHAT A STEAL!
