Hi late season Hunter fans,
The endless winter finally ends this Sunday when the mountain closes. Windham closed for the season last weekend.
There is more snow on the slopes and in the woods than ever for this time of year with 41 trails still open and only a few brown & bare spots visible. Check out the photo below.
The nights have been below freezing preserving the base and skiing has been firm early but quickly turning very soft by mid morning. It is 47 now (30 this am) with very high winds that have forced the Flyer to shut down several times today.
It is mostly sunny with a few high hazy clouds. The NWS forecast: http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?CityName=Hunter&state=NY&site=ALY&lat=42.2112&lon=-74.2157#.U0WGV1f4ZzU shows some rain later this week but much warmer in general.
