Hot Off The Press! POMA 6-pack lift installation beginning soon!

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

We know the skiers and riders who call Hunter Mountain home love our slopes and the energy that surrounds us. We also realize that for our skiers and riders to truly enjoy these slopes, we need to invest in "your" mountain...what better investment, than a brand new base to summit lift?

Leitner-Poma has consistently been the leader in high-speed aerial lifts for the winter sports industry and they have been chosen to supply Hunter Mountain with a detachable Six Pack lift to replace the existing Snowlite Express (Quad-Lift). Construction will commence as soon as our season ends and we plan to have the new Six Pack up and running for some late summer Sky Ride enjoyment.

This capital improvement is another major step in the effort to make your experience here at Hunter Mountain all it could be... And that's not all. In the summer of 2011 we also plan to remove the Z & Y lifts on our famed West Side to make room for a Quad that will carry a new line and allow for better snow making coverage over the black diamond terrain.

We're looking for a name...so please drop us a line if you think you have the perfect name for the new Six Pack at Hunter Mountain!

Stayed tuned and watch our progress on HunterMtn.com all spring and summer long.

I'm sure a bunch of vacation rental homes in the area are cheaper now that the season's mostly over. Best thing to do would be to search the forums for places to stay, or search for vacation rentals/hotels/motels in the Hunter/Windham area. I know a few do lift pass deals as well, but I don't know them. Or better yet, start a new thread where people who know more than I can help!

Nice... but will only make the mountain more crowded :( (especially Belt's). I say add more trails, and keep the uphill capacity. The lines aren't that bad imo.

The new lifts might indeed make the slopes a more crowded, but that may only be in the short run. They could well be the first phase of a long discussed expansion of terrain on Hunter West.

It's kind of exciting if that's the case.

Hunter Blows, I can not stand that place, I have been on wider cross country trails then most of there runs.

Sorry I should not hate that much on the place. I will agree with turtle from enterouge when he says " If you can ski hunter you can ski anything"
