Excellent time to going skiing. Even if mother nature does not help out with snow Hunter and Windham will have made enough snow to cover the entire mountain. You should have a great time.
This place may have some good deals on mid week room including lift ticket
Also check out the big lift card at Hunter Mtn, which should save you money skiing at Hunter.
Its a great time to go skiing in the east. Its early in the season and if conditions are right the ski areas will be making deep man made powder on sections of the mountain for the folks that like that sort of thing. Check the snow conditions reports at the mountain to find out what trails they are making snow on.
If you have folks that can ski groomed single black diamonds, Hunter is awesome because it has a lot of these trails. Windham and Belleayre have a higher percentage of intermediate trails. If you have folks that like moguls and you don't find any at Hunter and Windham than give Belleayre a try. Belleayre is not that far away. You may get lucky and Belleayre may have made fresh man made snow the night before on some of their mogul trails. You may get real lucky and Hunter is making tons of snow on the Hunter west side and you could have deep man made powder there, which would be awesome.
Great time to ski in the Catskills.
