Hunter Mountain is easy to reach from New York and New Jersey – about two and a half hours drive - it has 55 runs over 240 acres of skiable terrain, accessed by 11 lifts.

Hunter Mountain's school encourages people who are quite youth challenged – we're talking into their 70s and 80s, so this is not an ageist comment – to learn to ski, making the point that apart from the falling over bit, this sport is very smooth on the body. The lifts are supposed to have been made especially user friendly for this group, which bodes well for families also, and with 30% of all the runs here most suited to beginners, there's quite a bit of space for these different age groups to learn without running into each other.
