Hunter Mountain is a great place to bring the family to ski. All skiing is expensive, so Hunter Mountain is no different, but if you choose mid week skiing usually you can find an affordable family trip. Ski shops in the area can also be a place to find cheap ski rates for Hunter Mountain. Hunter is great for beginner skiers, and has very challenging trails as well. I have been going to Hunter Mountain for years and have not found a nicer mountain for the money.
