Day Trip - Ski Hunter Mtn
Day Trip - Ski Hunter Mtn
February 2, 2019
Come play in the Catskills, skiing and boarding at Hunter Mountain for the day.
One sure way to enjoy winter is on our ski/snowboard day trip to Hunter Mountain! It’s an easy escape from NYC on our private chartered bus - just 2 & 1/2 hours away. There’s fun to be had for skiers and boarders of all skill levels.
After a full day on the mountain, we’ll top the day off with a party on the bus heading home. It’s potluck style - bring your favorite drinks and/or snacks to pass and we’ll bring the beats.
Whether it’s meeting new friends, hanging with existing ones, enjoying aprés, or the party bus ride home, our day trips skiing and boarding are a fun-packed winter’s day.
** NEW For 2019 *** Hunter has expanded its resort - 60 new acres for intermediate and tree-skiers/boarders.

No stress. We are here to make this easy. Below are tips and answers to common questions:
Clothing & Gear
Dress in layers. Think thermals, snow pants and jackets, gloves, and a hat. We suggest wearing them on the way up.
Feel free to bring a change of clothes for the ride home.
We use three primary levels - beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Once we arrive at the mountain we will break into skill levels and swap phone numbers to stay connected on the mountain. We leave no GOAT behind!
NEW to skiing/boarding, no problem! Sign up for our lessons package. We’ll partner you up with experienced instructors and other GOATs that are learning as well.
Lockers ($5) and bag check ($7) areas are available in the base lodge if needed. The bus will be locked up tight and not accessible all day. Food or drinks for our ride home will stay on the bus.
Planning for Lunch & Aprés
The resort accepts credit cards and cash for lunch. To ensure a 4:45 pm departure, please bring cash for the bar and pay as you go.
Party Bus Planning & ideas
Bus time is party time! We’ll turn up the beats and party our way home. To do it up right, below are our suggestions on what to bring:
Drinks: premixed cocktails, beer, or jell-o shots to share.
Food: homemade sweet or savory goodies to feast on that are easily passable. Get creative but don’t stress, this isn’t a baking competition. Ideas: boneless wings, brownies, cake pops, finger sandwiches, cookies.
Stay clear from messy foods or ones that produce waste e.g. sauces, bones, or wrappers.
GOATs with their own transportation and lift tickets are more than welcome to meet and hang out with us on the mountain. Unfortunately only those that pay for the trip can join the party on the bus ride home.
This trip abides by our standard cancellation policy. Cancellations thirty (30) days, or more before the trip will be refunded minus a $20 fee. Cancellations within thirty (30) days before the trip will forfeit the entire trip amount. For your protection, we strongly recommend GOATs purchase trip cancellation insurance.
