Thanks for the tip and positivity! I will make it a point to try Catamount this season. I think my brother goes (his family skis a handful of days) and they really like it. It doesn't appear to get the big crowds on holidays.
Q: Is Catamount on the Indy pass (I think) you had written about? We ski fairly frequently, so we will probably be a pass fam for the next few years until kids are old enough to strongly resist going up.
I think the best way to approach is to try some of these other mountains and then dig deep into pass research in the off season. If Hunter is now less crowded (a big if that I don't know the answer to) one of these mega passes may work for my family if we go for a trip out west. The kids are good enough skiers now where that might make sense.
If we were willing to do the 4 hour trip, Gore would be great for us. I know sometimes people get ticked with operations, but it is head and shoulders above what Belle is doing, and the folks on the hill seem very nice.
