Ciders in the Catskills

September 23-24, 2017

Autumn is apple season, and when it's apple season, you can bet it's also hard-cider season (which thankfully happens to be year-round), and at Hunter Mountain, we're bringing ciders here! New this year, enjoy tasting from numerous New York State cideries at our first-ever Ciders in the Catskills tasting event held on-site during Oktoberfest!

Admission to the festival is free & a cider-tasting voucher is only $10, which provides you with tastings and a Hunter Mountain Oktoberfest cider-tasting glass! For $19 more, treat yourself to a Skyride and commemorative Hunter Mountain Oktoberfest T-shirt with our Oktoberfest VIP Package! Click here to purchse your Cider Tasting VIP Package!
