**Afternoon update*

Good afternoon skiers and riders!

Today the fresh snow, groomed trails, mild temperatures and sunny skies made for great conditions on the slopes!

Our College Races were a success – if you missed out on the action today stop by Lower Broadway tomorrow and check it out!

This evening if you are not taking advantage of our extended twilight hours until 6pm on Hunter One then head over to the Main Bar for live music with the Lustre Kings happening right now!

Tomorrow is going to be another great day here at the mountain! We can expect mostly sunny skies and slightly warmer temperatures - a high of 35 degrees. Our Grooming Team will be out making fresh tracks on most of our trails tonight so make sure you get an early start so you can claim first chair!

Our trail rating system rates each trail against other trails at our area only. All trails are rated from their summit location in comparison to other trails at the same starting point. The easier rating does not always mean easy skiing. Caution must be used in selecting trails that are not beyond your ability. Trail conditions may become difficult due to weather or skier/snowboarder use. Skiing and snowboarding are dangerous sports that can result in serious injury or death. Remember, you must always be in control.

These general surface conditions apply only at the time of this report. Check morning and afternoon trail reports and latest weather reports for updated information. Hunter Mountain management advises skiers and snowboarders that trail conditions vary constantly due to weather changes, grooming, snowmaking and skier/boarder use. Ice, bare spots, variations in terrain, moguls, rocks, forest growth, lift towers, snowmaking equipment and other obstacles and hazards, including other skiers/boarders, exist throughout the area.
