Ciders in the Catskills

Oktoberfest I with CIDERS IN THE CATSKILLS ​

September 28-29, 2019

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! Enjoy tasting from numerous New York State cideries at our Ciders in the Catskills tasting event held on-site during Oktoberfest!

Admission to the festival is FREE & a cider-tasting voucher is one low price (NOW AVAILABLE) which provides you with 20 cider tastings and a Hunter Mountain Oktoberfest cider-tasting glass! For even more of an experience, treat yourself to a relaxing ride on our Scenic Skyride and commemorative Hunter Mountain Oktoberfest T-shirt with our Oktoberfest VIP Package - see below for details.

Beer lovers don't you worry we'll have plenty of our traditional Oktoberfest beer line ups of porters, ales, IPAs, and traditional German Weiss and more.
