FATMAP difficulty grade
Resort uphill route is via Mossy Brook and Off Broadway (green) to East Side Drive (black diamond).
Then continue from Colonels Chair peak via Fire Tower Trail and Sprucetone Horse Trail to the top Hunter Mountain.
The ridge line is fairly mellow climb with a few steeper sections.
For skiing down is probably better to keep skins on, at least till the Fire Tower Trail beginning. Resort Uphill: Is free and you don't need any pass or band.
But travel is only allowed 2 hours before the start of operating hours.
And skiing down allowed only after the resort opens. More information: https://www.huntermtn.com/the-mountain/about-the-mountain/mountain-safety.aspx
