Hunter Mountain, N.Y., isn’t where I actually learned to ski. But Hunter is indeed where I learned to ski. Chasing my older brother down icy black diamonds like Hell Gate and Minya Konka, yard-saling big-time on the double blacks at Hunter West—Westway, under the liftline, even.

The space may be new, but the food is exactly the same, with legendary pancakes (served with real Vermont maple syrup, natch) and eggs accompanied by homemade breads.
