The best ski town in New York

Welcome to HUNTER

The gorgeous town of Hunter is located in Greene County, amongst the Catskill Mountains.

Known for providing a rural feel with a charming, village downtown area, Hunter is a beautiful neighborhood for New Yorkers who desire to live somewhere wholesome and peaceful.

Hunter offers residents more than just natural amenities—the area also has a small downtown area with popular restaurants and boutiques. Due to its location, this elegant little town sits high in the Catskills making it the perfect place for outdoor sport; not too hot or humid in the spring and summer months, gorgeous in the fall, and cold enough in the winter to keep the ski slopes covered in snow.

People & Lifestyle

Hunter is perfect for those looking to live a substantial distance away from any suburban-urban area, such as New York City or Albany. The area offers various terrain, from mountainsides and hills to flat ground. Hunter is peopled by locals who’ve lived there for generations, transplanted New Yorkers, telecommuters who want to walk out their door into the wilderness, and second homeowners who come for the weekend and vacations. While Windham is rural, it’s in no way backward - this is a place where homesteaders mix with world-class musicians and financiers.

There’s plenty to do in town— with endless outdoor pursuits as well as unique eateries and boutiques you’ll find nowhere else. 

Grab snow gear and a pair of skis from the local Snowbird Ski Shop. For common household items, from food to medicine, check out the Hunter Country Store. From pet supplies to home improvement must-haves, shop at Village Hardware.

Afterward, enjoy a delicious, juicy burger and ice cream at Mama’s Boy Burgers.
