NASHUA, NEW HAMPSHIRE -- SnoCountry Snow Reports Review

SnoCountry Snow Reports are FAKE. GARBAGE -no- Truth. I just learned Snocountry Ski Reports is a paid PR firm in NH owned and operated by ski resort members.
SnoCountry.com is the website name for NESAC a/k/a New England Ski Area Corp - owned by NE Ski Resort Members.

SnoCountry reported: Hunter Mtn had Great Skiing top to bottom. This snow report was 100% Fabricated Junk & Untrust Worthy. (didn't want to say 100% BS)

On Sunday our family wanted to go skiing after reading the SnoCountry snow reports. We drove 2.5 hours, wasted $139 in gas and tolls, and purchased 4 ski tickets for another $260.

Please be advised:
Hunter Mtn slopes were white washed and in terrible condition! The base had less than a few inches of stuff on the trails. photos here:

Man Made Snow by itself is "plain garbage". MYou need a Natural Snow Base of at least 10" - 24" to make skiing super fun and enjoyable. The man made stuff is OK to cover a bare spot here and there.

Did You Know?
Man Made Snow is really frozen ice chunks (high pressured water). The machine groom turns ice chunks in to BIG Frozen Golf Balls. MSkiing on golf balls is extremely hard and painful on the body.MEach turn gives you instant Thigh Burn. If you fall, expect nasty bruising & swollen black & blue marks!

I'm an expert skier and a former ski patrol veteran. Skiing today, at best was both painful & grueling.MMy thighs are still aching! And I ate 2 bananas with breakfast.

My Skies would stick often to the ice balls and Mwithout warning you come to a jolting dead stop. My skies were waxed and super sharp and I'm an expert skier.

Think about this
Ever drive your car on an unpaved bumpy road?MEvery car rattle is 200% louder, and your body Mgets bounced around a lot. Same thing skiing on man made snow
a-k-a frozen golf balls - it's a very hard on your body.

My wife is an expert rider and was practically in tears. MShy said; this man made stuff was miserable hard and not fun.

My professional advice is:
Stay away from any ski resort until they get a least 10" to 24" of Natural Snow, yes natural!

Thank you,

I thought everyone knew that those reports came from a trade group, and you have to take them with a grain of salt. In as much as we haven't had any snow to speak of, and it hasn't been particularly cold either, I'm not sure what you expected to see on the slopes.
I would, however, have requested a refund on the spot when I saw the slope. That's not only lousy skiing, it's just plain unsafe.
