I am reviewing the bus round trip+ equipment rental+beginners weekend package. The bus leaves at 6:30 AM from 42nd Street. My husband and I were late, and we missed the bus unfortunately. However I called Urban Sherpa who is the company that actually executes the trip (TakeTours only books it), and they were super helpful (even at 6AM, the time I called). Wed decided to drive up to Hunter Mountain so that we wouldn't lose the money for the equipment rental and lesson. We didn't make the 9AM lesson which we had booked, but our representative from Urban Sherpa was again very sweet and helpful, and he called the people at Hunter Mountain to move our class to 11AM. At Hunter Mtn, we had to park far away (the parking lots are all the way to the right side of the lodge), and we didn't know where to go for the check-in so we called the Urban Sherpa rep YET AGAIN, and he was super nice and essentially told us where exactly to go, and the steps we had to follow to get everything started. We went to the Group Sales office and got our passes, then checked in and signed a waiver, then put everything in the lockers in the bathrooms, got our equipment, and went outside to wait for our lesson. The lesson lasted about 1.5 hours, and it was very through. The mountain is a great place to ski, there re kids everywhere and learners everywhere, but everyone has enough room to go at their own pace. Overall, it was an awesome day trip, and even though we missed the bus, we had an awesome time and the drive up there wasn't bad at all!
