Preparing the Hills For The Weekend

Windham & Hunter December Trips

Windham & Hunter December Trips

Lack of snowfall and warm weather had delayed our trips to Windham & Hunter mountains until December 12th but the hills have made up for lost time and are blowing a storm on hill.  Covid restrictions will keep a lid on arriving skiers and snowboarders and mountain mandates require us to purchase and declare 24 hours prior to arrival so please book early to reserve our place on hill. A purchase of a rental or lesson at Windham will require an additional reservation and a link will be sent from our back office after your initial purchase.  Our Hunter riders are transport only as Vail properties have restricted the sale of lift tickets and early season participation is held for its preseason purchased pass holders. If you intend on going to Hunter please make a reservation on the Hunter website prior to purchasing transport from Urban Sherpa Travel. We will be adding trips to Camelback soon so navigate back for a schedule.

So hope to see ya ridn’ December 12th board the bus at our Union (6:00am) and Time Square (6:15am)  locations.  Round up your posse and hit the slopes with Urban Sherpa! Check out current snow conditions and live webcam links for Windham and Hunter on our Weather page. So Let’s head to the mountains.

Express Rental Check-in at Windham Mountain

We’ve got exclusive dibs on Windham’s new express check-in feature

We’ve got exclusive dibs on Windham’s new express check-in feature

Working with our partners at Windham Mountain we have streamlined and automated rental check-in to save our posse time and frustration. Purchase a package with rental before noon the day prior to your trip to take advantage of our exclusive express check-in: your lift tickets, gear rentals, and any lesson vouchers will be waiting for you at a separate express counter in the rental area.

Your Urban Sherpa leader will confirm your express status when boarding the bus in the morning. Upon arrival at the mountain, you won’t have to stand in line at the computer terminals or wait for tickets, lesson, or rental chits. Walk right off the bus, proceed directly to the express counter at the rental area to collect your tickets, rentals, and lessons. Skip the lines, try on your boots, grab your board or skis, and head out to the mountain for first tracks or an early lesson.

Express check-in is only being offered at Windham Mountain, so get ahead of the crowd. Gather your posse and plan your trip early—it pays off!
