MTV and Jersey Shore creators 495 Productions are taking yet another stab at winning the ratings lottery with a crew of 20-somethings vacationing and partying together. This time around they are switching seasons from spring to winter and switching locations from Seaside Heights and Panama City to the Hunter Mountain ski resort in New York.
Here is the official Winter Break: Hunter Mountain preview trailer followed by MTV’s promotional synopsis for the series:
One season out of the year, the East Coast becomes the “Ice Coast,” and the party moves from the beach to the mountains. Serving as a rite of passage for young people who want to get away for a winter break, Hunter Mountain is an idyllic ski resort that offers twentysomethings the chance to escape their regular lives, ski and snowboard their hearts out and mingle with other likeminded singles. “Winter Break: Hunter Mountain” will document the lives of eight young people who connect over their need to getaway — and the impact their winter together has on their lives.
Of the eight cast members on Winter Break: Hunter Mountain, half of them hail from New Jersey. The other four are from New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and California. We’ve gathered individual photos of each of the cast along with a full list of names and Instagram links:
