MTV is hoping to score a hit series that’s as popular as its Jersey Shore with a new show filmed in the Hudson Valley. Unlike the boardwalk and hot sand that was Snooki’s home turf, the network hopes the show that debuts February 27 will turn up the heat at a ski resort.
Winter Break: Hunter Mountain brings together eight young adults in a cabin at — you guessed it — Hunter Mountain in Greene County. The reality TV show guarantees parties, romance, the requisite drama, as well as outdoor fun like skiing and snowboarding.
The cast is East Coast-heavy, and of course, all twentysomething:
Jeffrey Brewer (J. Brew), Manchester, N.H.
Marc Vindas, Bergenfield, N.J.
Carissa Witham, Waterbury, Conn.
Jillian Metz, Manalapan, N.J.
Alex Shinder (Sheen), Hoboken, N.J.
Taylar Shinn, Oroville, C.A.
Alessandra Camerlingo, Blairstown, N.J.
Taylor James (TJ) Angus, Rutland, M.A.
Alas, there are no native Valleyites in the cast, but really, who could top Poughkeepsie-and-Marlboro’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, anyway?
