Waterville Valley Resort in Waterville Valley, New Hampshire

>Painted in 1989

Some ski areas are so spread out that it feels like you end up spending more time walking and riding the bus to get from your car to the slopes than you actually do skiing. Waterville is not one of those ski areas. The base area is a complete, self-contained village, with lodging, dining, and skiing all in easy reach. That contributes to the homey atmosphere that Waterville is known for. It’s compact, and easy to get around, which makes the ski experience incredibly stress-free. And on top of that, the skiing is really good. 22 percent of Waterville’s terrain is rated for experts, and 6 terrain parks make it easy to hone your jib skills. But what really makes Waterville so special is the number and quality of their intermediate groomed runs. With 50 runs it’s easy to explore the whole mountain and figure out which ones are your favorites.
