Waterville Valley Ski Resort Professional Review and Guide
"This tidy resort and town offers parking lot–to–mountaintop coddling, making for a ski experience that’s sanitized but ultimately satisfying. When former U.S. ski team star Tom Corcoran— the resort’s founder—first cut these trails in the ’60s, those at most New England resorts were narrow and twisting. Today almost every resort worth its boomer business has moved to wider, highly groomed boulevards similar to those at Waterville Valley. The broad, well-groomed trails of Mt. Tecumseh and the neatly maintained condos of the adjacent village were made with families in mind. And with weekly packages costing less than $400 (including lift tickets), it’s affordable for groups and couples to pack up and get away, too.
Without ever leaving the village, you can ice-skate, swim, sled, cross-country ski, play tennis indoors, snowshoe, work out, or lounge in a hot tub. This chapter contains a thorough description of the resort including how to get there, mountain statistics, trail profiles, lodging, dining, nightlife, and entertainment."
