Waterville Valley Resort offers 250 skiable acres with snowmaking ability on every trail. The ski area peaks at 4,004 feet, with a vertical drop of 2,020 feet, 52 trails and 12 lifts. But for those who like their skiing with a little less altitude, Waterville Valley’s Nordic Center features 75 km of wide-groomed trails, again with terrain for every ability level, groomed daily for both skate and classic skiing styles. Skiers take off from the Nordic Center in the Valley’s quaint Town Square, or just step out the door of their vacation rental–the trails are only steps away from most of the resort’s accommodations. Once on the trail, you’ll enjoy incredible views of the surrounding White Mountain National Forest. Stop for a rest and a snack at the warming hut along the trail, or return to the Nordic Center and sit by the fire

New Hampshire has many towns that naturally grew around the state’s travel and tourism industry–particularly around its many ski mountains. But only one, Waterville Valley was designed and planned specifically as a self-contained, four seasons resort. In addition to its world-class ski area, Waterville Valley Resort has award-winning tennis courts, golf, hiking, biking, lodging, cultural activities and summer theater, an indoor ice rink, boating, a skate park, and a host of outdoor activities. Dining options include traditional favorites and elegant dining. For more information, call 1-800-GO-VALLEY or visit
