Where Will You Ski This Winter?

One thing you can count on about living in New EnglandĀ is that there is no shortage of places to ski. New Hampshire’s Gunstock, Vermon’s Stratton Mountain and Massachusetts’ Ski Bradford are just a few examples of great choices. How do you decide?

  • Your location plays a role, especially if job constraints don’t allow you to take a lot of time away for a ski trip. Unexpected bad weather can result in travel delays, so plan accordingly.
  • If you’re into cross-country skiing, many parks around New England have ski trails. Make sure you know if a trail is designed with skiers in mind.
  • Consider whether the resort has trails for beginners or not. If you’re skiing with kids or newcomers to skiing, it will be easier if beginner trails are offered.
  • When you’re staying overnight, consider what’s close by. You might be ablĀ to make your ski trip into a fun mini-vacation.
