Skiing in Waterville Valley.

Waterville Valley is an excellent all-rounder mountain, with Valley Run being a long green option for beginners which is extended by the slightly steeper slopes of Oblivion & No Grit. Head to the many reds available and end the week on the steep but well groomed wide slopes of True Grit, Gema and Ciao.  The ski pass covers skiing in both Waterville Valley and Cannon Mountain.

Apres Ski

A short walk from your hotel into the Town Square will take you to the ice skating rink where you can either hire skates or watch Plymouth University ice hockey team when in action. A little further on you will come across the large convention centre which sometimes hosts discos or movie evenings and the Athletic Club close by offers indoor swimming and a video games room. Horse drawn carts or snow shoe hikes may also be found locally, while a 5 min drive to the mountain will offer the chance of floodlit skiing.

Just 40mins from Waterville you will find the Retail Outlets of Tilton & North Conway, a haven for shoppers. A host of famous designer factory outlets such as Polo Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, Nike, Gap, Nine West are all within a short drive from your hotel. It is predicted that your luggage will increase dramatically on your return journey!
