Waterville Valley is located in the beautiful White Mountains of New Hampshire. Here, a 4,000-foot summit helps form a natural snow pocket, which results in better snow quality. But, just in case, Waterville Valley has enough snow making to cover 100% of its terrain.
Waterville Valley was founded in the early sixties by U.S. Olympic skier Tom Corcoran and has been the host of 13 World Cup skiing events. The skier area has 2,020 vertical feet and 52 trails accessed by 10 lifts including two high-speed quads. Their terrain variety includes everything from gentle learning slopes (Valley Run is rated the best beginner run in New England) to bumps, glades and black diamond steeps. The more extreme will also enjoy the Exhibition Terrain Park featuring a 400-foot Superpipe.
Waterville Valley is a historic town surrounded by 700,000 acres of national forest. In the quaint village you will find lodging options, Nordic skiing, ice skating, shopping, sleigh rides, indoor tennis and various dining options. This is the perfect place to escape traffic, stop lights, fast food restaurants and chain stores. The town square offers a variety of restaurants offering everything from pizza and burritos to fine dining at the Coyote Grill. Whatever your interests, Waterville Valley has something for everyone.
