Waterville Valley Resort New Hampshire is the perfect getaway for travelers seeking family fun winter, summer and fall. In fact, it is the only resort in the middle of the White Mountain National Forest. Waterville Valley is an inland island – completely surrounded by the 800,000 acre National Forest on all sides. This year is the 100th anniversary of the creation of the White Mountain National Forest. The Resort will be celebrating all year with hikes, fireworks, programs, animal shows, concerts and new offerings.
Designed as a pedestrian and bike friendly resort, with free public trolleys, the nation's first network of trails, and the first Dark Skies town in New Hampshire, Waterville Valley is a place where you can park your car and leave it, and enjoy your mountain getaway.
Waterville Valley Resort is a fully-featured resort area with world-class skiing, golf, 18 internationally-ranked tennis courts, a skateboard park, year-round ice arena, hiking, biking, water sports, boating, and cultural activities that range from bluegrass festivals to Shakespeare under the stars. What it doesn't have are fast-food places, stoplights and big box stores. Waterville Valley is a unique combination of resort area, historic town, and nature-lover's paradise, with an emphasis on family and community that brings people back year after year.
