Waterville Valley Resort offers 280+ skiable acres with snowmaking ability on every trail. The ski area peaks at 4,004 feet, with a vertical drop of 2,020 feet, 60+ 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 accommodations in the valley. Once on the trail, you’ll enjoy incredible views of the surrounding White Mountain National Forest. Stop for a warm up and a snack at the warming hut along the trail, or return to the Nordic Center and sit by the fire.
It all started in the mid-1960s, when two-time Olympic ski racer Tom Corcoran was scouring New England looking for a mountain he could develop into a Western-style, year-round ski resort. When he saw Waterville--which had a couple of rope tows and trails, an inn, and 500 acres for sale--Corcoran knew it was the place. For the next thirty or so years Waterville Valley grew slowly and steadily into “the” place to ski in the East.
