Ski The East Resort Review: Mount Sunapee, NH

Report:

Hey Sunapee, Spring Called…She’s Gonna Be Late!

The previous week had dumped 16″ of late season powder in Southern New Hampshire which was followed by a blue bird skies weekend. Skiing this good in April (so close to Boston) was a welcome surprise, the only requirement was to a 6 AM start to get first tracks.

The early ride north was worth the effort, with the roads completely clear the drive from Boston took less than 1hr 45min. First tracks were fantastic and Sunapee had left many runs un-groomed which made for great late season trail and glade powder runs.

This mountain offers great value, fun terrain, and an atmosphere focused on skiing vs resort flare that ill be back for.
