You have all helped with vacation plans before and now I am hoping you can come through again.
The first and most obvious question is that although I am originally from Maine, it has been many years since I’ve been skiing in New England. How are the slopes generally during the week of Thanksgiving (we would be returning home on the day before Thanksgiving)? I ask because I see this is ‘value season’ so I worry that the slopes won’t have snow yet.
That said, I have been looking at and torn between:
Sunday River, Sugarloaf, and Attitash/Wildcat. I’ve skiied at Sunday River in my teenage years and climbed Wildcat during the summer, but have not stayed at any of the lodging in the area.
I would love slopeside lodging so that ideally I can ski right into our hotel (although we will likely rent skis so that may not work out) and although I cannot say money is no object, it looks like from most of the rates I’ve seen so far, money should not be a problem. Assume no more than $250/night, not including tickets and food of course.
Does anyone have any recommendations for places to stay in these areas? I also assume coming from Atlanta I would want to fly into central NH or Maine and get a rental car (avoiding Boston would be very important).
So please, spill your guts, and if you know of a nice slope that will entertain for 4 days outside of what I’ve listed in the New England area, please share!
