In 1829 a small settlement in a remote New Hampshire valley was incorporated as a town.



A few farms, perhaps a small store, and a tiny public library—that was all there was to Waterville Valley (map).

Today the little settlement is still there, in a beautiful spot deep within the White Mountains National Forest.

Several decades ago the valley was bought entirely by a land developer who carefully planned and built a resort community.

Two ski areas are handy, a golf course and lots of tennis courts await players, and hiking, bicycling, fishing, and snowshoeing are right at a visitor's doorstep.

Here's what to see and do in Waterville Valley, summer and winter.

The big attaction, however, is winter skiing.
