Logo   What to Do in Waterville Valley NH




It seems as if they've thought of everything here.

First and foremost, the valley is deep within the White Mountain National Forest, so hiking and fishing are easy to find.

For tennis, there are 18 clay courts and lessons by a professional staff.

The golf course in the valley is nine holes, and not too far away at White Mountains Country Club is an 18-hole course.

Bikes can be rented from the Golf and Tennis Club.

And then, of course, there's shopping in the town square or a ride to the top of Mount Tecumseh on the "High Country Express," the fastest gondola cablecar in the east.


Although snowshoeing, hiking, ice skating, and general taking of country-mountain air are all possible and enjoyable in Waterville Valley, most people come to ski the trails and slopes of Mount Tecumseh and Snow's Mountain. More...

Ski packages for two, three, five, or seven nights are offered, and all facilities in the valley participate. Depending on what you want, you can get a package which includes lodging, meals, lifts, lessons, even rental equipment.

Prices depend on which hotel you choose, and what options you need to do the sort of skiing you're after. Options are also offered for ski touring (trail fees, lessons, equipment, and lodging) in the packages.
