My husband and I had a great weekend in Waterville Valley. We love to cross country ski, and all the trails are accessible right out the door of the condo. We spent 10 minutes driving to the nordic center the first day, only to laugh and realize that the walk to our car was longer than the walk from the condo to the town square (and ski center). It was awesome- we didn't need to drive again, and we skied nearly all of the trails in Waterville. It's a beautiful, quiet little village. We really enjoyed being able to bring our own food and not deal with the hassle of going out to eat. We'd go again, and we'd definitely recommend to friends.
