Waterville Valley Resort appeals to a wide range of people - from snowboarders shredding up the slopes, to hikers who relish the solace of a mountain trail...from families with young children to active retirees with grandchildren.
This tiny cul-de-sac of a community epitomizes the enduring romance of New England. While residents and developers of other American resort towns wax eloquently about amenities, prestige and exclusivity, Waterville Valley is New England to the very bones of its buildings, individual but team-spirited, protected by the mountains but ready to play. Skiing, golf, camping, hiking, swimming and a hundred other outdoor pursuits invite...yet so does the quiet of the town's library, the peacefulness of the mountain vistas, and the solitude of the 770,000 acre National Forest.
There's something special about Waterville Valley that goes beyond the magnetism of the mountains and the forest -- Its community.
Waterville Valley's sense of community is as real as the mountains and valley, and it's born of the diversity of Waterville Valley's primary and second home residents and vacationing guests.
In her history of Waterville Valley, Grace Bean writes that the pre-1900 guests "who were so fond of the Valley seem to have...simple tastes, a fairly strong moral tone, a love for the outdoors, and the ability to entertain themselves happily."
Bean's statement is an apt description of the people still attracted to Waterville Valley in this new millennium!
Waterville Valley has become one of New England's best-loved skiing resorts, and continues its ongoing all-season relationship with New Englanders.
