Been coming here for 20 years. Everything is still the same. People are VERY nice. Midweek skiing here can’t be beat. I just wish they had everything open midweek. The lift to the very top was not on.

Such a great place to visit. So much to see and do. Lots of outdoor activities. The freedom pass is great, with access to swimming, biking, boating, tennis, golf.

There is something for everyone here. Black Diamond trails to a Kinder park for the little ones. The grooming of the trails is superb. The new area that was opened this past year adds more choices for the skier. I suggest that the mid week...More

the place is nice-ish, family friendly at times, but it could use a few new shops to purchase clothing, gifts and other Waterville Valley souvenirs. The restaurants are bad, especially Mulligans! Also making the grounds around the shops, beach and canoe area smoke-free would behoove...More

We own property in the Valley. Unfortunately, ever since Tom Corcoran and family sold the ski area it has steadily gone downhill (no pun intended). Lift, meal prices have gotten higher, but the quality of both is only worse. Hopefully they will eventually put their...More

I'm not sure what your question is or was. I was just a customer so not sure about religious services (Masses) I can comment on Masses of people at lodge. There was not many people there that day.
