I went to Pats Peak ski area and was pleasantly surprised. It is closer to Boston than Mt. Sunapee, which is a great close mountain. While Pats Peak lacks in the high speed quads, the mountain is short enough and fun enough that it does not mountain. Believe it or not, it has challenges for all abilities. Their black and double black slopes can rate with the best of the northeast. The food at the base lodge on the left looking down from the mountain has some work to do. It is basically grilled cheese and soups and the service could have been better and faster, but had the chocolate mouse desert that was only $2.50 and in a good restaurant could have been $12 bucks and it tasted like the good restaurants chocolate mouses. They added another intermediate area which expanded their terrain this year and they do a great job on grooming and snow making. They do not get the crowds of the bigger mountains but this is really a diamond ski area in the rough and awesome for a family.
