Mount Sunapee is less than 2 hours from Boston and the closest "big mountain skiing" with a vertical drop of 1500' and skiing for all levels including several steep groomed trails. Their snowmaking and grooming are superb. They bounce back quickly from the freeze/thaw cycles of New England weather and always provide a good surface for skiing and riding. The view from the summit out over Lake Sunapee with the White Mountains beyond is one of the top 5 views in the east. Looking out the back side you can see trails on a number of Vermont ski areas - Okemo, Killington, Bromley, Stratton and Mount Snow. Of the base lodges the newer (Sunapee Lodge) is light and airy with large pine supports going up 2 floors. the other base lodge (Spruce Lodge) has the charm and feel of a middle school cafeteria. The old Summit Lodge has a lot of charm, great views and a very interesting and unique firplace. The daily lunch specials are very good, but rather heavy. The rest of the food is expensive and run of the mill. Great day trip from Boston!
