(TRAVPR.COM) USA - October 2nd, 2014 -  

WATERVILLE VALLEY, NH – Waterville Valley Resort has been ranked the #2 overall resort in New Hampshire for 2015 by Ski Magazine. Located just 2 hours from Boston, the resort was ranked #14 in the East. After being ranked #18 last year, the new polls would suggest that skiers and snowboarders are becoming more aware of the steps forward the resort has made over the last few years.

Contributing to Waterville Valley Resort’s rankings is success in both Kid-Friendly Activities and Terrain Parks.  Ranking #4 and #3 in the East in each category respectively, the resort ranks #1 in New Hampshire for both. “We’ve become known as New Hampshire’s Family Resort over the last few years and it’s a title we’re proud of,“ said CEO/General Manager Chris Sununu. “In addition to having an exceptional group of instructors on the mountain, we’ve put an emphasis on opening the community up to families so that the fun doesn’t end when you take off your skis and snowboards. Town Square has always been a center for family activity and opening up the new tubing hill in the Valley added an exciting, new dynamic for our guests last season.”

Being among New Hampshire’s top ranked Terrain Parks is not new for Waterville. TransWorld Snowboarding Magazine named Waterville Valley Resort the #4 Terrain Parks in the East and #1 in New Hampshire for 2014. “With a lot of the on mountain experience defined by weather and natural contours, it’s tough to stand out with so many great resorts in the region,” said Parks Manager Luke Mathison. “Waterville Parks focus on progression, from young beginners through advanced freestyle riders, through our series of learning, small, medium, and large parks. Our parks continue to raise the bar with innovative features for all ability levels through creative design and feature flow.”

Waterville Valley Resort was also ranked #3 in the East in Off-Hill Activities. “The tubing hill was even more popular than we expected last season,” said Sununu. “It was a great addition for kids and adults as The Clubhouse features a bonfire and beer and wine. The Recreation Department also has Kids Nights and story times with Curious George. Those along with our traditional Saturday night fireworks, dogsled and sleigh rides make the Valley a great place to bring the family for a whole weekend. The Valley is a truly unique mountain village with plenty of activities  ifyou’re not on the mountain.”

Another highlight in the survey for Waterville was being ranked #5 in the East for Dining and #6 in the East for On-Mountain Food. “Starry Nights has really enhanced our on mountain dining experience,” continued Sununu. “It only happens a few times a year, but there’s nothing better than riding the chairlift under the stars and skiing to a gourmet meal with cocktails and entertainment. We finish the night with s’mores and a torchlight parade down the mountain for a really unique experience for everyone.”

Waterville Valley was designed and planned specifically as a self-contained four seasons resort. Known as New Hampshire’s Family Resort, it features world-class alpine and Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, an indoor ice rink, and activities and events for the whole family.  Waterville Valley Resort offers 220 skiable acres with an altitude of 4,004 feet and vertical drop of 2,020 feet, 50 trails, and 11 lifts.  For more information, call 1-800-GO-VALLEY or visit www.waterville.com.
