As we have done for the past few years, we are again planning a trip to Waterville Valley. The trip was very well attended last year, and we are hoping for a similar success this year. A few years ago, Waterville opened a new peak called Green Peak. It offers 14 New trails, 3 Greens, 7 Blues and 4 Black diamonds, and the skiers who attended last year’s trip thoroughly enjoyed skiing in the new area. They are now equal in size to Loon in that both have 61 Slopes and Trails, and both offer the same vertical drop.
The Ski Touring Center is world class and is within walking distance to the hotel that we will be staying at. It has an excellent reputation for all levels of skiers from beginners to experienced.
We have reserved rooms at the Silver Fox Inn, which is conveniently located in Town Square within walking distance to most everything in Town square as well as the Cross-Country Touring Center. Most of the rooms offer two queen beds, but some offer king beds for those who would prefer a king bed. Included in the rates is a shuttle bus that runs every 30 minutes with a convenient pickup and drop location at the end of the hotel parking lot.
The area also has the White Mountain Athletic Club, but unlike last year, there will be an additional charge to gain access. The club has indoor pools, jacuzzi, indoor tennis courts, free weights and weight room, cardio room, 1 hour of open skate time at the ice arena, and more.
We are planning a Pizza Party on the night of our arrival (Sunday) to be held in one of the above-mentioned rooms, which again is BYOB and is included in the price of the room.
Breakfast is included in the rate each morning, which will be in the dining room. We are also planning four dinners which will be a chef’s choice buffet including a beef option, chicken or fish option, vegetarian option with rolls, butter, salad, starch, and vegetable as well as a dessert table which, is included in the price of the room rates. There is a dining room in the Silver Fox that they open for group dinners, depending on the size of the group and again is BYOB.
If you would prefer not to eat in the hotel on one of the nights, there are several restaurants either within walking distance or a one-minute drive away. Coyote Grill, Valley Pub & Restaurant, La Hacienda Mexicana, La Tasse, Olde Waterville Pizza and Snowy Owl Pub.
The Hotel does not have a Liquor License so we will be allowed to BYOB to all activities at the hotel. There are several meeting rooms that we can use for any social gatherings. We were planning to have a social hour each evening after skiing (both kinds) where we can meet, bring appetizers, wine, beer, or the drink of your choice alcoholic or non-alcoholic.
Everyone who attended the trip in past years found the social gatherings areas a wonderful place to relax and enjoy Après Ski each night.
