    Mount Sunapee Expansion?

    Last year I had a choice between Mt Sunapee and Loon. I chose Loon because a friend told me Sunapee was like skiing at Ramshead in Killington for an entire day. I'm sure he was exaggerating but I was not unhappy with my decision. Had a blast at Loon. Looks like Sunapee wants to grow (taken from...
