Isn't all of Waterville? They don't have much in terms of challenge. There are a couple of steeps but this place is targeted toward intermediate families from metro Boston on day trips.
Agreed that there is very little in terms of challenge...I do enjoy lapping the Sunnyside chair though on a sunny day.
There are lots of bottlenecks at WV and the blues can be a bit on the narrow side for the emerging intermediate skiier or family. WV doesn't really have many runs where you can cruise without having to worry about trail intersections or merging with others coming off blacks and greens.
WV is odd, its not really geared towards beginners, the layout doesn;t do much for intermediates IMHO, and the advanced/expert skier will leave wanting more. It's a tall mountain by NH standards but very narrow and skis smaller than it's vertical would suggest.
If it weren't for the Sunnyside lift I'd probably never go there to be honest.
BTW we skied there because we won a gift card = seasons pass which I used as gift card so we got to experience it for free.
I skied there for free also...I buy the Simon Malls gift card for $250 and do most of my X-Mas shopping on that. They give you an unrestricted voucher to either Cranmore/WV. Next yr I may give Cranmore another shot...it's been probably 8 yrs since I was last there.
