I have probably cross country skied at hearly every resort or track in New England... this was one of a handful that I have not experienced. If the snow is good, then try this place! It is only a few miles down back winding roads from North Conway. It is out of the way but worth the trip. From what I saw of the down hill skiing, I would reccomend that to you also, particularly for those who are very part time skiers and those with young children who need an easy going place.
We stayed in room 113, in the Mill building. I would suggest this room --- comfortable (very roomy) and near the pool.
The only thing that needs to be watched is the rental line. It is huge and takes your time away from enjoying winter sports. Rent later in the evening for the next day.
We went with a group and the rate was fantastic for 5 meals and two nights stay $295.00 per person. I understand that the cost is far steeper if you book singly.
