Little Gem: SIGNPOST

Here are some suggestions for skiing, staying and dining at Stoneham.

Sleeping In: November 2001

Travel East

The Bretton Arms Country Inn Bretton Woods, N.H.
(Near Bretton Woods, Cannon Mountain, Attitash)

The monstrous and formal Mt. Washington Hotel can be intimidating. It's nice to wander through its showy and historic public rooms and admire its beauty and the natural beauty that surrounds it, but nearby on the same grounds is a more intimate, less-expensive alternative. The 34-room Bretton Arms, a National Historic Landmark, was built in 1896 and first opened to guests in 1907, a few years after the 200-room Mt. Washington was constructed.

Little Gem: Valley High

Travel East

Burlington's backyard playground mingles scenery, slopeside lodging and family-friendly terrain at prices that please the frugal New Englander.

2003 Number 30 Resort in North America: Alpine Meadows, Calif.

Features

It's not as glitzy as next-door Squaw Valley. Nor does it have all the amenities of its more famous neighbor. And you won't find many ski-and-snowboard rock stars hanging out at the base here. But you won't find many posers, either.

Little Gem: A Little Legend

Features

This Sierra Nevada ski area has wooed patrons with its steep terrain and bountiful snow since 1931-and its attraction is only growing.

Little Gem: For Families, It's Tops

Travel Midwest

Treetops' variety of activities caters to families, but its charm, views and proximity to the vibrant town of Gaylord make it a great getaway for all Midwestern skiers.

Little Gem: Trails Of The City

Travel East

Blue Hills has been keeping Boston kids off the streets since the Thirties. Now new managers are bringing much-needed upgrades to a bustling urban playground.

Little Gem: 1,000 Feet of Fun

Travel East

With rugged terrain and more snow than you've got a right to expect in upstate New York, Plattekill measures up. And now's your chance to get a piece of the action.

Little Gem: Remote, Remarkable

Travel East

Good snow, great views and a plucky little mountain that's not so little: Why Big Squaw is worth a drive to the frozen northern reaches of Maine.

Little Gem: The Cozy Thing, Down Pat

Travel East

Forget about average annual skier-visit numbers. On these southern New Hampshire slopes, success is measured in M&M cookies.
