Waterville Valley Resort Marks 40 Years

Waterville Valley Resort, New Hampshire, has been well known for its ski area, which features trails and activities for all ages and abilities.

In the mid-60s, Olympic skier Tom Corcoran scoured northern New England for just the right mountain to fulfill his vision of a year-round destination ski resort. When he saw Waterville Valley- which then had only a couple of rope tows and trails, an inn, and 500 acres of land for sale -Tom knew it was the place. The region is a snow pocket, and the U.S. Forest Service had already mapped Mount Tecumseh as a potential ski area. With guaranteed forest around its borders, Corcoran knew he could limit development by purchasing almost all of the privately held land in the valley.

Rebirth for Burke, VT

In Vermont’s remote, lovely Northeast Kingdom, resort developers have big plans for a quiet little town and its long-slumbering ski area.

“This is it?” That was my first thought upon arriving at Burke as a teenager for a ski race some 25 years ago. That phrase became a refrain as I hiked the slalom course next to the small, broken-down, Poma and sought refuge from the New England cold in the bare-bones Mid-Burke Lodge. Knowing Burke Academy’s reputation for churning out Olympians, I was shocked that so humble an operation had such stature. Of course, like many youngsters, I wasn’t looking very far beyond my own ski tips.
