Want a fancy resort with a glitzy village? Keep driving for a couple hours. But if you want the No. 1–ranked Grooming and No. 2–ranked Snow just 90 minutes from Boston, park the car at Sunapee. This midsized mountain “packs a punch,” thanks to meticulously groomed terrain, relentless mogul runs, gentle cruisers and spectacular panoramas of the lake and beyond. With such easy accessibility come weekend crowds, but the “great separate learning area and terrain parks for all ages” and the friendly staff keep everyone in the happy zone.
