We own property in the Valley. Unfortunately, ever since Tom Corcoran and family sold the ski area it has steadily gone downhill (no pun intended). Lift, meal prices have gotten higher, but the quality of both is only worse. Hopefully they will eventually put their...More

Conditions were icy but they worked to groom the mountian. Liftt tickets were an excellent value when purchased online prior to coming. We novice and experience skiers and we all had fun and were challenged.

Overall, we had a good visit. The new peak added some good trails. Lifts moved quickly, we didn't feel crowded. My only complaint is that their food and beverage is overpriced compared to other N.H. ski areas.

I'm sorry, I don't know. This was our first visit here and we were there Monday night - Thursday night. I'm sure can can check their website or call for that information though. The staff there was outstanding!

I'm not sure what your question is or was. I was just a customer so not sure about religious services (Masses) I can comment on Masses of people at lodge. There was not many people there that day.
