North Conway, NH – According to TripAdvisor’s Ski TripIndex, North Conway, New Hampshire (and all of surrounding Mt Washington Valley) offers the best ski and ride destination value in the Northeast with a TripIndex Ski cost of $247. TripAdvisor’s TripIndex Ski highlighted the combined average cost of common ski trip expenses including a one-night hotel stay, a single-day lift ticket, a basic ski equipment rental package, and a meal at a local restaurant consisting of a burger and fries and a bottle or draft of domestic beer, and found Mt Washington Valley to be the best value east of the Mississippi and among the top five in the country.

This is the second year in a row that Mt Washington Valley has received the “#1 value in the Northeast” designation from TripAdvisor’s TripIndex Ski formula and it didn’t get there by accident.  Between the incredible ski-and-stay packages and the ticket deals, Mt Washington Valley’s 13 ski resorts and XC Centers also offer up more premier skiing and boarding terrain than any other destination in New England.  Add to that six-feet of snow which fell in parts of the Valley from Christmas to New Year’s,  and Mt Washington Valley can provide more skiing and riding for the buck than anywhere in the Northeast.  Mountain Coasters, Winter ziplines & Adventure Parks, tubing, snowshoeing, SnowCoach sightseeing tours, dog sledding, sleigh rides, skating and snowmobiling galore all add to the fun, making this the year to hit the trails on sled, sleigh or skis!
