Bretton Woods is nice. Fast lifts, not crowded, friendly people. Pretty much every trail is flat, but you can still have some fun. Not a ton of vertical either. Despite this, we had a great time. After a few runs on some of their harder rated trails (still flat), we decided to go over to the Rosebrook Canyon Glades. We hung out over here for the rest of the day and had a blast. Glades were pretty thin, and like the rest of the mountain, flat. This was fine though, there were plenty of different lines you could take through the glades, and a few little bumps to hop off. Definitely a great place for a beginner to learn how to ski glades. Lift tickets are a bit expensive, which seems to be an ongoing trend in New England, but I skied for free so I was unaffected. I will probably go back.
