I love Sunapee. It is only about 75 minute door to door, the snow is great whether early, peak, or late season, and they take really good care of it.

The learning area is really nice with it's own dedicated quad and free of most of the older crazy kids. There is a warming hut there too which is nice for the little ones. It's a decent walk over to the magic carpet but not unmanageable. Weekdays it's a great mountain and they have a lot of deals midweek. On weekends during prime season the lodge can be so crowded that you cannot sit anywhere especially if there is race stuff going on. This is not only at Sunapee though as you probably know most mountains are crowded on weekends. Parking is usually not too bad if you get there early. My kids really enjoy this place. Great views of Mount Washington and Okemo too I think...

I may consider a season pass someday.
