Mount Sunapee was a delightful surprise... went day after Christmas, so no crowds, and having just gone to Okemo the day before, I would have to say Mount Sunapee's snowmaking and grooming is far superior. Everything about the place was nice for a day trip smallish resort. The staff were super friendly. The base lodges were clean, modern and lovely. The real wood fireplace at the summit lodge... just awesome! The variety of terrain was quite good although their blacks were unusually easy. They looked to have great glades but they did not have enough natural snow to have any open on my visit. I would like to go back just to try them.
