I learned to ski at Pats Peak in the early 1970's. I am now in my 40's, married with 2 small children who wanted to learn how to snowboard. From Massachussetts, whare did I take them? Pats Peak. Small, wonderfull for families, quality value. Customer service that I have not seen at any other New Hampshire ski area. And I have skied all of them. I will now re-live Pats Peak, and learn something new with my children, and as we grow, move on, to make room for the next generation to be able to experience Pats Peak at the same uncrowded atmosphere that three generations of my family has experienced. Fantastic place to grow up.
