Tenney Mountain is one of New Hampshire's best kept secrets. The trails are classic New England trails with double fall lines and enough diverse terrain to keep the interest of intermediate and advanced skiers. Once you've skied Tenney, it's hard to go back to the over-crowded slopes of the regions more popular mountains. Today, most mountains have more uphill capacity than the skiable terrain can support. If you've ever spent a weekend at Loon, you know what I mean. Tenney is a rare exception with more downhill capacity than uphill. Even on weekends, lift lines rarely exceed 5 minutes and you often find yourself alone on the trails.
The lodge is comfortable and the food is reasonably prices for a ski area. The staff is cheerful and the ambassadors are friendly and heplful. Tenney reminds me of Bretton Woods 20 years ago, except that the terrain is more interesting and it's much easier to get to for those coming up I-93.
If you're looking for a family friendly mountain that's a great value, I would highly recommend giving Tenney a try.
