Mark from United States writes:

Excellent ski area. Lots to do on mountain and Bethel is the quintessential New England ski town. Not a lot of amusements but so much local culture that you really know where you are.
There is fantastic dining choices but you may need a car to reach the furthest.
There is a local bus service loops every 15 minutes and takes visitors from all over the mountain and downtown.
For a really relaxing weekend or vacation it’s a great place to visit.
Conditions at Sunday River exceed all else in the area as their award winning snowmaking and grooming is the best in the USA.
