Mount Sunapee Reviews & Tips (33)

Mid-March 2014 it's a spring skiing with soft bumps on poorly groomed terrains. Have your skis waxed or apply fluoride because sliding isn't smooth with sudden stop-and-go especially with artificial snow coating on top of wet loose granular snow.

The conditions were great last Thursday. Only warning I would have would be avoid signs that say un-groomed trails. I took the family on Stovepipe to Williamson Trail, which looked like a nice lazy long trails through the woods. "Warning Moguls ahead" would have the been more accurate and helpful sign. Still, we survived and the rest of the trails were near perfect.

Ski the right side of the mountain early. As the day progresses, move to the left. The easier and more basic terrain is on the right, and tired people crowd that side of the mountain in the afternoon.

Friday was a big pow day. Lots os great natural stuff to boost from. i loved the crowd and the atmosphere. When I went home I looked up season passes. The bummer is they are linked to Okemo. Okemo is a class resort, but I would not be able to go much. Perhaps a pass for just Mount Sunapee?

I really enjoy this place. Good variety and great snow quality, at a short drive from home (about 45 minutes from the Mass. border). Sunday was a picture perfect day. The only advice I have is to go early on the weekends. Also, as the day progress, and the mountain gets crowded, the Sunbowl Quad is a good short alternative other than the Sunapee Express.

What a beautiful day Sunday, February 9th was. Perfect conditions and a blue sky day. Glad I was there at the first lift turn though, as it got crazy crowded after 11:00. Does this mountain have a capacity limit? As I left at 2:00, I noticed they were busing in people from down at the beach? Advice: Get there early and ski hard. Leave early, too. It got too crazy to ski there. People overpopulated the hill. Glad to leave. Good morning, though...GO EARLY ON WEEKENDS!

Great snow here this past Saturday! Got up there around 8am so got a good parking spot in main lot. A few tips for weekend skiers: plan to eat either a very early lunch or very late lunch as the two base lodges and lodge at the summit cannot handle the amount of people in attendance. I've never seen lodges so busy! Stay to the left of the mountain on the slower lifts and you can ski with a lot less people and probably make the same# of runs!

We really enjoy Sunapee, along with the stellar views of the lake. The mountain offers up a lot of medium grade terrain which make for great cruising. The snowmaking and grooming has been wonderful since the 2008 CNL / Mueller lease took hold. My only gripe is that the high speed lift tends to put to many people on the hill. It was very congested Saturday to the point of being dangerous. We did witness 2 little hot shot racer girls collide at one point. As I said we love this mountain, but it is even better on a weekday when my golf & ski card gets me 40% off on the second ticket, and you can really let 'em rip without being afraid you're going to run someone over..

Snow and Mountain were awsome this past Saturday. My 6 year old nephew really enjoyed the learn to ski program. For his 2nd time ever on skis he did really well. Cudos to the instructors. Lift lines were a bit slow, but not horrible. My biggest complaint would be the lodges lack of seating.

Very icy on Sunday. Not really set up well for boarders with the wooden dividers leading onto the lifts. Also, some of the lifts are pretty fast for young kids getting on.

Awsome day this past Sunday. I think it was a day where it wasn't below 0. Clear blue sky, no wind, probably about high 20's. Brought my daughter who is a very cautious beginner skiier. Had to coach her down from top to get to a greeen. Trail was nice and wide and flat terrain. She had so much confidence by end of day! That makes mom happy. Except long lift lines.....overall good mountain to hit to get warmed up for first time out in the season!

The snow quality and the lifts are pretty solid. The main quad is great but the sun bowl quad seemed to stop a lot. Do NOT go on a day that you think will be busy. This place was a ZOO when I was up there at the end of a school vacation week and it wasn't pleasant. It took me 45 minutes to get from the parking lot to the mountain and get my ticket (I had to wait in two lines, one for the bus and the other humongous line for the ticket window) and I didn't wait less than 10 minutes for the lift all day with packed trails on the way down. It's a nice easy trip from Boston and a decent place to ski with lots of nice cruising runs but don't go there at a peak time!!!

Great glades for boarders - open and plentiful. When it snows here in Boston, Sunapee is my first choice! I like to get there by 7:30, grab breakfast in the lodge ($4 breakfast sandwiches) and get first run :)

Also wanted to comment on the speed traps on the way to the mountain... Be careful! We got pulled over (going 75) and saw 5 others get pulled over as well. This will definitely add $250 to your day

Kristen Intermediate Snowboarder
Sunapee is a fantastic mountain with beautiful views and I prefer it to others in the area, since there are a good number of trails that are long and winding versus fast and steep (there are these too for those that prefer that) The lines were a bit long on a Sunday, but we had gone earlier in the season President's weekend and it was surprisingly less busy. As far as Liftopia- wasn't worth the deal this time. Full price tickets are $74 and after service fees liftopia ticket was $70. Turns out that we had a car issue the morning of and had to change our ticket to Sunday (through the mountain, not liftopia) and we were charged $15 each to change the tickets. All in all we paid 84 for the day - definitely not worth it if you forsee that you might not be able to make it that day.

Very good experience at Sunapee on Sunday, February 24. No lift lines at all, great snow, and much better terrain than I was expecting. This was my first time at Sunapee and I will definitely go back. One of the best options within a 2 hour drive from Boston area!

The conditions were great, good coverage and very little ice. No lift lines but then we were there on a week day. I would never go there on a weekend or holiday due to the crowds. The was a long, slow line to exchange your liftopia receipt for an actual ticket. We bought our ticket from liftopia the night before and it took a long time for the staff to confirm it. Be prepared to spend a half hour waiting in line with other fuming skiers with liftopia receipts while the Mt Sunapee staff track down your ticket.

I went on a Sunday right after Nemo dumped two feet of snow. The conidtions were awesome. Unfortunately so was the size of the crowd. Lift lines were like the bad old days before high-speed quads. I waited 20 minutes in one line and was told the lines were even longerr elsewhere. Sunapee does not do a good job with large crowds. I found a short lift near the old lodge and stayed there in the afternoon. But I will avoid the mountatin if I think it's crowded in the future!

Great snow quality and coverage. Gorgeous views. This is a friendly mountain and it is great for families. If has good terrain but if you are looking for lots of double diamonds this is not your best bet.

It was in the 50s on Wednesday, with awful downpours Thursday a.m. Sunapee prides themselves on their grooming, and the conditions Friday were just awesome. One bad (huge, easy to see) ice patch on the Wing Ding trail, and everything else was fantastic. What a great day, again.

When facing the mountain on a crowded day go to the left hand side of the main quad, the lines are much shorter.

Very crowded with long lines on the weekend. The wait on the singles line is actually longer, first and only mountain I've ever been to where this has been the case. Great mix of snowplowing kids, just learning beginners and out of control teens on the"advanced" runs.

Love the mountain, but get there early. Back side is lots of fun to ski. Sunapee is definitely an intermediate mountain, but what is has is lots of fun. The terrain park and jump elements are the best I've seen in NE, but I have not seen them all. Plenty of deals out there if you search. I ski Sunapee a few times each season.

My most favorite mountain to Ski in New Hampshire. I had a great day Skiing with my daughter, who Snow Boards. I have Skied on the weekend and even with the crowd you never feel crowded. The lines move very fast. The grooming is second to none and the lodge is nice.

Visited Sunapee on "Magic Monday" 1/2/12 for half-priced tickets with my GF (who's a good skier). The 3-4 runs we did right before lunch were actually pretty great. It was mostly hard packed man-made snow that was well-groomed. Lines were reasonable. We took lunch around 12:40 and when we got back out, you could have used hockey skates to get down the hill. Pretty unforgiving stuff once it was all blown/skied off: we both took spills that felt like wiping out on hard concrete. Skiing in New England is going to suck until we get some real snow. Tip from previous experiences at Sunapee: Its a great place to go on a mid-week snow day. Its jammed on Saturdays. Just big enough for a "real mountain experience" and it's just under 2 hours away from Boston. A g

Overpriced, terrible staff, crowded. I got a brochure from McDonalds and read about the NH Sunday special, and so when we got tickets the lady was like, "I never heard of that." So we ended up paying an extra $15 or so. The left part of the mountain (going up the lift or looking at a map) is usually the least crowded. Most bumps are seeded, and this place is groomed to death.

We went on a Sunday and the place was WAY TO CROWDED. As I understand it kids ski free on Fridays and Sunday. Wish I knew that before we went. We were waiting in line for the sunbowl lift for over forty minutes at one point. They actually started hawking drinks and burritos to the mob of disgruntled skiers waiting in line. Its too bad because the trails themselves were awesome and not crowded at all. Bottle neck was def the lifts. Lodges were also a total riot scene. I would avoid this place like the plague on the weekends.

Great ski area in it's size class, much upgraded in the Ten years or so since being leased by Okemo. Check into the 1/2 day Sunday ticket deals for NH and maybe VT too residents with ID. Very decent snowmaking program. Other deals too check their website for Ladies days carload days etc. Good strong management team very dedicated to the customer satisfaction. Nice flat parking area nice views of the lake. Road in and out to I-89 a bit of a challenge. Many speed traps so be careful going down hill .. in your car.
