Mountain resorts offer year-round fun for romance, families, and groups

Mountain resorts in New England offer different characters and activities in every season. And they are perfectly suited to everyone from couples on a romantic getaway to families with kids. Start planning your mountain vacation by picking a destination, like the Green Mountains of Vermont, the White Mountains of northern New Hampshire and western Maine, or the Berkshires of western Massachusetts.

Most mountain resorts are near areas for skiing, snowboarding and other snow sports like snowshoeing and sleigh rides. In summer and fall foliage months, the mountains burst with warm-weather activity: swimming, boating, hiking, fishing, and more. Some ski areas offer mountain coasters, chairlift rides, and ziplines. Mountain resorts live up to the "resort" appellation: plush furnishings, balconies with gorgeous views, hot tubs and fireplaces. AAA Four-Diamond service is available. Most New England mountain resorts are an easy drive from New York City and Boston.
