Swain Resort, which sits on a mountain whose snow-capped peak soars 1,970 feet above sea level, sends skiers and snowboarders racing down 33 trails that snake down the mountainside. The longest trail is a mile long. Others include the tree-lined curving Black Diamond "Last Will" that turns into a blue run named "Testament."
This eclectic mix of trails draw skiers and snowboarders of all different skill levels. While veteran snow-athletes take off solo, newbies can start slow with assorted lessons. Gunny’s Gorge Tube Park lets families sled down snow-covered hills in inflatable tubes, instead of a piece of cardboard they found on the side of the road.
Visitors who prefer to enjoy the slopes from indoors have plenty of places to relax, including cozy local lodges and the Shawmut Grille, known for its gourmet burgers, homemade wing sauces and roaring fireplace.
