13 ski resorts ?? They count funny. Or maybe the operative word is 'resorts' and not areas.

I'm glad to have moved a couple towns away. Wasn't even anywhere to drive a private snowcat in town.... but I did enjoy grooming at Cranmore years ago.

Already going insane.

Key is to live in the outskirts of town far enough away that Uber, Lyft, grub hub, door dash, eats, taxi, delivery, etc. don go.

Still some secret spots exist! This is true everywhere.

I will say that year round recreation opportunities, variety, and areas per square mile are compelling.

Many ski areas per square mile as well.
4000' and 2K vert is easy to beat!

Big pic? pandemic life needs lots of room and access not by air travel for now....

Among other reasons for selling my house in N.Conway was that suddenly, the majority of my "neighbors" were short term rentals and the people were generally obnoxious. I got good money for it but then was in hot competition to get another house. Real estate sales are 50% higher than a year ago. Prices have shot up and many properties are selling for asking price or more within days or hours of being listed. There is no where that the people who work around here can afford to live.

There is only one ski area actually in N.Conway. The 3 others are between 10 and 30 miles away. Skiing is too expensive. Not just the tickets but the equipment and some of those people are wearing outfits that cost more than my car !!
