Seven suggestions for a cozy ski and stay experience in New England:

Pats Peak, Henniker, New Hampshire

The lighted slope means you don’t have to come in out of the cold when the sun goes down. 710-foot vertical, 22 trails. 888-728-7732, 603-428-3245; patspeak.com

On the mountain you may meet instructor Phil Ryan, who helps Kate Bartlet run the unpretentious Henniker House, nestled on a Main Street corner in the village. “I want people to feel as though they’re coming to their favorite aunt’s house,” Kate says. 10 Ramsdell Rd., Henniker. 866-428-3198; hennikerhouse.com

King Pine, East Madison, New Hampshire

In addition to plenty of downhill trails, the mountain boasts cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and skating. 350-foot vertical, 17 trails. 800-373-3754, 603-367-8896; kingpine.com

Apres-ski, head down the mountain to Snowvillage Inn, which combines rustic accommodations and an idyllic view of Mount Washington with hearty country cooking. 136 Stewart Rd., Snowville. 603-447-2818; snowvillageinn.com

Mount Abram, greenwood/Locke Mills, Maine

Just down the road from bustling Sunday River, Mount Abram offers a slower-paced alternative for families who like their elbow room. A slew of intermediate slopes and the mountain’s tubing park (longest in Maine, with two trails) will keep your kids busy. 1,030-foot vertical, 44 trails. 207-875-5000; skimtabram.com

In the evening, head into Bethel and relax at The Chapman Inn. The breakfast there, prepared by chef/co-owner Fred Nolte, will leave you stoked for all the runs that await. 1 Mill Hill Rd., Bethel. 877-359-1498, 207-824-2657; chapmaninn.com

Ragged Mountain, Danbury, New Hampshire

While you’re enjoying the mountain’s more challenging trails, leave your children at one of New Hampshire’s best ski schools (complete with “magic carpet” lifts and a skiing moose mascot). 1,250-foot vertical, 55 trails. 603-768-3600; ragged-mt.com

Remember to bring your ski pass to The Maria Atwood Inn in Franklin for a 10-percent discount. It’s a little bit of a drive, but the specialty scones are worth the trip.
