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;

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;

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;

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;

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;

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;

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;

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.
