A:After a fresh dumping of snow, just about any wooded path in the Northeast will suffice for me, but I’m assuming that you’re talking about groomed trail networks. While the highest-quality trails are the Kingdom Trails in the Northeast Kingdom of northern Vermont and the Jackson cross-country area near North Conway in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, those aren’t my favorites. That title goes to these three resorts, all of which have unique personalities that make them quirky and inviting. All of the trail systems listed below are equipped for both skate and classic skis, so no matter how you move, you can find a place there.

Sewall Woods Trails, New Hampshire
Catamount Outdoor Family Center, Vermont
Mount Van Hoevenberg, New York
