Not only are ski area lodgings readily available in the fall, they're often more reasonably priced than rooms at New England's inns and hotels. Other advantages of basing yourselves at a ski area condo in the fall:
- Condos at the region's ski areas tend to be spacious and can sleep large groups, so they're a good option for families or for travelers who want to share lodging with another couple in order to cut costs.
- Having a kitchen available may save you money on dining out.
- Many ski area condos and suites have fireplaces--a romantic touch on a chilly fall evening!
- Ski areas frequently offer scenic chairlift rides in the fall: a great way to see the leaves!
- The leaves change earlier at higher elevations, so if you're planning to visit New England during the early part of the fall foliage season, you'll enhance your chances of seeing fall color.
- Unlike New England's B&Bs and inns, most ski resorts do not require minimum stays in the fall.
- Ski properties may host fun fall events or have special packages available in the fall that include extras; be sure to ask.
