I'll be in Boston from Jan 1 to 5th and looking to do a day trip at a nearby ski resort on the 2nd Jan (< 3 hour one way). A number of question:
1. Would there be decent amount of snow around that time of the year?
2. Mount Sunapee and Pats Peak seem to be decent in size, any other ski field suggestions?
3. Coach/public transport access would be preferred, though there's not much info available regarding transport options. Mount Sunapee mentioned rally bus, but the only bus slot shown available is on the 1st and 5th. Is there any other coach/transport alternatives? It seems that hiring a car would be the likely options, however not keen as I am not used to driving on the right side of the road (from Australia).
Any advice would be very much appreciated.
