Summer Fun Series – Visit a New England Ski Resort for Unexpected Excitement!

Posted by on Jun 26, 2012 in Summer Fun Series


Welcome to the Downey Insurance Group’s Summer Fun Series!  This summer we thought it would be a blast to highlight some of the exciting summer destinations and activity’s that New England has to offer.


This week’s adventure: Visit a New England ski resort for summer fun! 


Most of us would not think of visiting a winter playground in the summer but most New England Ski resorts have a tremendous amount to offer for summer fun.  You can ride a zip line, take a gondola ride, swim, kayak, canoe, hike, mini-golf, rent ATVs, horseback ride, ride a luge track, take a tour on a Segway, and so much more!   If you think about it why wouldn’t they take advantage of the summer months in New England?   We have beautiful weather, clean crisp air, and some of the best views around!


Two of my favorite options would be Smugglers Notch in Smugglers Notch, VT and Sunday River in Newry, ME.  Smugglers Notch offers a water park and a skate park that is enjoyed by many kids visiting from all over New England and the world.  Sunday River has one of the most unique mining tours that leads to the world’s largest beryl crystal!  Every resort has its own unique feel and options for fun, a trait that applies to  everything New England making the north east one of the most interesting summer destinations.


As you can see New England Ski resorts have WAY more to offer than winter skiing.  Many have camping options on-site or nearby or visit a cozy bed and breakfast.   All of this makes for a very affordable vacation or weekend trip that also supports our local economy. has put
together a very comprehensive list of resorts here.


If you do visit and love it, let us know!  We would love to hear about it and know we inspired someone.  Happy summer from Downey Insurance Group!
