Pollard Brook in November

I am gifting a week to some friends and they are curious about heading to Pollard Brook in the first week of November.

Is that considered off season?
Will the stores and restaurants in the area be open?
Is that too early in the year for the ski resorts to be operational?

Is there anything else (positive or negative) that would be good to know before making plans to visit central NH at that time of the year.

Thanks in advance for your help.

You may consider it off season.

IIRC, even last year, which was a good snow year, Ski Resorts didn't open until Thanksgiving or later. Most were caught flat-footed by the early, good snow.

Stores and restaurants should be open. So will the Kanc.

Should be good hiking throughout the area.

Color will be past peak.

If your friends are physically active, they should be able to find things to do.

BTW, remind them to avoid the "sales pitch" at all costs.

Yes, I would consider November very off season. Past folliage - too early for skiing. It typically is on the colder side of things also. If they are ok just laying back for a week - then the resort is nice for that. But, if they like to "do" then they might be a bit bored. They are about 1/2 hour drive to North Conway which will give them a bit more (lot of shopping).
