Overall

3.4

A small mountain with two main peaks known as an awesome place for Bostonians to learn to ski or snowboard. With 3 high-speed quads, lines move quick, and night skiing covers the entire resort so there's a good scene most winter nights. Take the train from Boston and there's a free shuttle to the resort.

I imagine this place is ok midweek not during a school vacation. Otherwise it gets overrun with wild kids who's parents seemingly drop them off there to wreak havoc without any supervision.... More

A family friendly beginner to intermediate resort very accessible from Boston in under an hour. Primarily gentle cruising groomed trails that the whole family of mixed ability can enjoy. However, the resort is small and can get crowded on the weekends and doesn't get much snow. Also advanced and expert skiers will be bored out of their minds.... More
