Wachusett Mountain

“One of my faovirte place for early morning turns on the weekend or during the week before work.  Not much challenging terrain but you can get your legs going before the crowds invade the place.  If there's a powder day, go someplace else, they groom everything religiously here to maintain their base.  In short, get here early and ski a half day (you get $5 off if you return your ticket before...” --kelly001

Berkshire East

Berkshire East

“ I grew up at Berkshire East. My dad worked there, and we have an old picture of my grandfather skiing there. It’s family oriented, and was a big part of my high school experience (I raced there for years). The terrain is moderately good for a small ski area nestled in the Berkshires of Western Mass. The nickname Berkshire Ice should tell you a little about conditions, but when it snows, it...” --ctedesco

Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort

Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort

“ I live an hour away and really appreciate Jiminy.  For a small eastern area, it has a lot of variety: 3-4 legitimate steeps, a number of black/blue runs, and a bunch of easy groomers.    There's a resort/condo complex at the base that I ignore, but it does bring in the upscale "resort" experience.  There are benefits: Jiminy has a super-quick 6-pack to the top -- 1100'...” --tch

Catamount

Catamount

“ Catamount was the first lift-served skiing I did this year and proved to be a nice warmup.  I went early in January on a Monday and as a student my ticket ended up being $20.  It was money well spent.     Catamount is not huge, but has a reasonable variety of terrain.  It has some groomers with reasonably steep sections that invite speed and the bumped up and...” --MarcusBrody

Ski Ward

Ski Ward

“Last year I took my girlfriend to ski on a large area.  It was too much too fast for her, she was intimidated with the size of the mountain and got discouraged quick.  I took her to Ski Ward this year and she fell in love, it was just the right size for a beginner!  Ski Ward makes the most out of the terrain that they have.  The mogul field, halfpipe, skiier-x course, and terrain park were...” --EthanCarter

Ski Butternut

“ Great family mountain with fun Intermediate and adanced skiing. No true double diamonds either. The snowmaking here is excellent which really helped during this superwarm winter.   Lodges really need upgrading and more room. ” --stngr17

Nashoba Valley Ski Area

Nashoba Valley Ski Area

“A fun ski resort but not too much skiing.  The conditions were good almost all day, hardly any ice because it gets lots of sun, hard to say for New England.  Very Easy to get around the Mountain although the runs are quick and the lifts aren't too fast.  The terrain park is pretty nice if your into that.  Not too much diversity.  Most of the trails are very similar and...” --GotBlur

Bousquet Mountain

Bousquet Mountain

“I skied Bosquet often in the 90s as a teenager and have fond memories of the place.  It was by far the lowest priced skiing in the state and I imagine it's still that way today.  Their snow making and snow conditions would always be adequate compared to other nearby hills that would be icy and have bare spots.    If you live close by you owe it to yourself to spend a few...” --dukeryder

Blue Hills

Blue Hills

“I used to patrol at Blue Hills. It's a nice family hill. Dads & Moms bring their kids, but you get everybody else, college kids, young singles, professionals too. The Thayer Academy Team practices there. On a busy weekend, you have to park in the lot near the Blue Hill Reservation hiking trails, and it's a bit of a schlep, but not too bad. The chairlift is pretty slow, and the line can get...” --bosrocker51

“ It's a hill with some lifts. They overcharge and take advantage of anyone skiing there- if you call that skiing. ” --SilverLakeRR
