New England's best skiing is most notably in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.
But the Bay State has some legit skiing and snowboarding - albeit smaller, lower elevation
mountains with a shorter ski season. Still mass ski areas have efficient lifts
and excellent snow making to assure you quality turns in the winter. And the
convenience to Boston is a big benefit for those that want to squeeze in a day
or night skiing or riding but can't travel to the northern New England mountains.
In the Berkshires, there are some romantic ski inns for a Massachusetts’ ski and
stay weekend from Boston. Jiminy Peak’s country inn provides ski in ski
out lodging for
the weekend, you can walk to the lifts, the skier service and ski lessons.
Wachusett has a country inn a few miles from the slopes, and you can take a
train from Boston to Wachusett.
But for real destination skiing in New England, we suggest you drive north to
Hampshire and Maine for the weekend or a week.
