Tucked away in central Massachusetts is a 2006-foot peak that dominates the surrounding country. Wachusett Mountain, as it is known, has been a landmark ever since the central highlands of Massachusetts were first settled. For more than 70 years the ski trails running from its summit have also been a landmark, beckoning skiers and snowboarders from most of the major cities and towns in the region. With night skiing until 10:00 p.m., Wachusett also beckons after dark.

Visitors to Wachusett find a highly polished, full-service, small resort, with lodging at the nearby Wachusett Village Inn and Conference Center, high-speed lifts, a thoroughly modern grooming fleet and snowmaking operation, and a full set of amenities.

One example of the latter is the Mountain Suites on the second floor of the recent base lodge addition. Designed to provide a comfortable and luxurious setting for special family gatherings, company meetings, or other important events, the suites are the equivalent of luxury sky boxes in big sports stadiums - only you get to look out at snow-covered slopes and forested hillsides instead of 50,000 people.
