Blue Hills: 20 minutes; 16.5 miles / Need to satisfy that ski jones? Take the T from Government Center and get your turn on pretty much in the city.
Wachusett: 1 hour; 50 miles / Sure, it’s probably a better spot for watching a Pats game than finding powder, but at least you can get a few runs in at halftime.
Loon Mountain: 2 hours, 10 minutes; 130 miles / The closest serious skiing to The Hub is up I-93 (don’t go when traffic is heavy) in New Hampshire. Loon’s mostly a place to bomb groomers, but the seven terrain parks and 425-foot-long superpipe are first-class.
