Chicopee's recent construction includes a state of the art rental facility that will allow it to serve schools and corporate groups more efficiently along with the newest recreational addition to the south side, a tube park.

Terrain
Chicopee is well known as a learning performance center. First-timers feel quite comfortable attempting skiing or snowboarding on the "foothills" of Chicopee. These include 4 green circle runs that are serviced by two magic carpets and a double chairlift. Whether you're 2 or 82 this is a superb area to make your first on-snow experience a memorable one.

Once you have mastered the green circles and are looking for a little more vertical, the North side has a lot to offer. If you want to stay close to the Chalet North, Mic Mac, Easy Rider, and Chicane are some fine choices. If you're looking for a change of scenery and want to see how the tubers are making out be sure to venture over to Chicopee's longest run, Front, which is located on the south side. Take a break and have a warm drink in the newly constructed log chalet.
