Resort Guide 2018: East #20
“Wachusett is one of the few small training mountains remaining. What the slope lacks in terrain is more than compensated for by the excellent instruction and value, and has a really diverse patronage.” - SKI Magazine Readers
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.
