Ski Across New England

Powder Packed Adventures Await You

New England is known for its beautiful landscape of forests, rolling greenery, and serene mountain ranges. It’s no surprise to anyone that this ocean-side area gets its fair share of snow during the winter months, but it’s just that fact that makes New England a top winter resort destination for people all over the country. We’ve gathered for you a list of the top 3 ski resorts in the area.

1. Wachusett Mountain Resort

If you’re looking to venture to Massachusetts, the seat of New England, look no further than Wachusett Mountain Resort. This resort, located in Princeton, MA, is home to the highest mountain in Massachusetts east of the Connecticut River.  They have premium snowmaking and grooming, offer ski and snowboard lessons, night skiing for those who are looking for extra adventure, and even have top racing coaches come by to give lessons. Those who don’t ski will still enjoy the area, as the resort is home to the only known Old Growth Forest around, and the Boston skyline can be seen from the resorts highest peak.
