There are two kinds of people: those who ski and those who snowboard. And in Massachusetts, there’s plenty going on for both kinds.

Love a good cardio workout and beautiful scenery? Head west and try Canterbury Farm Cross Country Ski Area’s 22 kilometers of cross-country skiing on groomed and tracked trails. Prefer downhill action? Wachusett Mountain Ski Area in Central Massachusetts features the highest mountain in Massachusetts east of the Connecticut River. Avid snowboarder? Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort is the largest ski and snowboard resort in Southern New England and Nashoba Valley Ski Area is just 30 minutes from Boston. For real-time ski conditions, visit our ski local page.
