Cross-country skiing is more than just the only way to legally jaywalk in Canada; it’s also a rare family-friendly workout that welcomes you into the majesty of nature during the traditionally sedentary goose-eating months. Apple your cheeks with today’s deal: for $25, you get one day-pass, one cross-country ski lesson, equipment rental, and a cup of hot chocolate at Weston Ski Track (a $47 value), a winter-curious golf course about 20 minutes outside of Boston that uses manmade and naturally occurring snow to transform into a skiing wander-land.

Your day on the horizontal slopes will begin with a 75-minute beginner lesson in cross-country skiing technique from one of Weston’s experienced instructors. Once you and your fam have your ski legs, you’ll have the rest of the day to explore the ski track’s 15 kilometers of trails, including a two-kilometer lighted loop maintained with machine-made snow for night skiing. At the end of the day, simply return your rental equipment and collect a cup of hot chocolate at the snack bar.

Ice skating shouldn’t hold the monopoly on winter couples’ activities, and an invigorating ski excursion might be the perfect outing for a household endowed with a daylight-devouring number of Xbox games. The Weston Ski Track summers as a golf course, so if golf is truly a “good walk spoiled,” as Mark Twain famously complained, here’s your chance to rent a pair of skis and enjoy the outdoors no matter the time of year, or how dead an author you might be.

Weston Ski Track

In 1973, Mike Farny had a vision: to bring affordable outdoor recreation to the residents of metropolitan Boston. Opening the Charles River Canoe Service that year, Farny became an instrumental voice in efforts to clean up the river, encouraging people to canoe, kayak, and sweep up the dirt on the riverbanks. The next year, he persuaded the Leo J. Martin Golf Course to transform its greens and fairways into a sprawling landscape for cross-country skiing alongside the Charles, allowing the public to enjoy recreation on the river even when its waters had frozen. A 15-kilometer system of trails makes use of natural snowfall and offers skiers a chance to change up their routes. Even when flakes refuse to fall, a state-of-the-art artificial-snow system shoots powder over a 2.5-kilometer loop, which rests beneath lights to allow night skiing before guests return to the cozy snack shop for hot cocoa and a bite to eat.

Customer Reviews

The course is great and well maintained. There was quite the line for rental equipment but that is to be expected since it was a busy Saturday and the forecast for Sunday of that week had rain.
