  • 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.

  • Nashoba Valley Ski Area
    When Nashoba Valley Ski opened in 1964, its lack of modern equipment meant that most of the time guests just had to hope for a good snowfall. In the decades since, however, the resort has gained mastery over the winter landscape. Snow-blowers spray their glittery clouds onto 17 trails ranging from beginner to expert, where skiers and snowboarders carve around sharp turns, navigate shaded glades, and look for fresh tracks left by wild Thoreaus. Four high-speed lifts run from the lodge and restaurant to the top of these slopes, and provide easy access to the mountain's two terrain parks. Suited to riders of varying experience levels, both parks encourage air-catching with features such as large boxes and rails. Recognizing that not all visitors enjoy strapping boards to their feet, Nashoba Valley Ski offers another kind of winter-time fun: a tubing park spread across 18 grooved lanes and serviced by four tow lifts.

The club’s seasoned travel experts plan each detail, freeing travelers from the hassle of booking accommodations or figuring out if a country only accepts secrets as currency.

  • Cranmore Mountain
    Normally when you plan a family vacation, you have to choose between the great outdoors and a great amusement park. But at Cranmore Mountain, you enjoy both. Because this family-friendly park is built around the 1,200-foot incline of its namesake peak, most of its thrilling summer activities double as sightseeing tours. On the mountain coaster, for instance, pairs control the speed of their two-person car on a 3,700-foot track that snakes through the forested landscape. Chairlift rides give groups views of Cranmore, Mount Washington, and the North Conway hillside, and ropes courses get climbers up into the trees and off the ground, where there's nothing to see but the same few million bugs. Come winter, the park transforms into a ski resort with dozens of trails of varying degrees of difficulty. At any time of year, visitors can enjoy the full-service facilities, including multiple restaurants and the luxurious Kearsarge Brook condominiums.
