  • 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.

  • Ski Haus
    Since 1965, the family-run Ski Haus has kept customers coming back by adhering to the family motto: “Make sure we keep a fun environment and give everybody a fair deal. They get a ton of stuff for their money and we stay in business for a long time." Patrons can still expect the same low prices and see the same friendly staffers’ faces year after year while shopping for winter gear. Racks stocked with apparel by brands such as The North Face and Marmot, skis and snowboards by brands such as Atomic and K2, and a team of skilled technicians have earned Ski Haus accolades from Ski magazine, SnowSports Industries America, and New England Winter Sports Representatives, Inc. During tune-ups, technicians polish skis, stone-grind ski edges, apply hot wax, and repair bases damaged by treacherous slopes and sharp snowman noses.

  • Magic Mountain Ski Resort
    Swiss ski instructor Hans Thorner founded Magic Mountain Ski Resort in 1960 and it has been a staple of the skiing community in Southern Vermont ever since. More than 40 trails snake down the mountain, which checks in at a 45 degrees slope at the very top. But inexperienced skiers needn't fear: the resort features classic beginner and intermediate trails that are ideal for learning. A centralized lift system and lodge make meeting up and getting around a cinch, and Black Line Tavern makes celebrating successful days on the slopes just as convenient. The popular hangout also overlooks the entire mountain, so visitors should be able to easily spot groups of yetis sneaking down to make their nightly snow angels.

  • Ski & Snowboard Expo
    Every year just before ski season opens, the Ski & Snowboard Expo gathers representatives from the sport’s foremost gear manufacturers and destinations under one roof for deep discounts and an unveiling of the latest models. Visitors can slalom from booth to booth, where they’ll be able to check out shiny new equipment by Rossignol, Marker & Völkl, take advantage of season-pass discounts from resorts across the country and the Northeast, or practice their shadow puppetry while wearing gloves by Marker. Meanwhile, interactive exhibits invite audience participation, and live demonstrations aim to wow onlookers. Now in its 34th year, the 2015 Expo also includes a massive sale of East Coast Alpine equipment & clothing and a beer garden brimming with beer from Long Trail Brewing Co. Guests will regale with acrobatic antics during the Skyriders! Trampoline Show, and the Wachusett Mountains Kids Snowpark and Learning Center where youngsters can get ready for the winter without standing in front of an open freezer for days on end.
