  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Aura Restaurant at Seaport Hotel
    Wrought of gentle curves, translucent skylight screens, and sleek, finished wood and marble, the dining room and bar at Aura Restaurant in the Seaport Hotel evokes the captain's quarters of a modern luxury yacht. Designed and executed by internationally trained chef Robert Tobin, the menus seasonally change. Entrees made in a European tradition combine international influences while holding true to the American aesthetic and love of all things flag shaped. Dinner might include the likes of a pork osso buco with spaetzle and chicory, littleneck clams with grapefruit and house tagliatelle, or the wild salmon, leaping up a stream of red-wine sauce and melted leeks. In 2003, Boston magazine singled out Aura on its Best of Boston list, citing in particular how “the plump lobsters come seared, with a subtly balanced, ever-so-tangy sesame-ginger broth.”

  • Thuro Skate & Snow
    Thuro Skate & Snow equips athletes with what they need to shred the elements, whether it be out on the slopes, on the streets, or in the ocean. The shop keeps its well-rounded inventory stocked with a bit of everything, including skateboard decks, surfboards, and ski and snowboarding gear from local manufacturers and well-known brands. No matter the sport, though, Thuro views riders and their safety as its number-one priority; so, products are always thoroughly tested before ever hitting the shelves. When boards or skis do get dinged up, or when equipment needs some nuts and bolts tightened, Thuro's professional staff provides tune-ups and repairs so riders never have to see their gear in a full-body cast.

  • 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. Come winter, the park transforms into a ski resort with trails and glades for all ability levels.
