Wachusett Mountain is a small family oriented mountain located just one hour from Boston. It is the largest night skiing area in the east, making it perfect for Bostonians wanting to ski after work. Wachusett Mountain also is the only ski resort in the U.S with public transportation to the resort. It is a small mountain with 26 trails and 1,000 vertical feet, but Wachusett Mountain Resort is an excellent place for beginner/intermediate skiers with a great ski/snowboarding school. There is 100% snowmaking coverage. Considering its location and size, Wachusett Mountain does an impressive job by being ranked #5 by Ski Magazine for family resort in the east in 2014.
