Spring Skiing at Wachusett Mountain

Last weekend we visited Wachusett Mountain for some spring skiing. The weather couldn’t have fit the description any better, as it was around 55 degrees under blue skies. Wachusett is located only an hour from Boston, in Princeton, MA. While it is only half the distance of the closest mountains in New Hampshire, it still features skiing and conditions that are compete with those bigger mountains. Wachusett has a great balance of terrain, featuring many intermediate hills, but with a few expert trials and ample learning terrain. Additionally, nearly the whole mountain is available to ski under the lights.

Although the ski season may be winding down across New England, Wachusett has some exciting enhancement for the next ski season. Through investment in a new water pump system and snow making equipment, these new advancements will allow them to quadruple their snow making capabilities next season—and Wachusett was already regarded across New England for their excellent snow making.

We started our day off skiing Ralph’s run, located all the way over on lookers-right side of the mountain. After a couple runs, we migrated to the opposite side and really enjoyed skiing Conifer Connection. The scenic views from this trail are some of the best on the mountain, with beautiful views of Lake Wachusett and Mt. Monadnock on the horizon. The conditions were really good in the morning and throughout the day we probably made over 20 runs. On top of that, there were number of sports nutrition vendors with product samples and a band playing throughout the day. We ended up leaving with more protein and energy drinks than we could fit in our bags.

If you haven’t put the skis away yet, there may be a few more days to get some runs in at Wachuett—but if your ski season has come to an end you’ll have an exciting 2016/2017 to look forward to at Wachusett!
