A great area for festivals, and skiing! Highly recommend, but the mountain is not very tall so definitely a more beginner focused area.

We attended a wedding in not so great weather - they had room to move it all indoors and we had a great time - utilized three different areas - wedding, drinks, then reception dinner. All was handled well and the place was very nice.

We get season passes every year. Best to go during the week day or late night. Not worth it when school's are there for after school recreation. Go to the Columbus Day Swap.

I used to ski/snowboard on and off, never got beyond beginner’s level. I decided to seriously learn how to ski this winter and chose Wachusett as a ‘basecamp’ mainly due to good location from my house (Cambridge, MA). Now season is almost going toward the...More
