If you are home with the kids this February school vacation and want to ski or tube, don’t despair!  There are several family-friendly ski areas close to Boston that are making snow this vacation week!

The Blue Hills Ski area is a great place for a beginning skier, and they do have some trails and lifts open!  The $99 package for school vacation is a great way to ski all week.

The Nashoba Valley Ski area offers tubing and skiing, and they are 100% open!  Nashoba is located in Westford, MA, not far from Boston.  When visiting, keep in mind that the tubing park and the ski area has separate entrances and addresses.

Wachusett Mountain, located in Princeton, MA, is probably the most popular of the Massachusetts ski areas.  Check out the Wachusett Mountain calendar of events – there are loads of kid-friendly activities going on especially for school vacation week!

Those living North of Boston who don’t want to travel into New Hampshire can check out Bradford Mountain, in Haverhill, MA.  The mountain is also running 100% of their trails.
