Make memories with family and friends

Everyone who has skied or ridden has memories of outstanding experiences on the mountain. These memories last a lifetime and provide strong bonding experiences with family & friends. Make your annual traditions and other meaningful memories at Wachusett Mountain. Good times galore!



Get some fresh air

Spend time outside in the winter! Get your dose of Vitamin D without the supplements and soak up the sun while taking runs. Get a chance to appreciate nature from atop of the world (or soaring down over it) at Wachusett. It’s winter in New England – get out an enjoy it.  Skiing and snowboarding make shoveling worthwhile!



Positive healthy outlet

Blow off some steam while you get those endorphins surging and blood pumping as you zoom down the slopes. It’s hard to focus on anything else while finding your happy place on the mountain, so it offers its own unique and fulfilling type of meditation. And, the more you go, the better you will get and the longer your endurance will be. Energy creates energy, so get out there and start 2018 off right.

Stay in shape

Get fit while having fun. THAT isn’t something you hear everyday! Can’t get here during the day? Take an evening “run” instead of a morning jog! Skiing or snowboarding is way more fun than the gym. Not only will you be staying in shape from the demanding nature of this sport, but you’ll also develop muscles in areas you previously might not have used much before. Our advice? Build up your core strength. Snow sports use and create a ton of it.
