Night skiing? As in “leaving the warm and comfy lodge to go roll around in the snow on a dark winter evening”?
You’d better believe it!
If you’re looking for a different way to enjoy your time on Wachusett Mountain, we’d like to welcome you to the Wachusett Night League, one of the most exciting ways to get your skiing fix this season.
What is the Night League?
Great question. Our Night League is an awesome way to get a little wild on the slopes. Get together a team of four to six friends and participate in multi-week, head-to-head racing events held on the Dual Giant Slalom NASTAR Course on our Challenger Trail.
When do races happen?
Now’s the perfect time to join! Races run Monday through Thursday throughout January and February, with top-ranking teams competing in the Good & Great Race Championship in March. The specific racing schedule will be determined closer to the start of the league season, with our kick-off event taking place on December 4th.
Who can participate?
Don’t be intimidated by the word “league”! This is a great program for both newbies and experienced shredders. Get together a team of four to six riders (including at least one female member per team) and get ready to race down the slopes!
If you don’t have a team but still want to enter, use our team matching form and we’ll get you squared away.
Should I try it?
We’re a little biased, but yes! Our Night Skiing league is one of the most popular in the United States, with riders of different ages (18+) and skill levels taking part. We do have some great prizes lined up for the winners, but we encourage everyone to give it a try—especially those of you who have never skied at night! Night-time skiing at Wachusett is something that you have to experience for yourself.
If you’re unfamiliar with night skiing, rest assured that it’s not as crazy as it sounds. All of our slopes are lighted with high-contrast lighting for full visibility, and all of the typical skiing safety precautions are observed. It’s fast, frantic, and tons of fun to shred under the stars.
Whether you’re interested in testing your skills through competition or just having fun with a few friends, our Night League was designed for you.
When can I sign up?
Right now! Registration is currently open, reserve your spot today.
