Blue Hills

Just recently acquired by the owners of Ragged Mountain, Blue Hills Ski Area has been upgraded and revamped to provide the best facilities possible. The Blue Hills Ski Area is relatively small which makes for a cozy atmosphere and secluded surroundings. Blue Hills is situated just a short distance from Boston in Canon, Mass. It is rated as one of the best places in the state to learn snowboarding.

Blue Hills has a summit elevation of 635 ft and a vertical drop of 309 ft. Its eight trails cater to the needs of beginner, intermediate and advanced skiers and they are easily accessed by four lifts. The trails are graded 25% beginner, 50% intermediate and 25% advanced. Snowboarders will find a simple terrain park to enjoy and skiers will be pleased to know that night skiing is available. Though the resort is still quite small there are plans to enlarge it somewhat in the future.

Blue Hills recently acquired a state-of-the-art snowmaking system which has enabled the resort to add a 90% snowmaking capability to the 60 inches of natural snowfall. This means you will always find the slopes well covered and ready to be used. Other improvements include a better night lighting system and a lift upgrade. The ski and snowboarding equipment available for rental has also been upgraded. You can be sure that all such improvements go a long way to providing the best vacation experience possible.

The resort is open for winter activities between December and March each year and offers great snowboarding and skiing instruction as well as a fantastic children’s program. The nearby lodging is comfortable and you will find that your accommodation is generally the best place to go for tasty food. Why not book now and enjoy the exclusivity of the Blue Hills Ski Area this winter? The choice is yours.
