Blue Hills Ski Area

Want to teach your little snow angel to ski, but don’t feel like trekking up north just for a lesson? Try hopping on the bunny slopes right in your own backyard. Despite the black-diamond trails and 300-plus foot drop, the Blue Hills Ski Area is actually perfect for beginners, too, with programs for all ages and levels, including private lessons. We’re also a fan of the equipment rentals, which will save you from dropping a fortune on gear the kids might grow out of in a year or two.
