It goes without saying — New England is one of the premier places for skiing and snowboarding in the United States. And what better way to beat the arctic funk?

And there are several world-class ski resorts just a stone’s throw from Boston. Whether you’re a beginner or advanced, you’re sure to find a slope that fits your speed. Here are a few of our favorites across Massachusetts, Maine, Vermont and New Hampshire.


With 22 ski lifts reaching altitudes of 938 meters, Killington is one of the country’s very best ski resorts. Based in Vermont, the resort has several advanced slopes — like the infamous Devil’s Fiddle — and beginner slopes sprawled across six mountains.

Sunday River

This Maine-based resort is more affordable than Killington, and still boasts of 19 ski lifts reaching 707 m altitudes across 8 peaks. It’s no wonder that ski bums and beginners alike flock to Sunday River.


One of Vermont’s most beloved ski resorts is just a three-hour drive from Boston, and is nestled in one of the state’s most picturesque towns. While boasting of all the amenities of Killington and Sunday River, the town of Stowe itself is known for being quaint and picturesque, with plenty for non-skiers to do.

Okemo Mountain Resort

This is probably New England’s most highly ranked and awarded ski resort, for the quality of its on- and off-slope facilities. Visitors can expect high-quality snow, terrain parks, programs for the whole family, delicious dining and other entertainment.
