Logo   Blue Hills Ski Area, Canton, Mass.
Closest ski and snowboard area to Boston, Blue Hills Ski Area offers convenience and fun close to the city.



Blue Hills Ski Area is convenient!

Going skiing is often an expedition: several hours' driving into the mountains, getting settled in a hotel, then a few days of great (but expensive) skiing and snowboarding.


It's fun, but it takes planning,

What if you just want to get out of the city, have fun skiing or snowboarding, and return home in a few hours? A ski break, not a ski expedition?

  Blue Hills Ski Area

If you live in or near Boston, Blue Hills Ski Area in Milton and Canton MA (map) is your goal.

This small (60-acre/24 hectare) but lively, fun ski area, in existence since the 1960s, has a vertical drop of 309 feet (94 meters), nine trails served by four ski lifts: a double chair lifts and several carpet and handle lifts. Snowmaking capacity is 80% of the terrain, and 50% of the trails are lit for night skiing.

Follow I-93 or I-95 south to Milton MA, turn north on MA Route 138 (Blue Hills Avenue) to the Blue Hills Reservation, and follow signs to the ski area.

If you're coming from west of Boston, Nashoba Valley Ski Area may be more convenient. More...
