One of the many delights of living in Boston is how easy it is to enjoy a day out on the slopes, with numerous ski areas within a reasonable drive. While the region’s most in-demand slopes are farther out from the city—in other words, more in line with the best winter day trips from Boston—these ski spots offer well-groomed trails for all skill levels, plus terrain parks, lessons, and good base camp facilities. (Some have great snowboarding and awesome tubing and sledding, too.) When you’re back in the city, do après-ski in style at one of the best bars or best restaurants in Boston. Note: check opening hours as they may vary throughout the season.
