The great thing about Boston is it is just a short drive from tons of skiing and snowboarding options. Stay close by and head to Blue Hills Ski Area or Nashoba Valley Ski Area for some after work skiing. Nashoba also offers tubing! Take a day trip to Mount Sunapee or Crotched Mountain. Or plan a full weekend trip to world renowned ski resorts like Stowe Mountain Resort, Killington, or Sugarloaf. Read our full guide on the best skiing near Boston.
There are many things to do—both indoors and outdoors—during the Boston's long cold winter. Outdoor sports enthusiasts can ski and snowboard their way through the season, there are tons of local ice-skating rinks and sledding spots so everyone can enjoy playing outside in the snow. For Bostonians who would rather embrace more of an après ski scene, check out our best restaurants with fireplaces. For other ways to get cozy beyond the confines of your apartment, grab a steaming hot bowl of the best ramen in Boston or snuggle up at one of the best cocktail bars in town.
