Staff is friendly and prices are decent. Don't come here if your an expert, you will be disappointed. There are no trails just two little hills. Place... More

I took my 10 yr old grandson tubing yesterday. We were there 1.5 hrs and only had time to tube down the hill 5 times because it was soooooo crowded. This was our mistake because it was a holiday weekend. The warm weather also effected the speed of our tubes. Many people tubing barely made it halfway down the hill... More

Went with two children 6yrs and 8yrs. We went on News Years Eve Day. First of all, we waited in line inside the lodge for tickets only to be told tickets for tubing are sold outside. Next we wait again only to be told we have to wait another 15 min. because sold out. Finally we get the tickets, walk... More

There is fun for the whole family here, tubing, snow boarding and skiing. This is the last of the many small ski areas remaining in Worcester County, a real gem. Very friendly local staff. Lots of great restaurants nearby. Easy access from I290 and Mass Pike.

Let's be honest - great skiing in Shrewsbury, MA is not possible so I caveat my review by saying that I didn't really think we were going to love it (used to skiing on much bigger mountains further north). But I took my kids there for after school ski lessons thinking that it would just be good to get them... More

Initially a great place for toddlers/preschoolers to learn to ski, but then they changed the rules and no longer allow parents to help the children on the magic carpet (even with a lift ticket). Instructors and staff at front are mostly very young and have not been taught customer services skills.

We live in town and our children very much enjoy Ski Ward - they learned to ski and board there. All the instructors are very good with kids and our kids feel safe there. It's nice that parents can hang out and have a glass of wine at "Masspen" -it's a little pricey :-) We were disappointed this year to... More
