Not a lot of Bang for your Buck! I don't know where to start . I cant believe they charge admission for basically a craft fair! We stood in a long line to get in. We stood in a hour long line for BBQ, which did not serve beverages so we had to wait in another long line for drinks,... More

Hello creedboston and thank you for your feedback regarding AppleFest. It seems the beautiful weather & foliage last weekend gave everyone the same idea, as we had a large attendance at this year's event. We appreciate you taking the time to provide us with this valuable feedback and will take it into consideration as we plan next year's Fall festivals.... More

Great for beginners and locals. Having it so close has been pivotal in my development as a skier and I continue to ski it as an adult. My gripe is with the prices, of the food, the lift tickets, everything.

We all ski here. Lots snowboard, and then there is cross-country skiing. Offers food, lounge, hosts special events and weddings, parties, etc. Beautiful view! Can hike or drive to top in summer too!

This place is just as beautiful in the summer as it is in the winter, you can drive up to the state forest that is in Princeton , park your car and take different levels of trails. There is a small museum that will educate you on the history of the area and the wildlife that exists. There is a... More

It's on a lovely country road with stunning views. The place itself overlooks a small valley. The food is good, prices are midrange, the staff is exceptional.

Very easy to get to with lots of parking and shuttle busses. The skiing is good for a small mountain and the snow is well maintained. "Lots of snow guns" Decent lodge also. On the off season they hold a lot of activities too. The only drawback is that a number of skiers litter.

They did such an amazing job! We had a big work event for 180+ people. There was a breakfast, morning presentation in the Granite Room, mountain BBQ, the chair lift was open to explore the mountain, and we brought in games (inflatable sports games rented through a mountain vendor and our own yard games). The whole staff was amazing -... More

You cannot beat Wachusett Mountain Ski Area for value! The snowmaking is exceptional. The trails are challenging and longer than you would think for Worcester County! It really is a great spot to go for a day or even a few hours. The Lodge is comfortable, the bar is always hopping and the food at the Black Diamond restaurant is... More
