Great Tubing Experience!

I went tubing here multiple times with friends, church groups, family, etc. and it always lived up to expectations. It was always a great time!

I took my two son's last month during the weekday to get some ski time in. Both of kids have taken a lesson and I was told they didn't anymore lessons at that time. My youngest son couldn't understand how to do the snow plow or pizza as they call it now. After the first two runs I could see... More

Great beginner ski hill with all sorts of ground lifts and 1 chair plus snow tubing. Rental area very small and tight when crowded. Came here on a Sunday and it was packed. 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

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
