Ski Train

Wachusett Mountain is already considered the most accessible ski area in the eastern USA, according to SKI Magazine. Now getting here from Boston is even easier! 

In conjunction with the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (Click here for schedule), skiers and snowboarders from Boston can take the commuter rail from Boston’s North Station to the new Wachusett Station.  During the Winter Season,  Wachusett services designated trains on Saturday & Sunday mornings with a COMPLIMENTARY Shuttle Bus Service.  Wednesday afternoon shuttles will start January 23rd in conjunction with our College Nights.
