Uphill Policy & Passes

For the 2020-21 season, Wachusett is implementing an important new requirement in our Uphill Trail Use Policy.  An Uphill Pass will now be required for all participants. You will be required to wear the pass when you are using the mountain and you may be asked to show the pass by a Wachusett Mountain representative. This change is being implemented to help ensure the health and safety of all our guests. Snowmaking, grooming, and general maintenance of the trails carries a significant cost. Uphill users are still benefiting from this service even without using the chairlift, so we believe a nominal charge is fair.

Uphill passes are $25 if you have 20/21 season pass and $50 for non-season pass holders. A waiver will need to be signed acknowledging our uphill regulations. Uphill Passes must be purchased online and can be picked up at any Ticket Window during operation hours or at the Customer Service desk during the week 9:30am-5:30pm.

Revised Uphill Travel Guidelines For 2020-21
  • As soon as the lifts begin operation, which may sometimes occur as early as 20 minutes before the posted operating time without any advance notice – skinners and cross country skiers must cease uphill travel and transition to downhill skiing.
  • All uphill skiers shall go up looker’s left, skiers right. You must therefore have the equipment and skill necessary to head straight up the left side of the trail.
  • Zigzagging/switch‐backing across the trail should be avoided.
  • The snowmobiles use the RIGHT SIDE while traveling up and use the same route (left side looking downhill) on descent. They may vary from that so PLEASE be watching and listening for them.
  • Dogs must be on at least a 6’ leash at all times. Of course, it goes without saying that you must clean up after your dog. If this rule is not followed your dog will be told to stay home.
  • Wachusett has no obligation to allow skiers to use the ski trails prior to operation. This is a privilege that is not allowed at some resorts. Please do not take advantage of the generous policy. Persons that don’t follow rules could be ‘disinvited’ from the Ski Area.
