Full review

This is the closest real skiing/snowboarding to Boston. I went to Pats Peak on Martin Luther King day after they had just received 8 inches of fresh powder. The conditions were great and though the mountain is small, there was enough terrain to keep me entertained for a half day. If you're not taking children, all the small kids on runs can be a bit of an annoyance. All in all, it was a great experience.
