Reviews for Wachusett Mountain Ski Area
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
The lesson I paid for was abusive. None of instructors were excited to go out with me. They “hot potatoed” me to the Asian instructor, who despite everything I tried was difficult to understand. I was nice at first but then realized that the smiling was mistaken for agreement and the man wasn’t listening to me AT ALL. They wouldn’t listen to me to assess my skill level. Spent 25 minutes on the bunny slope proving to them I had had a few lessons previously. Just a waste. The lessons are for babysitting children. Send your kids if you want to hit the slopes solo. Not for adults seriously trying to improve. Avoid if you can. Big regret wasting the couple days I had in the area at this place. ... Full Review
A great place to spend the winter season... Full Review
Good skiing. Lodge empties out between 2-4.... Full Review
Easy to access all facilities especially from one lift to another. Sometimes crowded but trails connect well so one can find less crowded area. Go outside when lodge is full & vice versa.... Full Review

I grew up skiing this mountain and it is the jam. I went night skiing every friday night and am full of fond memories. Also the baked potato, french fries and burgers are amazing. ... Full Review
Wachusett has changed in resent years. I am a beginner skier. Three years ago I visited with a friend who is a trained ski instruction. We had a wonderful day, the resort was run smoothly from parking to renting equipment.
This year we were not allowed to park although there were clearly spaces available, we had to park elsewhere. For the savings of $15 dollars we were denied a credit because we did not possess our ski passes from Shawnee Peak. The staff was rude from the time I got my boots till the time I left.

Went snowboarding on 12/30/2018. Was very little snow coverage. The mountain is mostly covered in ice and grass. Very little snow and there was none being made. ... Full Review
This was my first time skiing for the 2018-19 season. Conditions were great and there were no crowds due to the Patriots playing. The mountain was almost completely open and the $46 lift ticket was a good deal. Wachusetts is what it is. It's not the biggest mountain, but it was great for getting some runs in if live in central Mass and you don't want to drive two hours to get up to Vt or NH.... Full Review
Surprisingly great conditions considering the weather lately. The staff did a wonderful job keeping the trails in skiable shape. All packed snow. I didn't see any ice at all and the live entertainment and atmosphere at the restaurant was a lot of fun! ... Full Review
