Get to the Slopes From Boston via Ski Train

Chief Snow Junkie December 13, 2011 0

If you’ve ever been to Boston, then you know that the streets must have been designed by drunk morons. A short trip to nearby Wachusett Mountain can take half the day with Boston traffic  — unless you take the Ski Train which leaves from North Station and drops off at the commuter rail station. They even have a “ski car” to store your stuff.

Here’s the lowdown:

  • The weekend “ski train” service will leave North Station at 8:35 a.m. and arrive at the Fitchburg commuter rail station at 10:06 a.m.
  • Wachusett Mountain will pick up skiers and riders and shuttle directly to the mountain, approximately 20 minutes away.
  • Wachusett will then shuttle customers at 4:45 p.m. back to the Fitchburg station for a 5:35 p.m. departure back to Boston.
  • The season service runs from Dec. 10 through March 31.  Each train includes a designated “ski” car that will allow for easy storage of ski or snowboard equipment.
  • “Ski Train” fare – $7.75 one-way (subject to change)
