Whether you are a novice or a pro, this Boston ski area has something for everyone. Although Massachusetts may not come to mind when you think about skiing, here are some reasons that will change that.
First, the location, Ski Bradford is a great example of a true Boston ski area and a place for families to gather and ski. It has a excellent set of instructors for the kids with only 5-6 per group. The instructors are excellent teachers and the place is fun and friendly. Another thing that makes Ski Bradford a great place for skiing is that it is excellent for novices. When you do not have the hassle of traveling to the mountains, the location is so convenient.
Another feature of Ski Bradford is that it is a day resort with night skiing that is focused on teaching how to ski. However, there is a variety of other terrain challenges for those who are not novices. The more skilled skiers or riders have options that are enjoyable for them as well.
There are 15 trails for skiers and riders no matter what level you are. There are eight black-diamond trails. There are four intermediate blue-square trails. And, there are three easy green –circle trails. The terrain park is the feature of the ski park and offers several things for the skiers such as down rails and small boxes for new skiers. It offers an A-frame at 24 feet, single barrel at 35 feet and a step down at 30 feet.
The costs are very affordable. For $65.00, a person gets a day package that includes rentals (skis, boots, poles or a snowboard), a lift ticket and a one-hour lesson.
