Wachusett Mountain is an alpine ski area in the northeastern United States, located on Mount Wachusett, in the towns of Princeton and Westminster, Worcester County, Massachusetts. Wachusett Mountain appeals mostly to skiers from Boston and Worcester, because it provides a weekend shuttle service to and from a MBTA commuter stop in nearby Fitchburg. Wachusett Mountain has 100% snow-making capacity, and also has night-skiing on most of its trails. The first ski trails were cut into Mount Wachusett by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1934 and 1937.[2] Those trails were called Pine Hill Trail and Balance Rock. Today skiers can still ski down the upper and lower half of Balance rock. The middle section closed in the 1980s. During World War II, the 10th Mountain Division trained at Wachusett. There is now a plaque at the summit commemorating this. The first lifts installed were a T-bar in 1960 (the Oxbow T-Bar) and in 1962 (the West T-Bar). 3,800 feet (1,160 m). More on Wikipedia…
