Here comes February vacation week and you need to get out of the house!  This is the perfect time to pack the family in the car and head to one of the many mountains close by.

We are very lucky to have some great ski areas in our backyard, less than two hours away.  One of my family's favorite places to ski is Wachusett Mountain. The conditions, especially this year, are great!

They have all kinds of trails for every level of skier too. If you are just beginning they have a great ski school and some gentle slopes, and for the experienced skier they have some challenging trails as well.

With Monday being a holiday we are going to pack up the family and head to Wachusett's and make the most of all the snow we've had this winter.

Don't forget to sign up for Wachusett Wednesday on, you could win free passes to ski at Wachusett Mountain.  See you on the slopes, or maybe in the lodge!
