Boston Skiing

Boston-area homes near Ski Areas

School vacation week in Massachusetts is fast approaching which means another opportunity to make memories with your family. For those who love to hit the ski slopes, or are considering a run or two this winter, there is no need to travel so far north when we have some great options so close to home. Here are 3 Boston-area homes near ski areas.

This month U.S. News & World Report ranked Boston the No. 8 best place to live in the United States.

Who knew  the Boston metro area had so many options when it came to skiing?
