Feeder Hill Highlights: Wachusett Mountain

Feeder Hill Highlights: Wachusett Mountain, MA

This week, our Feed Hill Highlights series continues with our spotlight of Wachusett Mountain in Princeton, MA. Situated roughly an hour away from three sizable metropolises, this feeder hill is one of the closest ski areas to nearly 8 million urban dwelling skiers. Mix that fact with great terrain, a strong race scene, and a family friendly atmosphere and you'll quickly realize that Wachusett isn't just another East Coast feeder hill, it's prototypical of the term itself. Needless to say, we're extremely excited to present, "Feeder Hill Highlight: Wachusett." Enjoy!

Feeder Hill Highlights: Little Ski Hill

Feeder Hill Highlights: Little Ski Hill, ID

For the second installment of our Feeder Hill Highlights series, we metaphorically travel to McCall, Idaho, the home of Little Ski Hill. Measuring just 405' vertical, what this ski area lacks in height it more than maks up for in heart and service to the community. Between a vibrant after school program, multiple contest series, and a multimedia club for aspiring photographers and cinematographers, Little Ski Hill is way more than just a place to go up and down a hill. Don't take our word for it though, read all about it right here!
