I love this little jem of ski area, if you love old school, you don't want to skip by this place. It is about an hour and half from most Boston locations, and it is a world away. Nice little warming hut, and you can even bring a picnic lunch to enjoy!

This is my favorite place to cross country ski as a day trip from Boston. Most of the trails are nicely groomed so the park is well suited for skate and classic skiers. With classic skis you can also explore some of the snowshoeing trails, which are nearly always untouched, to play in fresh powder. A day pass is reasonably... More

I have been to Windblown twice now, once March 2015 & once this past weekend (February 6, 2016). Many of the trails we've chosen seemed fairly challenging for an intermediate skier such as myself as I felt I was 'hiking' uphill a lot. We chose to start on the outer trail which begins as long gentle downhill slope, so you... More

It is an OK place, a bit too much logging for my taste if you are looking to get out too enjoy nature.

I arrived on a Sunday afternoon during New Hampshire vacation week. The parking lot is spread over multiple levels. We parked at the top with the car on a 30 degree angle which made getting out challenging. It was cold and windy and snowing lightly. I ski the beginner trails only so I think a better skier would have a... More

great family activity when lots of options are not available in winter. Trails range in difficulty and there are plenty to choose from. Generally well groomed. Tails blazes and maps are easy to follow. Some of the easier trails can get a little overpopulated on a nice weekend.. Rentals are available. There is a snack area and picnic area. We... More
