SPRINGFIELD, Mass., Dec. 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Albert Einstein once said that anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new. No matter what your age or athletic abilities, the slopes are beckoning in Western Massachusetts this new year as January ushers in “Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month.” In celebration, Explore Western Mass is offering snow enthusiasts exclusive packages for admission, lessons, accommodations, and après-ski experiences only in Western Mass.
Throughout the region, ski resorts are as common as the corner market offering picture postcard views that encompass Western Mass’s counties, including Berkshire, Hampshire, Hampden and Franklin and the Mohawk Trail. The area is not only filled with a breadth of outdoor adventure, but family-friendly attractions as well as sought-after luxury retreats.
While navigating the bunny slopes may result in a few minor falls, visitors can also expect fewer crowds along with excellent conditions, pristine powder, enviable terrain, competitive rates and a relaxing après-ski experience. In addition to downhill skiing, the environs of Western Massachusetts also offers prime conditions for snowboarding, snowshoeing and tubing as well as old-fashioned fun, from snowball fights to making snow angels.
“Western Mass is truly a year-round tourist destination. Known for our outdoor experiences, we wanted to create a campaign that attracts our visitors back during the shoulder season,” says Michele Goldberg, Vice President, Explore Western Mass. “Our slopes offer the excellence of our competitors at a fraction of the cost and without the crowds. We can’t wait to welcome visitors this snow season.”
