Did you know you can take the Commuter Rail to Wachusett Mountain for a day (or night) of skiing?
On weekends, beginning November 24, the MBTA will run special trains on the Fitchburg Line that are equipped with ski and snowboard racks.
Wachusett Mountain also provides a free shuttle from the station to the slopes for designated trains.
The ski train service generally runs until mid-March.
During ski season, the morning shuttle to the slopes leaves Wachusett Station at 10:15 AM, just after the arrival of the 8:35 AM train from Boston.
Catch the shuttle back to the station at 5:15 PM and board the 6:10 PM train back to Boston.
You’ll need to arrange your own transportation if you miss the shuttles or would like to take a different train. (Taxis and ridesharing services are available.)
