Bringing The Finest Cross Country Skiing

To Eastern Massachusetts

Catch The Spirit Of Winter At

Great Brook Farm State Park!

Located only 25 miles from downtown Boston, Great Brook Ski Touring Center provides over 10 miles of machine-groomed trails for cross country skiing from December 1 to March 31, snow conditions permitting.

The trails include all levels of difficulty and explore the beautiful landscape of farmland, forests, streams, and ponds at 1,000-acre Great Brook Farm State Park. Skiers can stride past fields and a working dairy farm on the easy Lantern Loop, venture through the quiet woods around Meadow Pond on the Pine Point Loop or test their strengths on the hills of the more difficult Woodchuck Trail. The machine grooming at Great Brook leads the way with a wide, packed surface consisting of two sets of ski tracks and a smooth skating lane.

If you have never cross country skied before, rest assured that Great Brook’s many easy trails are perfect for beginners. If you don’t have cross-country ski equipment, the ski touring center’s huge rental inventory has every size. And if you are too busy during the day, try night skiing by lantern light on Tuesday and Thursday evenings: it’s truly unique! Whether you come for family fun, the natural surroundings, or physical exercise, Great Brook has a beautiful trail groomed for you. Buy a ticket and set your skis in motion… you’ll be surprised where they can bring you.

Ski Conditions

Later Tuesday, 3/14: Unfortunately we will not be able to groom this snow due to the warm and wet conditions. With about 1.5" of rain having fallen before the snow, the ground is very wet and flooded at numerous point so grooming the snow is not possible. And snow depths in the woods are minimal in many locations. While Great Brook certainly has snow to enjoy for those who have their own skis, we will not be able to be open for business.But hopefully another time soon! ... See MoreSee Less
