Poor customer service; clueless staff; don't return messages; left hand doesn't know what the right is doing. Scheduled a private lesson and when we got there there was no instructor. Had to waste 10 minutes waiting while they paged someone. The actual instructor was good....More

Blue Hills is a tiny utopia to hide from grimy, industrial nature of its surrounding. That uphill trek is definitely not for the faint-hearted, but the views are worth the effort. Just a heads-up, there is nowhere to purchase drinks/food when you reach the top....More

Not a bad little ski area considering you can see Boston clearly from the other side of the mountain. This is a very small mountain. One double chair lift that is very old and slow, but again you can't expect something super high end for...More
