Ski Column


To remind veteran skiers and initiate novices the CRIMSON offers a guide to a few of the trails within striking distance of Cambridge. Many of these trails will be visited by the snow trains if and when winter comes; all the skiing centers may be reached by auto regardless of the amount of snow on the ground and the skier will find ample parking space at the foot of most of the trails. All trails in New Hampshire may be reached with ease by following Route Three from the Square to all points north.

Monadnock Region

About seventy miles from Cambridge Mount Monadnock has a two mile trail that will test the average skier. Four miles north is the Hurd Trail, the ideal trail for skiing in mixed company, you shouldn't fall here.


This New Hampshire town offers very good open slope skiing and practice slopes with a ski tow. Norwood Cox, Coop ski expert, is here to give instruction. Close to Cambridge, it can be reached either by auto or train.

Mount Greylock

This mountain in western Massachusetts has among its trails the well known Thunderbolt run, one of the fastest racing trails and a rival of the Ravine trail and Hell's Highway. A network of seven trails covers the mountain and skiing lasts into March on the northerly slopes.

Mount Mansfield

The longest skiing season in New England is at Mansfield in Stowe, Vermont. A new ski tow has been installed and open slopes have been cleared on the lower part of the mountain. Chin Clip, Smuggler's Notch, and Nose Dive trails are all expert runs.


Hills around Groton provide good open slopes within an hour's drive of Cambridge. The golf course and near-by slopes are apt to be crowded but the opportunity to try your turns on good conditions is the best within striking distance.
