    Best spot around boston to earn your turns after work?

    Assuming Boston gets the usual southern storms that it has the last couple of years, I was hoping to find a few spots that I go to after work with a head lamp, hike up and get a few turns, Is there anything worth the effort within 45min of Boston?

    They recently put an assisted living place in there so I am not ssure how accessible the old trails are or even if they stilll exist. It may have grown over....

    The Blue Hills ski area is not friendly to earning your turns but when the cover is good, you can find a few good lines quite easily. The place is big and there are areas where the undergrowth is not that bad and the tree spacing is what you find in many "glades" in resorts up north.
    But it all boils down to cover.

    I lived in Waltham for a number of years and earned my turns there quite a bit! There is an old ski bump at Cat Rock (not sure if that's the real name) that is right on the Weston/Waltham line. In the woods you can see the remnants of a very old tow rope. that I would build a jump and then just ski down and hike up all day. A lot of kids sled there but some HS and college students have put up some decent size kickers and even a rail or two. The bigger challenge is not getting bitten or fall in dog poo because all of the dog walkers in the area go there.

    When I originally stated blue hills I didn't realize he only wanted BC. But I'll still echo this. In really good snow years, you can ski the rt 128 side!!
