Nashoba Valley Tubing Park (Winter) – Westford, MA

Nashoba Valley has more than just the ski area – a small hill great for a quick night out or to learn to ski.  This is a well maintained and really fun place to take the family for a few hours.  They have extensive snowmaking so as long as there has been enough cold weather they should be open and ready for you to go tubing.  They have several lanes running parallel to each other and a rope tow to take you up the hill so you don’t have to walk up after your run.
