Join the Friends of the Blue Hills and the Blue Hills Ski Area for an evening of winter fun at Winter Fest!

Come for a night hike or get your exercise on the slopes downhill skiing. Whether or not you choose the outdoor activities, there is plenty of inside fun too: you can tap your feet to the spirited Irish tunes of Songs for Ceilidh, taste chili from some of the best local restaurants, entertain the kids with crafts, and warm up in front of a blazing fire while enjoying the company of old and new friends.

Blue Hills Ski Area will be offering discounted ski tickets for the night. If you are planning to ski, print the homepage of our website or the FBH Facebook page and bring it to the event.
