Nobscot Hill Ski Area
Sudbury, Massachusetts
Nobscot Hill Ski Area location map Overview
Located near Framingham, MA, Nobscot Hill is perhaps best known for its fire tower and boy scout reservation.

According to NELSAP, The Nobscot Scout Reservation cleared a ski slope circa 1963 and planned to install a rope tow. There is no evidence that lift-served skiing ever ended up happening, however.

A portion of the planned ski slope is still apparently visible.
