They just don't get it! – This place had the nerve to charge me for a private lesson when the main lift was shut down because it was too windy. I'm a town resident who just finished putting my second son through ski school and they still wouldn't reschedule my son's private lesson. All I kept hearing was policy, policy, policy. Well, I now have a new policy. It simply reads; "never again will I or any of my family members pay another dime to Ski Ward"!
To this day, "Ward Hill," as it used to be known, remains a mecca for kids, especially those just learning how to ski. – The Lowdown
No surprise, Ski Ward's biggest draw is its ski school. With 120 instructors, the school enrolls between 2,000 to 2,500 skiers each week, mostly children. While it lacks the challenging trails that Wachusett offers skiers, that's to be expected with a vertical drop one-fifth the length of its central Massachusetts big brother. There is night skiing and all of the terrain is covered by snow-making
Another popular draw here is tubing. Because the tubing area regularly sold out on weekends in recent years, Ski Ward has added a lift to better accommodate the growing legions of young tubers. A 350-foot half-pipe and a grooming machine have also been put in.
