Massachusetts has two distinct areas of lost ski areas.  Western areas tended to have more vertical, longer lifts, and were closer to the NYC market.  Eastern areas were small, mostly with just a few rope tows or T-bars, and served to introduce Bostonians (especially children) to the sport.  Many of these Eastern areas have rapidly grown in or have been developed.
