You’re invited! Please join us in celebrating the Festival of Lights, as we come together to share the joy of Hanukkah. It's a time for lighting the menorah, enjoying delicious traditional foods, and spending quality time with family and friends.

When: Sunday, December 10, 2023, from 9 am to 7 pm

Where: Wachusett Mountain Ski Area, Spruce Room (2nd Floor), 499 Mountain Rd, Princeton MA 01541

What's included: 2 meals (Lunch & Dinner), all snacks, all activities, and a lift ticket for the skier.

This year, we’re taking the celebration to another level – we’re creating an all-day family retreat! That’s just like our family camp but without the hassle of sleeping elsewhere. During the day, you will be:

  • Skiing if you ski on Mount Wachusett
  • Creating various arts & crafts (different difficulty projects for children and adults)
  • Participating in various Jewish discussions, especially on the topic of antisemitism
  • Welcoming the invited entertainment
  • And much, much more

For indoor activities, we will have a lovely spacious room with cathedral ceilings and a fireplace. Our space is fully accessible. The building has an elevator, and the Spruce Suite we're using has it's own, fully accessible restroom.

There will be two types of tickets: one for skiers and one for no skiers. The skier’s ticket included a 4-hour lift ticket. These 4 hours can be taken at any time during the day. You may start anytime, but once you start skiing, the ticket will be valid for 4 hours. Please note: the rentals and the extended day (8 hour-day) are extra and will be offered at a discounted rate during the reservation process. Please also note that there is no breakdown for adults and children tickets; the cost is the same as long as they choose a type for skiers and no skiers. Non-skiers’ children under three years old do not need a ticket. Other Adults and Children do need a ticket.

The celebration will occur on Sunday, December 10, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. You may come at any time you want during these hours to start your fun. We will have helping teens, so it’s possible to leave a child (age at least 4.5) for a few hours with us and go skiing.

So, what are you waiting for? Register now! Remember, both children and adults need tickets.
