And this is a photo of the "main" hill, "Big Blue." Note you can see the top.
All this said, considering the "mountain" is 15 min out of a major metropolitan city (Boston), it is better than I would expect. I doubt any other major US city has a "mountain" that close to it.
Ah the Blue Hills is dreadfully small. I drive by it sometimes and don't even see anything resembling a mountain or hill for that matter. I always wished they'd turn it into an all park mountain since it's not good for anything else. Families can go to Nashoba which is not that far and although it's tiny is like twice the size of Blues Hills.
haha i have such a perfect hill for this thread.
its called "highlands of olympia" highlands being the funny part considering its a 200 foot garbage hill in the middle of flat wisconsin.
since its only 15 minutes away i used to work there as a snowboard instructor. last year they didnt hire me and hired a few kids that needed lessons themselves.
when i did work there they couldn't even afford to give me a few free passes for my friends
their "terrain park usually consists of a flat box or 2 and maybe a rusty flatdown rail if your lucky. usually there aren't any jumps because "jumps are too dangerous" but if there is one its almost shaped like a quarter pipe with a very flat landing. and people get hurt on it. (which is why they think jumps are too dangerous)
and lift tickets are still like $30
its the hill we love to hate because the owners there are so stupid it has potential to be a decent terrain park but they still refuse to let people set up a good park for free. (my friends and i have offered to actually build a park there for free)
