The story that started it all...

Hi All,
During this past February vacation, my husband, myself and our three daughters went to Italy. My oldest daughter is a sophomore at Wachusett and wore her sweatshirt each and every day. One evening we were walking near the Ponte Vecchio bridge in Florence when this group of teens spotted her sweatshirt and all broke into the "Waa Waa Wachusett" song. So here we all were miles from home in a foreign land and about 25 of us were all singing the "Waa Waa Wachusett" song. It brought us all together for a couple of moments and we just wanted to let you know that you shouldn't change your jingle. It's known even in Italy!!

We are novice skiers who absolutely love skiing at Wachusett. It is a family friendly mountain with THE BEST chair lifts in all of New England. (we've had some scary experiences at other mountains). We are very fortunate to have such a great place so close to home. Thank you and your brothers for the wonderful job you do.


Sincerely, Lori, Dick, Kelleigh, Shannon and Corie Welch Holden, MA

 

 

Here's what our favorite world traveler customer had to say about the season at Wachusett:
(see Phil's pic from Ireland above)

"This year, your snow making/grooming crew deserves the Nobel Prize for Ski Trail Maintenance and General Miracle Work...Several other times this season your people have come up with snow seemingly out of nowhere to rescue what looked like the end of the season...I'd say around 99% of the people I've chatted with are amazed at the job you guys have done. We have all been to other resorts over the winter and seen places where they seem to have given up in the face of the rain, warm weather, and quick freezes. But in my four years of snowboarding, I've come to trust Wachusett to come up with some magic… It really is amazing, what your guys have done this year. They ought to be proud of themselves, and I hope you are proud of them.

So anyway, thanks to all of you again--snowboarding has become a huge part of my life, thanks to the good folks at Wachusett. Looking forward to next season already..." Phil C.
