What if Boston had an urban slope that could be accessed by skiers and riders without leaving the city? It might sound like a (half) pipe dream, but if any area of the city could make it happen, it would be Seaport and its ability to reimagine how Bostonians play, work and connect.
Snowport, Seaport’s new Winter Village, is an interactive wonderland that features an ice skating rink, iceless curling and delicious distractions like freshly baked waffles. From now through February, this not-to-be-missed experience brings Boston winter fun to the next level. With a new Helly Hansen flagship store opening, the Seaport would be an ideal location for other purveyors of snowsports and outdoor gear.
The Seaport’s fusion of contemporary architecture and inspiring art installations made for the perfect backdrop to showcase some of this season’s best alpine looks. Yotel Boston’s Sky Lounge rooftop bar and open-air terrace, with its 270-degree panoramic views and craft cocktails, was the perfect stand-in location for an on-mountain ski lodge and après meeting place. Inspired by first-class airline travel, the hotel features 326 smartly designed cabins, a technology-driven guest experience, and clever social spaces for both co-working and socializing, including Komyuniti on the ground floor for light bites.
Like the Seaport, this season’s ski and snowboard apparel offers an exciting mix of options that do not disappoint. Head to the Ski Haus and get ready to gear up right while experiencing top-notch customer service.
