Westford's home to one of the few ski areas in Eastern Massachusetts and that ski area turned 50 years old on Sunday.
Nashoba Valley Ski Area marked the anniversary of the day it first opened in 1964, continuing the celebrations throughout the 2013-14 winter season.
Today, the ski hill reports over 11,000 runs per hour on a normal day, with over 50 inches of annual snowfall, but that wasn't always the case.
"The early years were rough," said Nashoba Valley Ski Area spokesperson Pam Fletcher. "The first year, Nashoba was only open for 14 days, with one rope town, shovel packed slopes, and a humble one-story building with a gravel floor."
On Feb. 27, lift tickets will be only $2.50, the original prices in 1964.
