Saturday, January 29, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm – St. Moritz Winter Wonderland

St. Moritz, you say?  Switzerland?  No, Quincy, Massachusetts.  This hiking field trip with The Friends of the Blue Hills is a real eye-opener.  The St. Moritz area of Quincy was once the home to a huge winter carnival where elite athletes would perform, and locals could recreate. Join a DCR Ranger and discover the interesting history of this winter wonderland and explore its remnants, including where a 60-foot long 100-feet high ski jump once stood, on an easy hike.  Meet on Saturday, January 29 at the Shea Rink parking lot at 651 Willard Street in Quincy for this 2 hour excursion into the past.  For more information, click on to Although we couldn’t find an image from St. Moritz, Quincy, below is a vintage shot of ski jumping  courtesy of
