Berkshire East Reviews & Tips (3)

I had a fantastic week at Berkshire East Ski Area. We were tubing on last Monday with temps of 2 degrees F Then Tuesday the temp went up to 50 with tons of rain. They closed the mountain to protect their base and it was a great idea. Wednesday morning was sunny and 25 with all of the lifts open after making snow during the night. They had outstanding conditions and Thursday had some of the best north east snow ever. They did such an outstanding job grooming the slopes. All of the staff was friendly and helpful too. Now for the best part NO LINES at all. I highly recommend the mountain but there is no cell service a plus for me but it might disappoint others. I see a few more weekend trips coming up for this year.

My family of 5 loves Berkshire East! We used to ski Mt. Snow but the crowds made us miserable. Berkshire has excellent trails, great snow making and virtually no lift lines. The family run mountain has zip lines and a wind turbine to reduce it's carbon footprint. I would encourage anyone heading to Vermont to try Berkshire which is 15 minutes off I-91 & about 20 minutes south of Mt. Snow. Tom O'Dea
