Recently updated (new) chairlift for 2014/2015 season serving the summit has definitely sped things up getting to the top of the mountain. I will agree that the signage that... read more

This mountain promoted st Patrick's day by giving you $2. off for every green article of clothing you wore while skiing or boarding. Great right !! Not if you were planning to celebrate the high Irish holiday in traditional fashion. The mountain was not selling ( or giving away) any beer ! An employee told me there is a package... More

We visited on a day my youngest had a race at the mountain. They had decent snow conditions but hadn't groomed much of the mountain. The race hill was shut down all day for the race and that is the real draw. Nice mtn ok lifts, lift on the far right is very slow. Good for beginners but a drag... More

Recently updated (new) chairlift for 2014/2015 season serving the summit has definitely sped things up getting to the top of the mountain. I will agree that the signage that people have complained about is justified to some extent. It's extremely easy for those of us that have basically grown up with the mountain do take it for granted that we... More

This was our fist time at Berkshire East, and it won't be our last. We had a wonderful time skiing with friends and seeing familiar faces. The mountain is approachable for kids. As a parent it is reassuring to know that your children won't get lost or hurt. Skiing for adults is great! There are plenty of steep and challenging... More

Berkshire is not a big mountain, but it's enough for me. Trails found well groomed and the price remains reasonable. Staff at the mountain always friendly and welcoming. Stay away from the rental shop if you need equipment. From my experience they simply don't assign enough workers to handle the rush. I waited nearly an hour and a half to... More

We are enjoying this ski season as the snow keeps coming! With a couple of lodges to enjoy, lots of lifts and a mountain to explore, this is a perfect small resort. Go when it's snowing and you'll ski right onto the lift! The folks working there are extremely nice and helpful about most anything. We have not had a... More

Berkshire East is a resort that has a nice little niche. It is perfect for those who don't want to spend a ton, don't want to deal with crowds and/or don't want to drive the extra hour and a half to 3 hours into Vermont. But there are tradeoffs. If you are looking for a great lodge, paved parking lot,... More

The coaster was a ton of fun, the day we went there was no line, staff was super friendly and we all had a blast. We returned again today to ski. My husband and I both haven't skied in years and...

Visited to ride the mountain coaster on its opening weekend. Not as crowded as we anticipated, staff was friendly, and the coaster-- it was unlike anything else we've ever experienced. Both adults and kids loved the ride, we did it 3 times, each time using less braking around the hairpin turns. Worth the trip, we will be back to bring... More
