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

We visited the mountain twife this week, once to check out the Mountain Coaster and again today to ski. 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

2nd time ever to zip line. 3 yrs ago tried the mid zip. This time, I tried the valley jump. Husband doesn't like heights so I went solo. We were a group of 4, so it took less than 2 hours. Loved the x1 and x2 zips (longest) bec it went slower and I felt I dangled in the air... More

Berkshire East isn't the steepest, the biggest, the best well known, nor does it have the glamour and glitz of other mountains, which is ok, because this is a skier's mountain. There is barely ever a lift line (and there is a new chair coming on line this fall. The groomers know their craft as well as any anywhere else.... More

We skied here again this Saturday night. Condition were great, lots of corn snow and great coverage for this time of year. Since it is daylight savings time, they did not close the day trails until after 6:00pm. Love the new lodge! As for people that have written reviews and complained about the parking lot and trail signs, it is... More

Skied this area for 52 years and it gets better every year. New addition to the base lodge offers families the option of "brown bagging it" or being served in the new restaurant adjacent to the old base lodge. This family run ski area continues to make improvements every year by upgrading their snowmaking capability, improving configuration of trails, providing... More

Based on all the reviews here, we thought we found the place we'd return over and over. However, after our trip yesterday we won't be back. I knew going in it was an older mountain, which is fine with us, but it doesn't fully explain this place. There's no 5 minute drop off by the lodge, so everyone was getting... More
