This past weekend, a buddy and I took our daughters rafting at Berkshire East and had a fantastic time. We were guided down the river by JD (aka the Bison), who was incredibly knowledgeable, super friendly, great with entertaining the kids, and really just a good all-around person. He made the trip truly a fun time. Fellow guides, Amy and... More

Living along the CT shore it's only about 2 hours away, the terrain is good for beginners, novice's, intermediate, and just enough expert trails to keep from getting bored

I'm not a skier but my kids are and they enjoy this local place. Fun runs and an affordable price. In the summer they have the best zip lines around. One goes from one mountain top to another and feels like you are flying a mile up. Worth the extra money for that one.

great mountain with some cool terrain. Very quiet mountain so perfect for beginners or for a quick day trip to the Berks. The rental skis were great quality and everyone at the resort was great. The Crazy Horse bar has good priced food and drinks.

Nice place to go skiing or just sit in the lodge and sip hot cocoa while watching the skiers. Easy to get to.

We were in the area for white water rafting and did not know how much cool, summertime activities they have at Berkshire East. We did some hiking and took a few runs down the new mountain coaster. The coaster was great. Set your own speed and make your own fun out of it. There's no chance of coming off the... More

We rode the new mountain coaster twice and could have done it all day if we had money to burn. This was a blast from top to bottom. It's long, smooth, fast and you feel like you're on a big roller coaster. What a great addition to the ski resort. If you love coasters, this is a must if you're... More

The zip lining was good. Guides made it fun and safe.Clear instructions. Bit disappointed that we had to walk down instead of being able to take the ski lift as advertised
