Attraction details
Owner description: Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort is the premier four season resort in Berkshire County, MA. A resort where ease of the guest experience is paramount, Jiminy Peak has a thoughtfully designed village center with all of its amenities conveniently located on the way to the lifts and a trail system where all trails funnel back to the base area. In addition, three lodges, two restaurants on property, and separate facilities for both its children’s and first-timer programs (each complete with their own rental shops) help guests make the most of their experience. In the winter, Jiminy Peak offers skiing and snowboarding on 45 trails accessed by 9 lifts, with 96% snowmaking coverage. With 21 lit trails, Jiminy Peak offers night skiing and snowboarding until 10pm. Jiminy Peak offers 4 and 8 hour passes that begin at the time of purchase in order to accommodate skiers arriving throughout the day.Summertime means Mountain Adventure at Jiminy Peak. Climb through the levels of Jiminy’s Aerial Adventure Park, a harnessed, self-guided experience that brings participants up into the canopy for an exhilarating physical and mental challenge as they navigate elements such as ziplines, tight ropes, suspended bridges and many others. Or for a completely different set of thrills, head to Mountain Adventure Park to weave through trees on the Alpine Slide, traverse the mountainside on the Mountain Coaster, reach for the sky on the Giant Swing or experience one of the many other attractions featured in the park. Also offered in the summer are hiking, lift-access downhill mountain biking, great dining options and retail locations.During the spring summer and fall months Jiminy Peak becomes a full conference resort using its multitude of spaces to host weddings, business conferences and corporate outings of all sizes, and has an on-site staff of experienced conference sales managers to help plan your perfect event.

Reviewed February 14, 2013

It is a much better resort for those beginning to ski or have been on the slopes for a few years. Range of easy to hard runs.

“Super Bowl weekend at Jiminy”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

One of our favorite mountains. Living in Saratoga, we have several options when it comes to skiing. Jiminy is more expensive that other places around, but we still go since it's about one hour away(Don't go through Troy. I rather go to 90 and take 43 all the way to Brodie) and it has all levels of challenge. This weekend, we took took begginers along - one snowboarder, one skier. It's worth considering the Lesson Package that includes lift ticket and equipment.
My favorite is twilight and we love the 10 PM closing!

For food, avoid the food court. Walk the extra 50 yds to the Tavern. It's family-friendly, stays open later than the food court and you can soothe your wounds with a drink or two!.

“Family Friendly Mountain”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Excellent ski area for beginners! Also, lots of fun, lots of trails for intermediate through expert skiers and snow boarders. Relatively new base area with clean, friendly facilities. Easy to get to from MA, CT, and much of NY.

“Summer Adventure Park”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

The playground was fantastic for young children. Long lines due to a very large group staying at the hotel and participating in activities. Many nice things to do and try but there are extra charges for things like the zipline and chair lift ride beyond your writst band for the adventure park.
