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.

“3 days in a winter wonderland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2010

The Country Inn was clean, comfortable and provided easy access to the mountain for my 3 girls. The weather was perfect. No wind and a steady light snowfall provided perfect skiing & boarding conditions. Every staff person we encountered was kind, courtious , knowlegable & respectful. The food at the John Harvard was excellent. My only complaint is parents who let their children run wild in the halls. In spite of this we had a great time!

“Jiminy Peak is great family vacation, excellent place to ski and stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2010

Skiing awesome family experience. Everyone from mom to youngest can make it to top of mountain regardless of level. From easy green to chalenging black diamonds fun for all. John Harvards excellent fare, make sure to reserve in advance. Couldn't get my desired dinner reservation on line so needed to call and was attended to efficiently.
Might want to remind staff to get condo unit warmed up if you arrive late. First night was freezing but time we got back from skiing next day/night all was toasty.
Friends of ours came up for day only. Great time had by all.

“Great for first time skier”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2010

The Mountain is beautiful! All of the grounds are well maintained and clean. For a first time adult skier, I was very pleased everything. I did sign up for Ski School and thought the instructor (Keith) did a great job! He explained not only the technical aspects of skiing, but the logic behind it. He did such a great job, I signed up for another lesson the next day and requested him again! Where he instilled the confidence in me to go to the top of the mountain! I could have only done it with him. He was there at every turn I made and when I fell, he was there to pick me up.

I would recommend this place to anyone who is new to skiing, or a good place to bring kids to learn to ski.

“short lines for summer/fall rides. Ignore previous review.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2009

In response to a previous review- I went on the first Sat in October and we waited on line for the Mountain Coaster no more than 5 mins (twice). There was no wait at all for the Alpine Slide. Mountain Coaster is only 1 of 4 of its kind in North America. If you don't apply the breaks at all on the way down- which we were assured if you are under 250 pounds is perfectly safe- it is one HELLUVA ride!
