We recently went white water rafting. Great thing to do in October. The weather was nice, the water wasn't too cold, and the colors were very pretty. We turned out to be the only two people rafting that day, so we had a lot of fun with our guide. Our pictures proved it! Would highly recommend any time of the... More

We have ziplined 3 times over the past 4 years every time great! This summer we decided to do the white water rafting, it was awesome! The guides were fantastic. We have two teenage kids and it's very family friendly. All the staff from the zipline to the mountain coaster are wonderful! We can't wait to ski there this winter.

The mountains are very for beginners, but a little too small for experts. The food is expensive like all ski resorts.

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.

Thank Joseph N
