Skied here last week and had a great time. Nice lodge with big windows looking at hill. Snow was hard pack which was expected. Great cruisers to carve some turns. Varied terrain from steep headwalls to gentle rollers. No lift lines on a Saturday was amazing. Definitely worth the trip.

A wonderful small family friendly ski mountain. No lines and friendly staff make for a great family ski day. Totally manageable with young and new skiers.

Fun and reasonably priced. However, some of the beginners trails were not beginners at all! Not cool. I would not recommend for kids starting out. The bunny slope is fine but past that I would call the green ones way past intermediate.

I love this mountain! People are incredibly friendly. The snow is very well-maintained. The place isn't crowded, even on holiday weekends. I've experienced lessons with several instructors, another positive experience. My only complaint is the very limited trail markers. If you're not familiar with the trails and not actually carrying a trail map, you may end up guessing wrong. Folks... More

Berkshire East is a small mountain that skis big. It's about 1,000 vertical feet, but has a ton of terrain and some very challenging steeps as well. In a good season with decent natural snow there are a lot of glades too. Family owned and operated, friendly vibe and on the weekend so much better than going up North and... More

I was up on the mountain today for a little mid-week solo skiing in perfect early winter conditions (can't get much earlier in the winter, because today was the first day of winter). What made today's experience so nice was the excellent care provided by the equipment rental team. This was only my second time on skis in 35 years,... More

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

On 10/1/16 a few friends and I went to berkshire east mountain resort to try white water rafting on Deerfield river. We were all 1st timers. Our guides name was Max and he gave us the most amazing experience that we could have asked for. He was knowledgeable, personable, and made us feel safe while having a blast! All of... 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.
