Berkshire East isn't the steepest, the biggest, the best well known, nor does it have the glamour and glitz of other mountains, which is ok, because this is a skier's mountain. There is barely ever a lift line (and there is a new chair coming on line this fall. The groomers know their craft as well as any anywhere else. Never was there a day throughout the season where I couldn't find a trail to enjoy. There are steeps and bumps and glades, and some trails with all three at once. And there are also wide open intermediate trails on which developing skiers can hone their skills.
For families with true beginners, at different stages, this may not be your mountain as the magic carpet is on a different side of the mountain than the next easiest trail.
A new lodge was open last year. Can't comment, as I spend my time going from car to trail to car, but the bathrooms are kept clean. This is a hidden gem, and if you live convenient to I-91 it is worth checking out.
Lastly, what's not to like about a resort that gets almost all (if not all) of it's electricity from a mountain top windmill that the owners installed?
