    Why I love Berkshire East. Here’s a photo of chairlift line Saturday afternoon of MLK weekend with 6” of fresh snow. Many natural trails reopened. Skiied Upper Liftline (including the very top by the unload terminal) and Horaces Grove, both of which were open despite trail report listing them...

    If you travel from Mass to Vermont, do you have to quarantine for 28 days ? 14 for Vermont, and then another 14 when returning to Mass ?

    Berkshire East dropped the ropes on Upper Comp today, so they have finally gotten one of the steeps re-opened after the Christmas washout. Ungroomed with pretty big moguls at the very top. Of course, it is not listed as open on today’s trail report 😡 I prefer Berkshire East over Jiminy Peak...

    End of paper trail maps?

    I will be seriously bummed out if there are no more paper trail maps. When visiting a new area, I always get two copies, one for my home collection goes straight into the boot bag. The other into my pocket for studying on the chairlift, and spreading out on the table at lunch to recollect the...

    COVID concerns in the Northeast

    No, that article is out of date. Currently Hawaii is the only state in the “low risk” category, meaning no quarantine required when entering Massachusetts. People from all other states must quarantine, https://www.mass.gov/info-details/covid-19-travel-order

    Berkshire East - 12/28/2020

    The storm has sent Berkshire East back to square one, bare earth everywhere except for the open trails Mohawk, Big Chief, Lower Comp, Outback->War Dance. Solid coverage on those trails. Lower Mohawk closed. Very top of Big Chief closed (above the 1st merge with Mohawk). Official trail...

    Berkshire East 12/20/20

    Hey Zand, good report, glad you had a good time, I was there on Sunday late afternoon and agree with your thoughts. Especially about how unreliable the snow report is and how they do a poor job of marking closed trails. I emailed their customer service a year or two ago to ask them to include...

    Wachusett - 12/18/2020 (AM Session) - Groomed

    Thanks for the report. It’s disappointing that they haven’t been able to open another run off the summit yet. I was there before the recent storm and 10th Mountain looked skiable then, can’t understand why they can’t get it open after another foot + of new snow

    Berkshire East 12/17/2020 Opening Day Powder

    Hey Zand, got to warn you, I went back to Berkshire East today (Friday), and they had closed off all the goods. Only Mohawk, Big Chief, and Outback open from the top. Very frustrating and I don’t understand it, still plenty of snow everywhere...
