    Berkshire East or Crotched for President's Day?

    Hoping to get out tmrw before the rain effs things up.

    I am trying to decide between Crotched and BEast...thinking Crotched will have better snow but may be more crowded?

    What say ye?

    Went to B East recently it was great. Week ago Saturday, didn't get there till 8:45 still parked in third row.

    Dunno anything re Crotched.

    Snow was good yesterday at Crotched. No crowds, but that was likely due to forecast. I've never really been to Crotched where lines are longer than 5 minutes.

    I can't comment on BEasts conditions, but I'm sure it would be a good choice too.

    I have not been to BEast this year yet. That being said the past few years I usually hit it on MLK day and Presidents' Day. Never had a problem with lines there . I have been to CM several times but always on a normal Saturday and the same could be said. I tend to like the feel of BEast a bit more (lodge, feel of the trails, etc) but if one is a lot closer I would go by that.

    Snow at BEAST was great today, though brutally cold...

    I'm interested in what we see at the Crotch tomorrow. Pent up demand before the nfp event, or this year just sucks! Friday evening was nice, even some small bumps under the Rocket. Still dreaming about last year!!

    I would pick Berkshire East 100% of the time unless for some reason they had no snow.

    Looks like they are about 90% open and you can ski the woods anyway and duck a rope or two and they really don't care.

    I would think BEast would have more of a crowd. Not a crowd but more of one. NH schools are not out today where Mass has the day off.

    Recommend you stay out of the woods. Lots of new rock turned up by the bike trail projects, will take more base than in the past.
