I went to Berkshire East for the first time on a Saturday. The place has a retro feel. No high speed quads, condos, or resort amenities (I don't think that is a bad thing). The terrain is fun and lift lines short even on weekends and lift tickets are reasonable. Snow making is not fantastic but more than adequate. I enjoyed my day there and will definitely go back. It is nice to find classic New England skiing without a circus like atmosphere of some of the larger resorts in VT.
