Full review

We thoroughly enjoyed a ski visit to Berkshire East, yesterday. Echo the previously authored pros of uncrowded and unspoiled -- just plain fun! Refreshing break from Vermont resort madness. Runs are reasonably long given the size of the facility, and the ski-to-wait time is great, even with the older lifts. Staff was extremely accommodating (thank you Forest, from the ski patrol!), food was actually good, and the place just felt comfortable for a family. We had a blast (indeed, our favorite ski experience ever) and will be back frequently, and soon. Perhaps not the spot for luxury, nightlife and the like, and it is of modest overall size -- cons for some, pros for others.
