Full review

This place is so straightforward, I'm not sure a description past the stats sheet on this site is required. Here's your 750 vertical feet. Here are 20 some fall-line runs (with some short, pretty steep pitches off the top of the longer chair.) Here are a couple old double chairs to enjoy it with. Went there on a very fast day with rock hard snow that you could just barely count on being able to keep an edge in and had fun roaring around the place. The trouble with Bousquet is variety. There isn't much. I felt like I skied the whole place after a couple runs and, I'd never been there before. The facilities match what you would expect for a local, inexpensive day area. Are there more updated, more interesting hills to ski in the area? Yes. Should you ski Bousquet if you happen to be in Pittsfield looking to make some turns on a Thursday afternoon? Yes. This is a friendly, family run area that provides a fair return for your lift ticket dollars, is an asset to the community and, deserves a bit of your wax.
