catamount is the place to be. It's a great place for beginners and advanced skiers and boarders! The staff are very friendly and will always lend a helping hand. If you are planning to go to catamount and you live out of the area i woud reccomend staying at the Sylvannus lodge in hillsdale or the comfort inn in great barrington. Also try to bring your own food because the food in the lodge at catamount is very expensive. The best time to go to catamount is during the week, night skiing. There aren't half as many people and most of the trails are open. Also avoid going to catamount before christmas because the snow is usually packed powder that as HUGE ICE CHUNKS! But check this awesome place out. And people that say it stinks.... u are wrong! Let me tell you, i live down the road and the staff at catamount are always friendly and the trails are fun and awesome to ski and board. So leave catamount haters! Cause catamount rocks!
