Full review

Catamount is a really nice small full-sized ski station, with surprisingly long runs through really pretty glades and is a great challenge to your technique. Brilliant for good intermediates and below, it is very close to the beautiful and cultured towns of Great Barrington and Stockbridge and if you were planning to stay for a while, there’s plenty of variety in skiing if you include a visit or two to Catamount with visits to a couple of other very nearby skiing areas (Butternut and Mohawk, maybe). The mid-week deals are amazing for anybody up to high intermediate, $84 for lift ticket/rentals and lesson, which may turn out to be private with great instructors. Instructors discussing the economy and international trade – as I said, it’s a cultured area. And very friendly lodge and booking staff. A few other reviewers have complained about the ice/hard snow and the limited skiing. Well, if you are an expert, that’s probably true of everywhere except the big mountain resorts a few hours north. The snow in New England does seem to be icier than elsewhere, but with an instructor, is an amazing way to improve your technique – I was amazed at how many skiers where really good technically. I found it really hard to grip for turns, but later in my second day, I could really feel I’d improved.
