Not as much variety as Vermont or US NY mountains.

Full review

I attended college in Amherst, and Berkshire East was about 45 minutes from campus to slopes. My parents owned a home in southern Vermont, which was about an hour and a half from campus; and I prefer VT skiing. I liked Berkshire East in terms of what it had to offer terrain-wise and the fact that I could do it as an easy day-trip from campus, or turn it into an overnight and combine Berkshire East with Mt.Snow & Haystack for a weekend (or extended holiday weekend) away. I preferred Jiminy Peak in nearby Hancock overall as my favorite Berkshire ski resort, but BE was a close second (and Butternut third). I haven't skied at BE since the 98/99 season, and I live in Northern California and ski Tahoe and the Sierra Nevada mainly now, but I will ALWAYS love New England skiing, because it's how I grew up skiing.
