Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort
Description:

In the Berkshires of western Massachusetts, Jiminy Peak is a destination resort with plenty of activities for everyone. Aside from great skiing and riding, you'll find ice skating, child care and activities for kids as well as nightlife for the grown-ups. At the base of the mountain is the 105 suite Country Inn, complete with heated swimming pool, whirlpools, exercise room and game room. Every suite in the Inn includes a master bedroom, living room with a queen size sleep sofa, cable TV as well as a fully equipped kitchen. Families or groups may be more at home in one of the two or three bedroom condominiums located throughout the resort.

Pros: Terrain variety, fast lifts, grooming, economical if you're in the know

Cons: 1100 vertical, no tree skiing, overly manicured, crowds on weekends/holidays

I live an hour away and really appreciate Jiminy.  For a small eastern area, it has a lot of variety: 3-4 legitimate steeps, a number of black/blue runs, and a bunch of easy groomers. 

 

There's a resort/condo complex at the base that I ignore, but it does bring in the upscale "resort" experience.  There are benefits: Jiminy has a super-quick 6-pack to the top -- 1100' in 41/2  minutes.  But it also means they groom everything flat all the time, so there's little natural skiing unless you hit it on the day of a storm.  The place is at the opposite end of the spectrum from, say, Berkshire East.  Still, the place is well laid-out and very usable,  and the trails are pretty and interesting for what and where they are. 

 

The best part is price: for $45 you can buy a value card that saves $15/day on tix. It also comes with one day free.   And they tend to offer internet coupons periodically for $25 or $35 day passes and "state" or men's/women's days.  So, by picking the day, I often only pay $35 or $40 for an entire 8 hours (they're open 9 - 10pm most days). 

 

Williams College is very close and so are other schools, so the average local's skill is pretty good.  There's a contingent of telemarkers.  On weekends/holidays, it does fill up with New Yorkers and visitors to the resort and I avoid those days.

 

Overall, Jiminy is a good miniature eastern resort.  I'm a pretty good skier and I get bored if I go too often, but it's a very reasonable, closer option to southern VT areas.

Pros: Fun trails, night skiing, not too over crowded

Cons: None that I can recall

This is the first mountain I went skiing on. I wasn't sure how well I was going to do, but I picked it up pretty fast and had a ball here. Definitely didn't go down any of the difficult trails, but fun none the less. The view at the summet of the mountain is awsome, especially with the big wind turbine they have up there. They keep the trails groomed fairly well here too.

 

The rental skiis/boots were also pretty decent quality.

 

Great place to ski, I plan on making a trip there this season now that I've gotten better.
