Thunder Ridge Ski Area

With a 500' vertical and 100 acres, Thunder Ridge is small compared to its neighbors in the Berkshires and Catskills. But, it provides an easy way for people in the area to easily get skiing. It contains two mountains, both with short and steep advanced pitches before mellowing out. One bottom to summit chair of the six total lifts goes over the ridge of the first mountain to reach the second as they are in a row. Due to it being at a low elevation and far south, it recieves high temperatures and little snow relative to the mountain ranges nearby. Snowmaking isn't too strong either, so the ski area commonly has about 50% of the mountain open. The 30 trails contain steep headwalls, such as the expert Fool's Delight, and wide open faces such as The Face, and still has plenty of long beginner run cruisers such as Lover's Lane or Thunder Road.
