Check out this website.  They have a forum.  Ask there.

Here's their list of lost ski areas in MA.

Thanks Liquid Fee, I checked it out and actually I see a lot of places close to me.

the Thunderbolt on Greylock looks like fun. The small ski area on the other side of the mountain also looks really cool. It's tiny with only 350 vert but it's funky and I think the terrain has an emphasis on back country type tree skiing. Tie that stuff in with a Berkshire East day and you got a sweet three day weekend.

There is one real gnarly place I know of.  Obviously snow has to be right.  Search TGR.

If you mean the Mount Tom Couloir Xtreme:

... then unfortunately the Fall of 2014 microburst has rendered the exit entirely unskiable.

So highly not recommended.

Plenty of other gnarly lines out here though when the snow is right:

Did anyone see the tracks on the side of big blue facing route 95 last year?

I second the Thunderbolt trail on Mt. Greylock.
