last B'east Update of 2010!
Well, the foot of snow on Monday morning (which was legit at the top) gave way to a stellar Holiday week at the B'east. It's as busy as I've ever seen it and it still doesn't feel that crowded!
I enjoyed 2 unbroken virgin Powder runs on Upper-lower comp on Monday morning (and some good cut up cold crud runs after that).
Tuesday I had my boys (8 and 12) with me all day and, in spite of some frigid winds, skied excellent conditions. Yesterday (thursday) we again skied all day to the best weather conditions of the season (with a crew of other parents and friends).
And we'll be back Saturday Morning to enjoy what promises to be some actual Spring-like conditions.
All in all, after a Late (and, honestly, somewhat shaky) start, The place is skiing great as always, conditions are solid, by Saturday most of the terrain will be on line (except the tree runs, there's just too little cover-though, folks been skiing them anyway!).
So far, Berkshire East continues to provide the best small ski area experience available in the East--we'll need a few good heavy wet snow shots to really get it up to full enjoyment, but for right now, this is one of the better skiing holiday weeks in recent memory.
I'd also love to see a Bears meet-up at this Southern New England Classic.
Hey SMJ, did you get up to ski on Wednesday? How's the Shoulder?
