You don’t have to travel for many hours to find quality skiing and snowboarding in New England. Locals and visitors alike know that the Berkshires offer the best skiing opportunities in southern New England. While some seek extreme backcountry adventure on Mt. Greylock’s Thunderbolt Trail, others prefer the fun to be had night-skiing/snowboarding at the Catamount Ski Area or the readily-accessible Butternut just outside downtown Great Barrington.  Perhaps the greatest hidden gem in the Berkshires are the Nordic skiing opportunities that take the skier into some of the most scenic and majestic sylvan glades and hollows the region has to offer. Though the region is host to the same number of Nordic ski areas as alpine, there is no doubt that you will be able to get far from the crowds by venturing into the elaborate trail systems that while lacking the vertical drop, promise an adventure into the breathtaking natural wonders of the Berkshires.
