great mountain with some cool terrain. Very quiet mountain so perfect for beginners or for a quick day trip to the Berks. The rental skis were great quality and everyone at the resort was great. The Crazy Horse bar has good priced food and drinks.

Nice place to go skiing or just sit in the lodge and sip hot cocoa while watching the skiers. Easy to get to.

We were in the area for white water rafting and did not know how much cool, summertime activities they have at Berkshire East. We did some hiking and took a few runs down the new mountain coaster. The coaster was great. Set your own speed and make your own fun out of it. There's no chance of coming off the... More

We rode the new mountain coaster twice and could have done it all day if we had money to burn. This was a blast from top to bottom. It's long, smooth, fast and you feel like you're on a big roller coaster. What a great addition to the ski resort. If you love coasters, this is a must if you're... More

The zip lining was good. Guides made it fun and safe.Clear instructions. Bit disappointed that we had to walk down instead of being able to take the ski lift as advertised

The tall trees, the towering slopes and the calmness of the resort made a good first impression on me and my family. We went there with our out-of-town guest and everyone ages 12 to 58 had a fabulous time. The mountain top zip line was just the right one to do for our group of first-time zip liners. The guides...

We came early on a Sunday to ride the Mountain Coaster. Two teenagers with mom and dad. We've ventured down alpine slides and alpine coasters in four different states now, and this is one of the best (and certainly the newest). We were the first to arrive, so there was no wait. The staff is clear with their instructions, and... More

My husband and his friends just returned from their first visit to Berkshire East from a weekend of downhill mountain biking and are now IN LOVE! They have been to multiple other venues for downhill mountain bike riding and all agreed this mountain is by far their favorite! They also really enjoyed the mountain coaster!

You may recall your days long ago of playing with an metal erector set to build your favorite structure.... well fast forward to present time and this is exactly what exists, life size, with the mountain coaster. The coaster track and supports are very reminisent of the perforated metal design ... obviously professionally constructed. You need to sign a liability... More
