Skiing the BerkshiresYou’ve seen the weather reports – we have a little snow here at the moment and that means … it’s time for skiing the Berkshires!

Whether you prefer cross-country skiing, alpine (downhill) skiing, snowboarding, or tubing, the Berkshires have the snow and slopes for you – and Applegate Inn is in the center of the action!

Check it out:

Bousqet Mountain

Bousquet Ski Area, smack dab in the middle of the Berkshires in Pittsfield, offers great family skiing or snowboarding opportunities plus tubing, all less than 10 miles from the inn!

Catamount Ski Area

Hovering between New York and MA, skiers here can actually move from state to state on the slopes. Catamount Ski Area straddles the border between Massachusetts and New York, allowing visitors to actually move from state to state on the slopes. Catering to skiers and snowboarders alike, the mountain offers some great, challenging runs and is only about 19 miles from the inn.
