Now is the time to start making plans for that fantastic Berkshires skiing getaway you’ve been dreaming of all summer long. Applegate Inn is a short drive away from some of the best skiing the Berkshires have to offer and would love to be your home base.
Is there any other winter activity that is as exciting than hitting the slopes? Not for most of us! Once the snow starts to fly there’s no end to the fun. We typically start seeing for snow around late November or December and up through as late as the end of March. January and February are the most reliably snow packed.
And what skiing!
The Berkshires are home to some excellent alpine, cross-country, and snowboarding opportunities. We’re also home to excellent snowshoeing, ice-skating, sledding, tubing, and more.
No matter what shape your idea of a winter-sports vacation takes, the Berkshires have it. Even better, most of the best skiing opportunities are less than a half hour from our Berkshires bed and breakfast here in Lee, MA.
