How many people can say they hit the slopes in two states in one day? Straddling the New York and Massachusetts border Catamount is a hidden gem among the numerous ski areas of the northeast.
Boasting 1,000 vertical feet of fun and offering some of the most varied terrain in Southern New England, Catamount is a perfect destination for skiers and snowboarders of all levels looking for something a little less cookie-cutter.
For those that might think that a ski resort in the Berkshires can't possibly have challenging terrain, think again. Ripper and Catapult, Catamount's signature double black diamond rated trails are as steep as anything in the Catskills or Vermont. Both have hair-raisingly steep sustained pitches of nearly 600 vertical feet that'll be sure to test your mettle.
Those looking for a more mellow day on the slopes need not be afraid. Catamount boasts 35% green and 45% blue square trails including the Snow Sports Learning Area for 1st timers and beginners. Ridge Run to Upper and Lower Promenade is the longest green run in the Berkshires at a whopping 2 miles and is great for honing those skills.
