Many of the runs in western Massachusetts' Berkshire East are resort quality in design and upkeep. Those same runs are undiscovered. If you sometimes find yourself barreling north on Interstate 91 to ski in Vermont, try a Massachusetts detour. Exit onto Highway 2 West, and go 18 miles to the town of Charlemont. You will find Berkshire East, great snow, steep trails, and no crowds, which all serve to make up for the lack of amenities.
