Come winter and Berkshire dons’
snow white and awaits the visitors to have cool fun with them. The
Snow clad mountains invite you to sledding, icy ponds and lakes
for figure skaters and ski slopes for cruisers or “snow bunnies,”
and miles of woodland trails for cross-country skiing or high-stepping
with snowshoes including neighborhood hockey games. (P.S. There
are ski lessons for “First Timers” at Bousquet)
Leisure walking the streets of Berkshire in cold weather is fun
by itself. The small time shoppers can look for charming galleries
displaying books, creative art, jewelry and hand-made collectables.
One cannot escape the inviting aroma emerging from the eateries
on the nook specializing in local favorites like tantalizing tapas,
hearty fare and savory bowls of organic soups, bread from bricked
ovens, freshly made pastas, soba and sushi.
Keep the pace with the changing season, the hotel industry offers
heated indoor and out door pools for the warmth that engulfs the
physique. Gazing the stars in such clear wintery nights from such
a luxury is the feeling beyond the words. Besides, there are special
treats for kids like hot tubs, play centers that encourages their
creativity. For grown ups, there are Spas.
The non-stop fun continues at Jiminy Peak, Ski Butternut or Catamount
with different rides and games. Learn about the stars and planets
at Old Hopkins Observatory at Williams College for a free show about
planets, moon phases, mythological figures and zodiac signs from
the Zeiss Skymaster. One can also test his/hers crooning abilities
while singing with guest artists at MASS MoCA if you like.
Plan your family’s Berkshires winter vacation, which is just
a few clicks on the laptop or a phone call
away for a memorable Berkshires experience.
