There’s no better feeling in the world then constantly being able to do something you love, and something I love very much is snow sports, skiing in particular. I just can’t get enough of the very sport I was introduced to over twenty-years ago. Since then, I have skied nearly all of the local resorts here in New England. I’m what you call a resort hopper in the ski world.
Today, I decided to make my way to Jiminy Peak in western Massachusetts, just up by the Vermont border. It’s within an hours reach of Litchfield County and offers up a pretty exciting day, not to mention an adrenaline rush. The resort boasts as one of the most popular in southern New England, and when you arrive here it’s really not all that hard to figure out why. With it’s persistent snow machines pumping out snow for all to enjoy, the conditions are always favorable, which means a lot less ice in comparison to many of the other resorts in southern New England.
I arrived here around noon and purchased an eight hour pass. I’ll even have the ability to ski under the lights once the resort lights up the trails for the evening! Night skiing is something I haven’t done a lot of. In Vermont, we don’t have night skiing given the elements and elevations, but night skiing is a popular trend amongst many ski areas as those who get out of work hit the slopes for the evening.
It’s a cold day here in the Berkshires. There’s just no question about it. I’ve even been dodging snow flurries as I glide down the slopes!
