Beast 2019

Recommended Posts

Berkshire East is scheduled to open tomorrow! Hopefully this is a great season with lots of fresh snow, grippy cord, and friendly familiar faces. Hope to see you there!

I won’t make it there this weekend but I do plan to spend some time there later in the year. If anyone gets out there for opening day please send a report!

It's never too soon to talk RALLY!  I'm debating whether to come out on Saturday or stay closer to home.  It looks like it's warmer today, tonight, and tomorrow.  It's not likely to drop below freezing again until Sunday. 

Has anyone been there this week? Condition report? Thoughts on the outlook for this weekend?

I'll be up there on Saturday!  

i was up a lil while back and it was pretty stellar!  Exhibition was very wide considering the time of year. Hopefully this rain won't dampen things too much.  I really wanna get some laps in on my new board!

Saturday here, or Stratton or Okemo, are in my plans, but will have my kids in tow...so not sure how much carving I'll get in, unless I stick my youngest in ski school 😉

I was there the Wednesday after the storm and there was solid coverage. I didn't ride the carving board much because the snow was still a lil soft and my legs were still recovering from the weekend. I think things should be  looking pretty good for this weekend!

Thank you Robin!  Great intel.

How's the base coverage(website say 8" for a while)?  Rock board or it's safe to bring out the trailer queen?
The Beast is calling for 5" of snow since yesterday.  It's looking yummy...

Any good boot fitter near the Beast?
Any deal for cheap lift ticket?

Thank you in advance!

David, No boot fitters close by that I'm aware of. I'm thinking of coming out Sunday before the game. Anyone else?

YES!!! I will see if I can come out Saturday, too.  That will require some negotiation and schedule rearranging.  Stay tuned.

oh baby... it is good today....  My best day ever at the Beast

cold -- yes.. just a little bit.  Never saw the outside temperature reading so low in my car. 
empty -- East Coast MCC lol...  The whole morning I feel I have the mountain to myself.
Snow is epic/hero; can't believed I am in the North East.  Just a tiny bit soft like a fine custard that's set but need just 1 more day to be perfect.
The 3rd groom rule is truth lol.   Tomorrow/Sat should be even better!

Got about 22k vertical feet in; Ran out of time/warmth before I ran out leg/lung... 
I blame the slow chair lift lol.
