This Week in the Berkshires!

It’s been a while friends! I got a little caught up in the Spring weather we were having here in Williamstown, which unfortunately has left and Winter has returned! This is great news for all of you skiers out there! We’re currently awaiting another winter storm and should be receiving around 3 inches or so of new snow. We still have our discounted lift tickets here at the front desk, so if you’re visiting to ski, don’t forget to ask me about our lift tickets at check-in! If you’re not visiting for skiing, there is still plenty for you to do while you visit. It’s actually a very busy, yet very entertaining week in the Berkshires. Dance parties, show cases, kitchen science experiments and more! There’s an event for all of our guests, young and old, rich and poor, and active and lazy! J Whoever you may be, make the most out of your visit here!
