Catamount offers the most diverse trail network in the Berkshires! From super-gentle to super-steep, Catamount offers terrain that’s just plain unmatched, over 36 trails and park areas in all.
The Snowsports Learning Area is a gentle area right in front of the Base Lodge. It’s where kids and first-timers start out – and we make it easy with two Wonder Carpet lifts. It’s as easy to use as a moving sidewalk.
From there, most guests proceed to The Meadows – a beautiful complex served by a Triple Chairlift reaching Catamount’s Massachusetts summit. The Meadows is perfect for skiers and riders who are getting ready to explore – and it’s a favorite of families. Trails range from pretty runs through the woods to long, wide open slopes. There are lots of gentle, natural terrain contours – so you’ll really get the feel of the mountain under your feet! In fact, 33% of Catamount’s terrain is rated “easier.”
The main mountain features 1,000 vertical feet of descent and an array of terrain primarily serviced by the Ridge Quad reaching Catamount’s New York summit. The green circle -(“Easier”) Ridge Run connects to Upper and Lower Promenade, creating nearly a 2 mile top-to-bottom “Easier”run – as long as any run in the Berkshires.
For many guests, the blue square (“More Difficult”)Upper and Lower Sidewinder trails are a particular favorite. They swoop and turn as they courses down the mountain. The Sidewinder trails are one of ten ‘More Difficult’ trails at Catamount.
Love diamonds? Catamount has them! There’s Lower Alley Cat, Upper and Lower Glade, and the moguled Off Stage trail, double diamond Lynx and then there’s Catapult – Catamount’s signature double-diamond trail. It’s not just the steepest trail in the Berkshires – it’s one of the steepest trails in the Northeast!
