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 two Triple Chairlifts 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, 37% 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 a 1.75-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 course down the mountain. The Sidewinder trails are one of 13 “More Difficult” trails at Catamount.
Love Black Diamonds? Catamount has them! The popular single-black diamonds include: Lower Alley Cat, Upper and Lower Glade, Off Stage trail — and new for the 2019-20 season, Marty’s Run. Taking it to the next level? Try our double-black diamond trails including the double-diamond Lynx trail, and two new trails, Ripper and Christopher’s Leap. Along with Catapult, these three trails are among the steepest in New England.
