Catamount Ski area #intheBerkshires bounces back after its sale

EGREMONT – It may be the biggest secret in skiing and riding, and it is getting bigger all the time.

After years of struggling financially, Catamount Mountain Resort is making a fast comeback since the Schaefer family, the long-time owners of Berkshire East, purchased it in May 2018.

In just 20 months the existing lodge has been renovated and a new lodge was built next to it, a new lift was installed and seven new trails – all of them with snowmaking – have been cut. The area has also purchased two new groomers, 200 snowguns and created four new ponds that will provide more water for snowmaking, said Rich Edwards, marketing director.
