An 80-year-old hill near the Massachusetts/New York border, Catamount Ski Area announced this week that it plans to build a new lodge, renovate an old lodge, and install a brand new triple chair. The resort was one of the few remaining family-owned ski areas until it was sold to Berkshire East Mountain Resort over the summer for $2.3 million.
As promised, the hill’s new owners announced a plan this week to funnel some cash into the Berkshire ski area first opened in 1939, as reported by The Berkshire Eagle. According to a statement by Berkshire East’s owner announcing the purchase:
“Our experience at Berkshire East has proven that it is possible to transition a ski area in the Berkshires into a dynamic, adventure-based, four-season resort with world class mountain biking and zip lining, while featuring one of the longest mountain coasters in North America, white-water rafting, the top wedding venue according to ‘Yankee Magazine,’ and adventure park.”
Berkshire East has not publicly stated how much it will spend on renovations and new construction.
