Die-hard Skiiers and riders braved the snow-covered roads to make their way to Berkshire East ski resort Tuesday. This was skiers’ snow; real powder which New England skiers don’t often have the chance to enjoy.
Director of Marketing Gabriel Porter-Henry said that Berkshire East can survive on their man-made snow, but the natural snow gets people really excited to ski.
“We have been making snow all weekend so all this new natural snow that falls on top is only going to make it better,” Porter-Henry said. “So we are looking at a great week ahead for skiing. We love it when we get this natural snow.”
Porter-Henry told 22News they’re hoping for mostly snow with this storm, but he said the sleet and freezing rain that’s expected to mix in later won’t hurt conditions.
They’re hoping for at least 10 inches by the time the snow stops falling. We’ll see how that turns out.
