Thunder Mountain Bike Park Info
– Construction on a lift serviced mountain bike park has begun at Berkshire East Mountain Resort. These gravity flow trails are being designed for riders of a wide variety of skills, ages, and interests. The Mountain Bike Park will feature flow style trail construction with a jump trail, beginner, intermediate, and advanced trails on terrain that is accessible from the brand new “Summit Quad”. In addition to the trails, Berkshire East will supply high end bike rentals, lessons, guided tours, retail, food and beverage out of our brand new, 12,000 square foot timber frame lodge.
The brains and brawn for developing these trails comes from Gravity Logic, a company that cut its teeth developing many of the wests premier Downhill Mountain Bike Parks, including the world famous bike park at Whistler.
At Berkshire East, the bike park will be an important part of our transition to become the most dynamic small family resort in North America. Long known as a family friendly ski area, Berkshire East will soon feature some the most incredible year round outdoor recreation on the East Coast. Along with the Bike Park there are three industry leading Zip Line Canopy Tours, North America’s Longest Mountain Coaster, phenomenal skiing terrain, and many other activities all located within a 2 hour drive to Boston and 3.5 to midtown Manhattan.
Says resort manager Jon Schaefer, “We are committed to bringing world class activities to our beautiful hometown of Charlemont, Massachusetts. We don’t want to settle for second best and with Gravity Logic we have brought the best Downhill Mountain Bike trail builders in the business to Berkshire East.”
This commitment to excellence at Berkshire East is nothing new. Nor is this the last surprise this fall as several more exciting announcements will be forthcoming. The Berkshire East Gravity Bike Park will seamlessly integrate with the existing 35 miles of community trails that Berkshire East, Zoar Outdoor, NEMBA and the Warfield House.
