Jiminy Peak Ski Trails
Jiminy Peak provides 20 plus different trails to ski on. Each trail is designed to complement several different skill levels. You will also find multiple chair and surface lifts. When the light goes in, the slopes do not close. There are dozens of light poles throughout the area to ensure that you can continue skiing and see where you’re going at the same time. This allows the skier to feel comfortable knowing that they will be able to get a full day of activity in.
If there is no snow, do not worry. Jiminy Peak has state-of-the-art snow-making machines working day and night to produce trails that are still able to be skied. This is usually not a worry in the Berkshires though. The reason for this is that the Berkshires are usually one of the few areas that have a solid snow season almost every year. This is in part because the Berkshires are located mostly on mountains, providing a greater opportunity to receive a solid snowfall.
The highest height of one of Jiminy Peak’s slopes is well over 1000 feet. You may argue that there are higher slopes in nearby Vermont or New Hampshire, and you are right. What you must take into consideration though is the way Jiminy Peak is designed. It is designed in such a way that you get a truly unique scenic skiing experience.
Many people who have skied for years continue to ski and look for slopes that present to them one-of-a-kind views. Jiminy Peak offers its slope riders this opportunity through its unique vision and design. They are also constantly working to create more trails that encompass this vision.
