Adams is Winter in the Berkshires

Adams, Massachusetts is a perfect destination for winter recreation in the Berkshires. If you're an active person that likes to get outdoors in spectacular scenery, then Adams should be on your radar screen.

Mount Greylock is the tallest mountain not only in Massachusetts, but in all of southern New England. Mount Greylock's thousands of acres of preservation land offer miles and miles of trails for hiking, snowshoeing, Nordic skiing, telemark skiing, snowboarding and even snowmobiling. Our Thunderbolt Ski Run is a historic backcountry ski trail down the precipitous east face of Mount Greylock. This Class A Expert Trail was originally cut by the Civilian Conservation Corp in the 1930s. Over the years, it has attracted world-class skiers to compete in the annual Thunderbolt Ski Run. In recent years, Adams has hosted ThunderFest, a free downtown festival after the annual ski race. More information about the Thunderbolt Ski Run and ThunderFest can be found here.
