Back To Berkshire East Ski Area

Berkshire East Ski Area is a kid-friendly sort of place, well known for programs that introduce children to skiing, snowboarding, and tubing. But given that it’s a 1.5 hour drive  to get there from Albany, each way, we don’t go too often.

On Sunday, January 22, 2012. my daughter and I returned for another ski race; this time Kayla competed as a J2 (High School sophomore) in the Schaefer Cup Slalom Race.

In previous years, my son and I bypassed the slopes for the thrills of tubing. As he was racing at another mountain, and I was the designated parent cheerleader, it was a quieter day for me.

Here’s my homage to the delights of Berkshire East, not least of which is the windowed-wall which gives weary parents an unfettered view of mountain attractions.
