About the Ski Resort

Catamount Ski Area is located on Route 23 between Hillsdale, N.Y., and South Egremont, Mass.

The ski area sits right on the New York and Massachusetts border, with skiing terrain on both the Berkshire Mountains and the Taconic Range.

With more than 110 skiing acres with a northeastern exposure, Catamount holds a special attraction for skiers.

The ski area's trails offer a challenge for every level of ability. The expert trails, Lower Alley Cat and Upper Alley Cat, drop 600 feet, more than a 1,700 foot distance.

Catamount has installed a Wonder Carpet more generically known as carpet or
conveyor. This 300ft. conveyor takes people up the newly expanded beginner
slope in a standing position and removes the fear that first timers have of
chair lifts and other types of surface tows.

Also new is a high intermediate trail from the top of the mountain to Turnpike and then to Holiday. All new snow making equipment has been installed on these trails.
