Winter in the Berkshires


Berkshire County entertainment  moves to warmer indoor sites in winter and continues uninterrupted in January and February.   Berkshire County is a winter wonderland  during snow ski season.  But our Berkshire Winter entertainment goes way beyond the  sleek slopes and downhill ski runs.  We are sharing this New York Times Article written by columnist Mark Vanhoenacker.  You can read the entire article by clicking the link at the bottom of our page which will take you to the New York Times website.  Wishing you lots of snow and warm fires during this winter season!
