Bousquet Ski Area is a fun-filled, all-season holiday destination for the whole family. There’s no arguing that it’s a great place to go whether the snow is falling thick, or the sun is glaring down. Situated in Pittsfield not far from the Pittsfield airport, Bousquet is just one of those places that you know you’ll enjoy.
The resort is situated at an elevation of 1125 ft and enjoys a 750 ft vertical drop. The mountain’s summit elevation is 1875 ft and while the 200 acres of ski-able land is not exactly enormous, it offers everything you’ll need for a great winter vacation. The mountains have 21 different trails which cater to most skill levels and which are serviced by five lifts. The relatively low snowfall is countered by a 98% snowmaking capability to ensure that you always get to enjoy your winter sporting activities. The trails are rated 34% beginner, 33% intermediate and 33% advanced. If you’re more of a snowboarding fan, you’ll find ‘The Tank’ – a 20 ft by 15 ft steel tank – just waiting to be ridden. There is also a terrain park to enjoy, as well as snow tubing, night skiing and stacks of good old-fashioned fun.
The Tamarack Lounge and Bousquet’s Snack Bar are the two favourite hang-outs when it comes to food. There is plenty of accommodation and you’ll find that the resort has great facilities which include affordable equipment rental and great instruction programs. You can also arrange private or group lessons for snowboarding and skiing. For those with young children the childcare facilities are great.
In summer Bousquet’s magic keeps the place alive. You’ll find waterslides, go-karts, wall climbing, miniature golf, deval karts, scenic chairlift rides and a kids camp to keep the little one’s entertained for hours on end. Of course, no matter what time of the year you are visiting, there are plenty of great attractions in the surrounding villages to take in, so even if you’re not getting wet on the water slides or enjoy the skiing slopes, you can still find plenty to do.
So why not start booking for Bousquet Ski Area now and spend the rest of your year looking forwards to a great family holiday. The resort is open for winter activity between December and March each year but you can visit almost any time you want. Book now!
