Berkshire Snow Basin Lift Demolished
Berkshire Snow Basin Lift Demolished
The 550 vertical foot T-Bar last operated for the public in 1989.

The long-idle West T-Bar at Berkshire Snow Basin has been demolished in recent weeks. The 1961 Doppelmayr T-Bar served as the summit lift at the Western Massachusetts ski area until its closing in 1989.

Located on Route 9 in Cummington, the ski area was sold to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in 1994, eventually becoming the Bryant Mountain State Forest. No DCR officials reached for comment on Friday had knowledge of the state forest or the lift demolition.

Berkshire Snow Basin debuted during the 1949-50 season and was a well known area until it was left as chairlifts and Interstate highways opened.

During the early 1980s, the 550 vertical foot ski area was operated by Berkshire East and Jiminy Peak.
