More About Canterbury Farm

About

Our trails are groomed for diagonal striding and skate skiing. We have a variety of beginner to advanced trails. Our lesson loop is easy for beginners to learn skiing, skating or ice skating from our experienced instructors. Most trails are in the woods along beaver ponds and old forest trees. You can ski to a lake when weather permits. There is a special snow shoe only trail that follows a brook to a large beaver pond. All of our trails reach a lookout point where Mt Greylock (tallest in Massachusetts) can be seen.

With a northern exposure at an elevation of 1700 feet, we often have snow when the valley area does not. Our 22 kilometers of machine groomed and tracked ski trails are groomed every day providing you with the best conditions possible. A complete ski , ice skate and snow shoe rental shop has top of the line equipment. Inside the lodge, The Berkshire Room has a light fare of assorted wraps, chili, home made soups, hot and cold drinks, and snacks in a cozy historic lodge. We do have bed and breakfast rooms available for overnight accommodations with skiing and a full breakfast included. Sit by the fire and enjoy the piano playing of Dave Bacon on special nights.
