Cross-country skiing!
Windsor, Massachusetts

Notchview Reservation, a 3,100- acre property of The Trustees of Reservations, offers spectacular cross-country skiing on 27 km of forested trails. Located 2,100 feet above sea level, Notchview is well known for its early snow and extended season. The wooded trails protect skiers from the harsh winds normally experienced by high-elevation skiers in the Berkshire Hills.

The outmost trails, ideal for the backwoods tourer, take the skier through a variety of forest types. The groomed, inner-trail network offers faster-paced skiing along wooded roads and across open fields.

For the enjoyment of all visitors, pets and motorized vehicles are prohibited at Notchview.

Notchview Reservation features:

  • 27 km of trails - gentle slopes for beginners and challenging trails for advanced skiers.

  • an extended season (usually mid-December to late March) due to high elevation.

  • warming and waxing area in the Arthur D. Budd Visitor Center.

  • two trailside shelters

  • overnight accommodations at nearby B & B's

    For ski conditions and more information call 413/684-0148. Skiing is free to all current members of The Trustees of Reservations. Admission fee for non-members.
