Southern Berkshire Skiing

January 1st, 2020

“A pair of skis are the ultimate transportation to freedom.”
– Warren Miller

The Berkshires offer pristine skiing throughout the area and a community of winter-warriors, like Schoenknecht, whose adventurous spirits glisten throughout the area. Our local love of skiing has been so strong for over a century that below average snowfall in the winter of 1949 inspired Cornwall, CT ski enthusiast, Walter R. Schoenknecht of Mohawk Mountain, to get creative.  Schoenknecht’s passion for skiing guided him through extensive research and experimentation for nearly a decade and culminated in a design that has forever revolutionized the sport of skiing – the first artificial snow machine!
