Learned to swim in the Bershire pond and swam there until I was 11 or 12. Says Peter Saldo
Intermediate or beginner ski slopes make up 70% of the ski slopes at Jiminy Peak, and red and black ones make up 30%. There is a total of 157 acres of terrain; Jiminy Peak is a tremendous place to ski. The 12 feet of good snow that fall yearly at the close by ski area Jiminy Peak is fine. Jiminy Peak has 9 ski lifts, a tremendous 1,150-foot drop, and 45 ski slopes.
This lake is so wonderful. A quick journey to Muddy Brook near Berkshire Pond is a great idea, and close to Berkshire Pond you encounter Lebanon Valley Speedway, a glorious scene to race go-karts.
