Get ready for an exhilarating day of pre-season fun at the Cranberry Jam at Bousquet Mountain! We’re rolling out the white carpet for all you terrain park enthusiasts with a special sneak peek of our crafted park features. Glide, grind, and grab air before anyone else as we open our gates for an exclusive preview.
This event is not just about the thrills on the snow; it’s a celebration of mountain culture and community spirit, all wrapped up in the fresh, crisp pre-winter air.
From 11 AM to 3 PM, the park is yours to explore, and admission is absolutely free! Remember, your safety is our priority, so waivers and helmets are essential for all riders – sign up online at no cost and secure your spot on the slopes.
And what’s a jam without some good eats? This year, we’re taking the Cranberry Jam up a notch with a food truck parked right at the base of the mountain, ready to serve up hot, delicious treats to fuel your flips and flights.
Whether you’re craving a hearty lunch to recharge after a run or a sweet snack to celebrate a successful trick, our food truck has got you covered.
The excitement doesn’t stop there – we’re thrilled to be in cahoots with The Garden shop, infusing the event with a unique local charm that you won’t find anywhere else. It’s a collaboration that celebrates the best of Bousquet – adventurous spirits, the love of snow, and the warmth of our community.
The countdown to the coolest kickoff event is on – see you on the slopes!!!
Amanda started at Bousquet in September, 2022.
She was born and raised in the Berkshires and currently resides in Pittsfield. She loves to be outside in the summer months hiking the various trails we have to enjoy, biking on the Rail Trail or kayaking anywhere there is water. Although she enjoys the warm weather over the cold, she is excited to appreciate the winter beauty on a whole other level and brush up on her skiing skills!
When Amanda is not working, she thoroughly enjoys spending time with her family (mainly her 5 nephews and 1 sweet little niece 😊)
Yaron’s been in the Snowsports industry for 20 years, starting out as an instructor at Hunter Mountain. He leveled up with his Level 3 PSIA certification, then headed out west for a bit. Now he’s back east and has been our Operations Manager since the summer of 2023! He’s all about sharing his passion for the sport and making sure everyone enjoys their time on the snow.
Originally from Westchester County, NY, he’s now hanging out in the Berkshires, and if he’s not on the slopes, he’s probably biking around the hills (especially in the summer).
Eliza, a native of Canaan, NY, has been skiing since she could stand on two feet, and deeply loves the outdoors. After getting her Bachelor’s in Psychology in 2023, she joined the Bousquet team filled with passion for skiing, enthusiasm, and curiosity.
Her investment in Bousquet extends beyond the slopes, recognizing it as a gathering place that fosters community connections, promotes healthy living, and plays a significant role in sustaining the vibrant culture of Berkshire County.
