personal conduct standards

This is typically the place where ski areas present an exhaustive list of what NOT to do.

While we take our Responsibility Code very seriously, we also like to think that common sense is more common than those exhaustive lists would suggest.

So here is our brief, more positive take on personal conduct.

Bousquet is for everyone, and we want everyone who visits to feel welcomed and comfortable.

With that in mind, when you visit, whether you are on or off the slopes:

  • Do the right thing.
  • Be kind.
  • Behave as if your Mom is watching.

Drone Policy

Bousquet Mountain’s proximity to the Pittsfield Municipal Airport means that we must prohibit the operation or use of unmanned aerial systems, or aerial drones, by the general public including recreational users and hobbyists. 

This prohibition on drone use extends to any drones launched or operated from Mountain property, as well as drones launched from private property outside of the Mountains boundaries.

Any violation of this policy may involve suspension of the users skiing or snowboarding privileges, revocation of the user’s season pass, as well as confiscation of any equipment. Violators will be liable for any damages, including but not limited to, physical or personal injuries, property damage, damages for violations of privacy, regulatory fines, and legal fees.

Pet Policy

We know pet owners love their pets, but Bousquet strongly discourages bringing them to the mountain out of consideration for those who don’t love pets.

Pets are permitted if kept on a leash no longer than 6 feet, at all times. Do not leave pets unattended. Do not leave pets in vehicles. Pets are not allowed in any buildings. Owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pets. If your pet is a disturbance, threat, or nuisance to others, we reserve the right to ask you leave without a refund.

cannabis/substance use policy

In compliance with Massachusetts law, marijuana may not be consumed (by smoking, vaping, and/or eating) anywhere at Bousquet Mountain -this includes parking lots, lodges, buildings, surrounding areas, base area, lift lines, chair lifts, or anywhere on the mountain.  In addition, Bousquet Mountain’s policy prohibits being under the influence of drugs or alcohol when participating in recreational activities at Bousquet, and prohibits the smoking or vaping of tobacco or drinking alcohol in lift lines or on chairlifts. Guests who violate Massachusetts law or Resort policy may have their lift tickets or season passes revoked without refund, be removed from Bousquet, and be subject to enforcement by the Pittsfield Police Department or the Massachusetts State Police.
Massachusetts General Law, Part I, Title XV, Chapter 94G, Section 7 allows adults age 21 and older to possess limited quantities of cannabis (marijuana) for personal use. The law further states that: “no person shall consume marijuana in a public space or smoke marijuana where smoking tobacco is prohibited”. Additionally, Massachusetts regulations (526 CMR 10.08) prohibit riding a chairlift under the influence of drugs.

 

REFUND POLICY

All lift tickets, tubing tickets and rentals are date specific and are non-transferable and non-refundable with the exception of the mountain closing due to inclement weather. Should the mountain close due to inclement weather, your ticket or rental can be moved to another equivalent day or you can receive a refund in the form of a gift card. Any ticket or rental adjustments may be made by calling 413-442-8985 or by emailing info@bousquetmountain.com. A $40 fee will be added to any ticket or rental, outside of the exception, that is requesting a date change.
