Berkshire East staffers John Herrick and Kate Carcio were all smiles—bright white against those late-ski-season tans—when they dropped by this year's Best of the Valley open house. The gem of a ski resort in Charlemont has had "a phenomenal year, even with the bad economy. We had a ton of new customers," said Herrick. With great terrain for experts and novices alike, a cool, family-friendly vibe, and an ever-expanding tube park, the Beast offers great value at the lowest prices around.
