If you are new to the area or never been you have to check this fun event out.  ThunderFest is a celebration in honor of the Thunderbolt Ski Race and winter in the Berkshires.

It’s a great opportunity to get out, get rid of that the cabin fever and enjoy being outdoors. Some might think it crazy to hold an outdoor festival in the winter, but hardy Berkshire folk won’t let a little cold stop them from having a good time!
