Thunderbolt Ski Trail

140301 thunderbolt 699This Class A downhill ski trail was originally built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. After its inaugural race in 1935, the trail garnered the attention of Olympians from across the world and served as the site of championship races. After World War 2 with the advent of ski areas with rope tows and chair lifts, the Thunderbolt Trail gradually fell into disrepair. In the early 2000s, an intrepid group of local volunteers called the Thunderbolt Ski Runners restored the trail in time to hold a 75th anniversary race in 2010. Ski races continue to be held on “The ‘Bolt” annually when conditions permit. 

Accessible from Greylock Glen or Mount Greylock Summit
