Plans to build a skiing and education center at the base of Massachusetts’ Mount Greylock have taken an important step forward.
According to an article on BerkshireEagle.com, the town of Adams, Massachusetts has received 13 responses to a request to design and supervise building an estimated $5 million, 11,000-square-foot outdoor skiing and education center at the Greylock Glen, at the base of Mount Greylock Reservation.
It’s part of a decades-long effort to create a multi-million dollar cultural and eco-tourism education and entertainment center on the 1,064-acre public parcel abutting the Appalachian Trail and the state’s highest peak.
The disclosure comes six weeks after North Adams artist, architect and “green industry” entrepreneur Ralph Brill submitted a 140-acre campground proposal for “Hobbit-style” sleeping huts and rustic cabins and said he wanted to combine it with hostel-style lodging and virtual-reality training facility in the vacant Adams Memorial Middle School. Adams officials are now mulling his proposal.
