Mill Town announced on Friday that it has acquired the former Lakeside Christian Camp, a 135-acre property located on Richmond Pond in Pittsfield. A press release sent out by Mill Town via Tweak Media on Friday also says that Mill Town has an agreement in place to acquire the Berkshire West Athletic Club nearby on Dan Fox Drive in Pittsfield, across from Bousquet Mountain. This transaction is scheduled to close prior to the end of 2020. In addition to these two properties, Mill Town also owns and operates Bousquet Mountain, which plans to re-open for business this month.

The three properties are in close proximity to one another and offer a diversity of year-round features and amenities that include outdoor recreation, indoor athletics training, water sports, and lodging. Mill Town plans to bring these new assets under the umbrella of the “Bousquet” brand.

We’re excited to add these two significant properties to our portfolio of key regional assets. Outdoor recreation is a critical differentiator for Pittsfield and the Berkshires, and we plan to cohesively connect The Camp and Berkshire West with Bousquet Mountain to create a high quality and diverse recreational experience. This will increase and improve options for local customers and will help draw new outdoor enthusiasts to the area. ~ Mill Town CEO Tim Burke


Mill Town purchased the historic Bousquet Mountain ski area in May of 2020. The purchase included 155 acres across four parcels, including the summit of Yokun Ridge and 22 trails. Mill Town has completed an extensive renovation of the ski operation infrastructure on the mountain and has future plans to enhance the base area experience for year-round use.

Mill town says that adding these two new properties to the Bousquet umbrella creates nearly 300 acres of recreational offerings for the community.
