Berkshires reservation reopens after snow fall

ADAMS, Mass. (AP) — A rare Memorial Day weekend snow fall left guests stranded at a Berkshire Mountains lodge.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that Mount Greylock State Reservation reopened Monday morning after a weekend snow fall left slick roads leading to the summit.

Peter Dudek, a manager at Bascom Lodge at the summit, said some hikers and staff sought refuge during the inclement weather.

He estimated the snow fall to be a few inches, with snow drifts up to six inches. He says it was enough for people to be snowed in at the lodge.

The National Weather Service said 7 1/2 inches of snow fell in parts of northern Vermont by early Sunday morning.
