PITTSFIELD, Mass. — After receiving an extensive makeover, Ski Bousquet will open this winter with many new — and some old — features.

The most obvious renovation is the modern 15,000-square-foot lodge that greets visitors from Dan Fox Drive.

The chairlifts will also maintain their original titles as

"He said, 'Yeah, we'll come see you play.'"   The coaches liked what they saw, and Sherman
