Mountain Ski Area
In The Poconos Mountain of Pennsylvania
skiing rates high at Alpine. Also, a great place to learn to ski.
Though it is one of the smallest ski areas in the Poconos, you will
find a lot of locals here. It is also the cheapest. There's enough
terrain for a coupe days, a snow park for tubing and a rustic lodge
with the basics like hot dogs and hamburgers, drinks, rentals and
a small shop for boots, ski, poles, goggles and some clothing.
"Just For Kids" and "Just For Racing Kids" programs
are programs worth mentioning. Kids have their own area with teaching
aids helping younger skiers to learn at their own speed. After the
kids learn to ski, they can join the Just for Racing Kids program
to test their skills.
is a variety of slopes and trails enabling the beginner skier to
feel confident, and bring some excitement to the novice and intermediate
skiers. There is little, however, to challenge the expert.
and Drew rate Alpine "snowboard friendly" snowboarding
is usually available on all trails. Snowmobiling (when natural snow
is available) is a nice touch.
snowmaking system covers 100 percent of the mountain with more than
4,000 tons of snow 6 to 18 inches deep on most of the trails in
Mountain has some of the best rates, and programs for beginners
and is convenient to NY and NJ skiers. There's also a fine tubing
run for those who don't ski or board, when the snow's right.
