sport that brings most people to the
Poconos is skiing / snowboarding). For
those who do not ski, but enjoy outdoor
snow activities, there is snow tubing.
Camelback Mountain is the area's largest
winter resort, with Shawnee and Jack
Frost tied for a close second. Blue
Mountain has the highest vertical and
the longest run, but not as many slopes
as the others and is in a less convenient
location. Accommodations are scarce
slopeside and most winter visitors stay
in a nearby hotel or inn. Below is an
insider's guide to the ski resorts in
on Poconos Ski Resorts:
PA has 33 slopes, 13 lifts, and snow
tubing park. The largest winter resort in the
Poconos. Voted the "Best Ski Resort in
the Poconos" 2010. Check
out Matt and Drew's review for the reasons.
(It has something to do with the cheeseburgers).
Well maintained slopes, lodge and grounds. Quick
and seasy parkign with shuttles to the slopes.
A snow tubing park accessible from the main
lodge with a shuttle. Friendly well trained
staff. The most trails down the mountain and
in the snow tubing park. The most lifts and
usually short lift lines. (They close ticket
sales when the lines get longer than about 20
minutes. A bold move.) This resort is customer
oriented and works hard to make snow sports
Ski Resort Shawnee-on-the-Delaware,
PA - has 23 slopes, 9 lifts, snow tubing.
Ya can't get closer to New Jersey and New York
than this. Only about 7 min from New Jersey. Trails
vary from easy to expert. 2 terrain parks for
snowboarding, Base Lodge, Ski School, Restaurants
and Bar. Try to go mornings or on the off peak
days and hours for the best experience. For snowboarders
there are two newly excavated step down jumps
at the beginning of the trail. These jumps will
add to the existing jump line and will also add
to the overall flow of the park. For beginners
morning, afternoon and full day programs are offered
daily by Shawnee's specially trained staff.
Boulder Lake Harmony,
PA has 14 slopes, 7 lifts, snow tubing.
The Little Sister of Jack Frost. But, the longest
running ski resort in the Poconos and the First
to Open most years!. A great place to learn. The
Home of snowmaking in the Poconos. Good elevation
so the snow is usually here earliest in the season
and latest in the spring. A great boarder mountain
(see the review).
This was the first commercial ski resort in Pennsylvania,
and it was here that snowmaking was first used
successfully in a commercial application. Big
Boulder PARK has quickly shot to the top of the
mid-Atlantic region and for the 08/09 season,
TransWorld Snowboarding has rated us a top 5 Terrain
Park on the East Coast of Canada and the United
States—no small feat for a Pocono ski resort not
used to playing on a national stage. But nothing
less will do for the cast and crew behind the
scenes at Boulder PARK.
Jack Frost Ski Resort
PA has 21 slopes, 7 lifts,
snow tubing. Widest trails, lodge at top of mountain,
sister of Big Boulder. Blakeslee. Great Views
of just empty mountains from most of the slopes.
Feels like you're truely in the woods. Good size
and equipped lodge, up to date rentals, well patrolled
and over all a great skiing experience. Jack Frost
with it's wider trials tends to be the best cruising
mountain in the Poconos. Slightly less crowded
than the others. The new ONE Park will be a perfect
extension of BBPark at Jack Frost, with a run
fine-tuned for beginners and intermediate-level
participants that will still hold value for experts.
Translation: famous Boulder Park fun for everyone,
now open earlier. ONE Park will offer a much longer
trail, so you can bet that there will be some
unique features at ONE Park that we just can't
pull off at Boulder PARK. Jack Frost opens 9am
midweek and 8am Saturday and Sunday, so bring
your family and friends 7 days a week to ONE Park
and get your park on.
