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 the Poconos.
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 fun.
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
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.
