It's time to get ready for ski season. The snow this week has conjured up my adventurous side, and I can't wait to break out the Burton on all of the area's ski resorts. Wax up the boards and skis, clean the goggles and start planning your trips. And remember, you've got plenty of choices.
There are 7 major ski areas in the Pocono Mountains, all of which offer something a little different than the other. Camelback boasts the tallest mountain at 2,050 feet. However, Blue Mountain has the longest vertical drop at 1,082 feet. Big Bear is the only mountain that offers cross country ski trails and Shawnee Mountain offers childcare options. Don't sleep on Big Boulder, Jack Frost, and Alpine Mountain, as these resorts can accommodate skiers of all ages. All resorts offer snow tubing, a cafeteria/lounge, terrain parks, and a ski school. Try them all and decide for yourself. In the next few months our area will be filled with skiers and snowboarders from all over the country. Plan your trips now and get ready for a great winter season!
