Winter’s here, and you know what that means—its time to hit the slopes! Luckily you won't have to go to far, as Pennsylvania is home to some impressive ski resorts to visit for a day or a weekend getaway.
Elk Mountain has been open and operational since 1959 and offers premier ski facilities—there are 27 trails and very diverse terrain—as well as ski school programs for the novice skier and a host of restaurants for a power lunch or an après ski drink. These slopes also offer night skiing!
For those seeking a true challenge, Blue Mountain offers the highest vertical in the state at 1,082 feet. The mountain has four terrain parks, 34 trails and 9 lifts on 158 skiable acres, and a massive snow tubing park with 19 slides. All of the trails are also lit for night skiing.
First-time skiers should spend the day at Camelback Mountain, which is also the largest mountain in the Poconos—novice trails making up 54% of the mountain’s skiable grounds. There are 34 trails (all lit for night skiing), 15 lifts, and snowmaking around the clock for optimal conditions.
