Poconos Ski Resorts in the Poconos Mountains

Posted on 01. Oct, 2015 by in Resort

Powderskate – The Poconos ski resorts are the closest slopes to NYC and Philadelphia – just think, in as little as two hours you could be up in the mountains enjoying the powder.   Without question, the best skiing near NYC, Baltimore/WashDC and Philadelphia are the Poconos Mountains and surrounding areas.

Other pages of interest are the snowboarding page, cross country skiing and the snow tubing page. Some of the poconos resorts (not ski resorts) have snow tubing on their property and is included in the packages they offer. By the way, tubing is not just for kids. Also, you might want to look at the cross country skiing pages as well – great condition, and the snowmobiling pages.

The Poconos are located in the northeast part of Pennsylvania and are mostly known for their romantic Poconos vacations. But with all the different outdoor activities available in the Poconos, this is a great vacation spot for family vacations as well.

The Poconos Mountains is home to more than ten different ski resorts. The largest one, Camelback Ski Area, has 33 slopes and covers 139 acres. At an elevation of 2,133 feet, its steepest slope is 800 feet. The Jack Frost Big Resort is located close to the ski area of Camelback. This ski area is two resorts combined into one with nearly 30 different ski slopes.

Skiing is no doubt synonymous with the Poconos. In 1946, Big Boulder became the first commercial ski area opened in Pthe state of  Pennsylvania. Ten years later, the process of man-made snow was patented, perfected and the Pocono Mountains were introduced as a ski destination in the Big Boulder Ski area. Some of the hot skiing spots during winter include Alpine Mountain, Shawnee, Blue Mountain, Camelback and Jack Frost to name a few, with over 20 trails to choose from.
