Best Skiing in the PA/NY/NJ area. There are so many different trails you will not be able to hit them all in one day. The double blacks are exciting and the Lazy Mile is quite relaxing. I see all type of kids hitting jibs and pulling out sick bangers. If you have little kids they have a daycare for your convenience. Love this place!
Good Uphill capacity,
Lots of ice,
Lots of Reckless Skiers,
Lots of people.
Drive north another hour and do some real skiing at ELK.
With 30 trails and eight lifts, skiers at this Poconos ski resort spend their time on the slopes--not in line..
Between runs, head to the mountain's Summit Lodge or Valley Lodge, where skiers will find cocktail lounges and three full-service cafeterias. With the area's extensive snowmaking capabilities and all slopes equipped with lights for night skiing, there is no reason to head home when the sun sets. Snow-tubing is an alternative to skiing and boarding.
Beginner and intermediate skiers should check out the mile-long trail, Paradise, for some uninterrupted fun. More advanced skiers should head to the resort's 5,000-foot-long, double black diamond trail, appropriately named Challenge, or head to Razor's Edge, a 3,000-foot-long expert trail. There also are two terrain parks and a halfpipe exclusively for snowboarders--although they also are welcome on all trails.
