Ski & Snow Activities

There are many ways to enjoy a Pocono Mountains winter wonderland!

Ski and snowboard on over 185 slopes and trails, from steep expert slopes with challenging moguls, moderate trails for intermediates to cruise and gentle confidence building beginner hills for learning, to awesome terrain parks. Snow tubing is the easiest way to have fun sliding down a snowy 200-foot vertical drop in the Pocono Mountains.

Explore the beautiful countryside on pristine cross-country, snowmobile, and horseback trails. Take in the winter beauty of the Pocono Mountains on a sleigh ride or set out on snowshoes. Mush a team of dogsleds or ice skate and fish your way around one of our many lakes. Groups looking to take to the Tippmann Castle or the woodlands, can challenge themselves to a game of paintball during the winter season.
