Ski and Stay

Poconos Skiing

The sport that brings the most people to the Poconos is skiing/Snowboarding. For those who do not ski, but enjoy outdoor snow activities, we now have thousands of people who snow tube each year. Camelback Mountain is the area's largest ski and tubing resort, with Shawnee and Jack Frost tied for a close second.

Blue Mountain has the highest vertical and the longest run, but does not have as many slopes the others and is harder to get to than others. Accommodations are scarce slopeside so most visitors stay in a nearby hotel. Below is an insider's guide by a former VP at one of the ski resorts.

Poconos Ski Resorts:

Camelback Ski Resort
Camelback Ski ResortCamelback Mountain Resort Townhome Rentals- Tannersville, PA 33 slopes, 13 lifts, & snow tubing park. When people think skiing in the Poconos, they think "Camelback" The largest in the Poconos. Voted the "Best Ski Resort in the Poconos" 2002,3,4,5,6,7 and 2015. Well maintained resort with friendly staff and has the most trails of any Poconos Ski area. It also has the most lifts and usually short lift lines. (Last year they closed ticket sales when the lines got longer than about 20 minutes. A bold move.) The secret to skiing or boarding at Camelback is to stay to the Left of the Mountain (as you face it.) There the trails are longer, wider and have fewer people.Camelback Ski Packages When going to Camelback the hotels you should consider are: The Chateau, The Days In Tannersville, The Howard Johnsons in Bartonsville, Mountain Springs Cottages in Reeders, The Pocono Inn Town, and The Comfort Inn Mt Pocono.
