A White Christmas
If you live in a city where it does not typically snow around the holidays, you are in luck when visiting the Pocono Mountains. Our lovely area is home to over 185 different skiing trails throughout the winter season. Snow is very common around Christmas and New Year’s Eve, so you can expect some picture-perfect photos during your stay.

As mentioned, it is very common to find snow in the Pocono Mountains during the winter season. Our winter trails make the Poconos one of the most popular winter destinations around the holidays. Try your skills on the nearly unlimited number of skiing trails found on the mountains. If you have never skied before, have no fear, as local shops provide introductory lessons throughout the season and provide you with the gear you need. Additional activities include dog sledding, sleigh rides, ice skating, snowmobiling, and much more.
