Camelback Mountain Ski Resort, located in Tannersville, is a straight shot up the 80 about 30 minutes from your Lake Harmony winter retreat. Offering winter adventures that make you appreciate the season even more, the prices here, although a little higher than Blue Mountain and Big Boulder Mountain, will make you thankful you chose the Pocono Mountains (and one of our Pocono Mountain Rentals winter escapes) for your winter break! Offering 377 Snow Guns and an exciting new trail, even in drier winters, guests have the opportunity to schuss down the mountain with other likeminded individuals!
Winter Sports Reimagined
With over 166 acres of skiable land, skiers and boarders of all skill levels have determined that Camelback is their favorite Poconos ski resort—especially as 38 of the 39 trails are lit up, allowing for that oh so rare phenomenon of night skiing! If you haven’t flown down the hill under a night sky, well, we’re just going to have to tell you that you truly haven’t lived yet! 16 lifts make the ascent easy, and with 39% of the trails groomed for novice skiers, this spot is popular with people of all ages! 9% of the trails are extremely difficult, so experienced skiers need not worry they will be bored!
Private and group lessons are available for novices or skiers who just want to touch up on their skills. Not everyone lives near a mountain, and skills can get rusty over time. Two terrain parks keep the younger generations happy and busy, with the Progression Park being geared to beginning boarders. This could be your opportunity to try out a new sport, if you dare!
One of our favorite parts of Camelback Ski Resort, however, is the Snow Tube Park, which is the USA’s biggest one in existence. Our children love this place, as do our parents and our friends! Costing as low as $28 for military members (during the off-peak times) and topping out at $40 during weekends and holidays, it’s an expensive and exciting way to fill some of those vacation hours!
When It’s Time to Dine at This Poconos Ski Resort
You won’t need to leave the mountain to fill your stomach; Camelback Mountain Ski Resort offers a large selection of restaurants and cafes designed to keep hungry skiers full! The Thirsty Camel is renowned for its après ski drinks and live entertainment, while the Snow Tubing Lodge is where you can break for snacks and hot cocoa. And because they also serve alcohol, adults can enjoy their time in the snow tube lanes as well!
