  • We love this place! Great low key ski mountain not too far from home. Lift lines reasonable (offsets slower lifts). Friendly staff. Beautiful mountainous terrain a bit further away from the usual busier Pocono resorts. We'll be back!
  • Fun place to ski, go on a week day when it's not crowded. Great terrain for PA. They are slow to open when the season comes around. Consider it an old fashion ski resort because it hasn't been updated probley since the late 70s however you are not dealing with the crowds such as blue mountain and bear creek.
  • Definitely a place that's great to ski/ snowboard at. The trails are great and not too crowded. The ski patrol and employees are great and really friendly. A great place for beginners as well.
  • Excellent the snow was great. Second day open my first runs of the season. The Tunkhannock was really nice. Hopefully the weather holds out and they will get a lot more runs open in a few days
  • Family had a fun afternoon on the slopes! Not too crowded. Got in 12 runs.
