The Poconos Mountains ski season offers plenty of new excitement across all its ski areas this winter.


At Big Boulder Ski Area and Jack Frost Mountain, expect big upgrades, as $500,000 was recently invested in enhancing park equipment and structures. A new Peak Discover Program gives visitors three step-by-step, packaged lessons and continued lessons available at any Peak Resort in the Northeast, so the experience doesn’t end when you leave the Poconos. Plus, the ski area’s military discount program expanded to provide more benefits to active-duty, retired and discharged members of the military.


At Blue Mountain Resort, a new online store allows riders to purchase passes and rent equipment ahead of arrival and then scan their mobile passes once arrived for a faster gateway to the slopes. Additionally, a new trail is in the works, set to complete for next season. For now, the rental fleet has been updated, replacing $400,000 of equipment.


At Shawnee Mountain, new rental equipment is available to more than 4,000 skiers, making the rental shop one of the largest in the country. New complimentary charging stations also mean you never have to worry about running out of battery while on the go.


Camelback Mountain boasts two, new, on-site ski-in and ski-out restaurants, plus a new terrain park and new trail; 15 acres have been cleared for a new beginner terrain.


Lastly, Ski Big Bear has new offers for local residents to attract nearby skiers, and all travelers can take advantage of new packages courtesy of local lodging partners. Plus, season pass holders get new perks and discounts as well. Through January, save on skiing and snowboarding lessons.
