From skiing and snowboarding to ice skating and dogsledding, the Poconos Mountains in Pennsylvania offer a wide variety of winter activities any adventurer will enjoy.


The Great Wolf Lodge has an excellent indoor waterpark open year-round with entry included with your stay. The park features 13 waterslides, six play pools and a four-story water fort. There is also a spa on the premises, a great escape for adults featuring a variety of massages, manicures and skin therapy services. If you’re looking for skiing and snowboarding options, the nearby Alpine Mountain provides a great option for novices and experts alike.


Snow tubing is an activity anyone can enjoy. It requires no special equipment (besides weather-appropriate clothing). At Camelback Mountain, you don’t even have to worry about walking back up the hill or carrying your tube as they have a snow tubing lift they refer to as the “magic carpet.” Camelback is also a great option for skiing and snowboarding. If you’re curious about the variety of difficulty offered, their online map clearly shows the range of beginner, intermediate and expert trails.


After you’ve had a fun day on the slopes, The French Manor Inn and Spa is the perfect, relaxing way to warm up and soothe your sore muscles. The spa hosts Wine Lover’s Weekends in the fall and winter with complimentary wine tastings on Saturdays. They also have wine and art events every Wednesday for $35 per painter. In the winter months, there is a fireside couples massage available, a great option for couples looking to thaw out and relax by the fire.


Whether your next winter adventure in the Poconos Mountains includes snow, spas or waterparks, it’s going to be an experience you will never forget.
