Picture This: Hitting the Slopes at Shawnee Mountain Ski Area

This Pocono Resort Is a Destination for Outdoor Winter Fun

Bundle up and embrace that brisk mountain air, because it’s peak season at NEPA’s ski slopes. As soon as we saw the snowflakes flying, we packed up the skis (and the camera) and headed out to Shawnee Mountain Ski Area in East Stroudsburg.

Shawnee Mountain features 125 skiable acres and 23 slopes, from gentle beginner hills to challenging black diamonds. They also have two terrain parks and a snow tubing area. This family-friendly resort is known for their children’s programs and beginners’ packages, so it’s an awesome spot if you’re just getting into the winter sports scene.

Shawnee Mountain Ski Area is going the extra mile to keep visitors and employees safe this winter. Check out their COVID-19 Safety Guide to plan ahead for your trip. And remember, capacity is limited this season, so you might want to save your spot by purchasing tickets and rentals online.

We hopped on the lift and made the most out of the fresh dusting of powder. Check out some of the scenes from our day on the mountain.
