Picture This: Montage Mountainfest Featuring the Gin Blossoms

Legendary Rockers, Pond Skimming and Crazy Costumes Cap Off Wild Winter Event at Montage.

It’s been a relatively mild winter in NEPA, but that’s still not enough to stop the fun on Montage Mountain. The popular Scranton ski resort hosted its annual Mountainfest on Saturday, March 7. This year’s event included an exclusive concert by multi-platinum, alternative rock legends, Gin Blossoms.

Of course, the slopes and snow tube lanes were open for business. And, for those looking to pack in a little extra ice-cold fun, Mountainfest also featured its famous costume pond skimming event. Daring skiers and snowboarders, dressed to impress, spent the day taking on the icy abyss.

The full-day of festivities featured indoor and outdoor bars, a vendor village, giveaways and more. And, in addition to the Gin Blossoms rocking the mountain, live, local bands were on hand to fuel the fun.

We just couldn’t pass up the party of the season, and we happened to bring the camera along. Take a look.
