Picture This: Scenic Chairlift Rides at Blue Mountain Resort

Take a Ride High Above the Fall Foliage

We love ski season and all, but we’re not quite ready to let go of these sunny autumn days and colorful leaves just yet. We headed to Blue Mountain Resort in Palmerton and boarded the chairlift for a ride above the slopes. And we couldn’t have timed it better. It’s the peak of fall foliage season in the Poconos, and the mountains were blazing with red, orange and gold.

There’s still time to go leaf peeping. Blue Mountain offers scenic lift rides every Saturday and Sunday through November 1, weather permitting. The ride lasts about 22 minutes round-trip, although you can stop at the top to visit Slopeside Pub & Grill.

Tickets are $10 per person and include unlimited rides for the day and a $5 voucher to Slopeside Pub & Grill. Order your ticket online and check out our photos for a glimpse at the stunning scenery.
