Dropping 600 feet from the summit to its base along the pristine Lehigh River, Jack Frost Ski Resort in Whitehaven is a winter sports paradise. The mountain offers 20 trails including 2 terrain parks and 8 black diamond slopes. There are 12 lifts for quads, triples and doubles, a Magic Carpet lift and 2 tow lifts for the snowtubing park. The longer runs and higher drop make Jack Frost a true skier’s mountain.
For young skiers, the resort houses a Snow Monsters program for children as young as three and refresher courses for experienced but out-of-practice skiers and snowboarders. They also have just about all the gear you need for a great day on the slopes available for rent or purchase at Big Jack’s Pro Shop and there is also a repair and tune-up service inside the rental shop.
When the mountain starts taking its toll, refuel at one of the many quick-stops with burritos and tacos, burgers and fries or pizza. You can even grab salads, sandwiches, coffee and sweet treats at Java Jacks, but when you’re ready to call it a day and sit down and relax, ditch the skis and head into the Frosty Toboggan for a casual table service meal, or stop by and toast an exciting day on the mountain with drinks at Fiddler’s Fridge.
