First Winter Coat

The temperature has dipped in the Poconos and Shawnee Mountain has been open for almost three weeks! We are really excited for the winter season. Guests have been in contact with us scheduling various ski and room packages (the best way to save). Last year’s winter left a lot to be desired and it looks like this year will bring a whopper of a ski season.

The first major snow storm will take place this coming Wednesday bringing a virgin layer of fresh powder, just in time for pre-x-mas skiing! What’s better than a mid-week snowfall for travel? The roads are perfect for driving by the weekend, the mountains become covered and white, and the slopes are fresh. All you need now is some hot chocolate at the end of a brisk day on the mountain (and Shawnee has plenty of that!).

Just in case you didn’t know, Shawnee Mountain is only minutes away from The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort. Our ski mountain has been honored with numerous accolades, but most notably, it has been called the best family ski mountain in Pennsylvania.

If you have been itching for the winter to come, rest assured, it is here and the season has already begun in the Poconos.
