With nationally recognized Ski-Wee program to professional Ski and Snowboard instructors – Shawnee Mountain has been the Poconos’ leader in safely getting people on the slopes for decades.
It gets even better, leading the learn to ski initiative at Shawnee Mountain is a man who travels here each winter from Austria. Heinz Oberhauser will be turning 77 years old this March. He has been with Shawnee Mountain for over 35 years, and is a level 3 PSIA instructor which he has maintained his whole career at Shawee Mountain. He spends the winter here in the Pocono Mountains from October to March and when the ski season wraps up, he travels back to Austria.
