Full review

I have been to alot of ski resorts all over the country and was very suprised how good this Poconos mountain is. Great ski school, good terrain (for the poconos) for adults, decent vertical (longest in PA), they must have made a ton of snow b/c the conditions were great, the lift waits were normal for a weekend, parking was not bad, electronic locker system and was shocked to see that they had a completely ticketless lift process (essentially, everyone has an EZ Pass card on them that sends a signal to an electronic turn style that lets you through as you walk up to the lift). I recommend this over a trip to Mountain Creek, Hunter or Windham (from New York).
