I do not believe the 12/28/06 post is about Big Bear in PA, perhaps Montana?
This Big Bear is a small family oriented place. They have a nice brand new lodge with cafetaria and a seperate pub and restaurant. Not a bad place to start the kids off. A couple of trails may still be open, we were there last Friday and Saturday when it was in the low 40's. A couple of nice B&B's in Hawley, and some motels and decent restaurants. Not too far is a bowling alley, indoor amusement center and movie theater in Honesdale for non-ski days. Both BB and Tanglwood normally have tubing but neither was open yet. Very low-key and laid back, and off the beaten track.
