Some of the very best skiing in the Pocono Mountains.I've been skiing for 33 years includingAspen,Killington with most of my skiing at Elk Mountain on Northeatern Pa.

However Camelback is my favorite due to the scenery, steep slopes and well groomed slopes. If you ski it early like 9am-11am its like skiing on a carpet. This primarily pertains to the steeper slopes such as Marjie Delight,Rocket,ASP and the Hump.These change from fairly easy to most difficult after 11:00am-12:00pm,due to the snow being skiied off and exposing the ice and hardpack.If you are not a strong skier stay away from these after 11:00am or you could get hurt.

Regarding food prices,food is expensive at all Ski areas. You can always pack a lunch which is what many do,besides skiing is an expensive sport.
