Full review

Just want to congratulate Camelback on being one of only two ski areas in PA to remain open to the end of March/early April (the other being Big Boulder) and certainly open latest now, since BB has closed. March 24th was idyllic, with fresh powder and no lines; conditions among best in season. April 2, (weekend) was crowded as usual but still.... just awesome to ski this late in season. Since I haven't skied here in maybe 7 yrs, the black diamonds now seemed flatter (goes with experience) and I was surprised that Cliff Hanger (double black) is actually easier (although longer) then the other single blacks diamonds. Still, the spread of trails allows you to feel like you're on a bigger mountain. I look forward to getting back next year.
