Jack Frost is probably my favorite ski destination in the Poconos. Despite the fact that they only have a vertical drop around 600 feet, the trails are very fun (even though they are a little shorter in length). The snow conditions are always great no matter how crappy the weather, and East Mountain has some great views along with a couple of steep hills. There are never lift lines, which makes it not so bad that the trails are a little short. I always enjoy Jack Frost, and have gone skiing here more times than anywhere else. The drive from SE Pa is so easy too since it is almost entirely highway.
