Full review

Jack frost is a beautiful family oriented ski area with the best program for teaching kids to ski/snowboard. Check out Snow Monsters yes this is the title of their program for teaching kids to ski/snowboard. For $85 they they take your kid and babysit them for three hours and after three hours most of them will be skiing and do turns thur pylons. You do not have to be present,yes you may ski other slopes during their lesson.However you must have a cell phone if your child does respond to the lesson or having problems.I enrolled my grandgaughter who was 7 years old and never been on skiis.I was pleasantly surprised to see her performs turns thru pylons without falling + she rode the chair one time.The instructors are very very good,they have patience,lots of humor and create an enjoyable learning experience for the kids.At the end of the lesson they receive a certificate to show what they learned during the lesson. The downside to Jack Frost is it's popularity which means large crowds on the week-ends.Jack frost is a popular destination for the Philly Crowd.Alternatives are get there early for a 10:00am lesson not sure if there is 9:00am lesson. Better yet try Sunday people are late starters on a Sunday. People get up latter,church,brestfast,etc FYI:The Big Two which is Jack Frost/Big Boulder's snow making team was consulted for the Winter Olympics
