Full review

Shawnee mountain has many pros and cons included at the mountain. The lift that most people like to ride (the terrain park lift) is only a double and takes 15 minutes to get to the top, which is obviously a con. The mountain recently got a high-speed quad, which is a pro. It is also located well, nestled perfectly on the Delaware River. But, there are no black diamonds running from top to bottom, and, is mainly a snowboarding moutain. But, it is cheap. But, if you think about it, just drive an extra 15 minutes to Camelback or Blue Mountain; you will not regret never paying a visit to Shawnee.
