Alpine Mountain in Pennsylvania takes home the 2013 OnTheSnow Visitors' Choice Award for Best Family Resort in the Mid-Atlantic. The Pocono Mountains provide the picturesque location for this welcoming ski area. Alpine offers 120 acres and 21 trails of varying difficulty in an inviting environment that’s not too big, but not too small—it’s just right. The ski area also has 100-percent snowmaking and is served by five lifts including two quads, one double and two surface chairlifts. For a fun non-skiing activity take the family to the snowtubing hill.

After a long day on the slopes, head to the lodge and warm up with a cup of hot chocolate or choose a snack. Accommodations are available at the resort. Other amenities include a cafe, pizza shop, ski school, ski shop and rental shop.
