I've been skiing here on and off for the past 20 years and I must say, Blue Mountain is the best ski area in the Poconos. I returned for the first time in years last winter and was very impressed with the new terrain features and proposed planned expansion for the upcoming season. The high speed lifts from the base lodge are great if you want to get a lot of vert and turns in for the day. When the mountain gets crowded, I prefer the slower but steeper double chairs above Main Street. Barney's Bumps is a great run for anyone working on tackling moguls. I appreciate that Blue Mountain is the only place in the area that offers quasi-groomed, moguled terrain. They have made several improvements to the upper and lower lodges that make lunchtime much more tolerable than other ski areas in the NYC area. It's still a relatively small mountain, jam packed with skiers and intermediate level groomed terrain, but for the Pocanos, you ain't getting much better!
