Full review

Jack Frost is one of the few mountains with gladed terrain, and the only one in the Poconos to have any kind of off-piste terrain. If it snows and there is a base of natural snow, Jack Frost is a lot of fun which skis much bigger than it is on paper. If there isn't natural snow, which is most of the time, then you're stuck with the same handful of relatively identical groomers which are fairly short and flat. The steep pitches are very, very short. The quality of their manmade snow is ok at least, and their terrain park is always well maintained and interesting (made by the same crew that does Big Boulder's parks). Jack Frost is also relatively uncrowded, and is a much mellower scene than Blue Mountain or Camelback, which get very crowded, especially on weekends and when conditions are good. For a beginner, its a great place to learn. For experts it will probably get boring quick unless they've had the aforementioned giant dump of snow opening up the woods. But if they do have natural snow, the combination of off-piste terrain and no lines can make for some really great days. The best days I've had on the snow in PA have been here, for example.
