I’m planning on surprising my 8 year old son with a ski day on Friday. He’s only been to the Whitetail ski class once, so he’ll need ski school.
I haven’t been on the slopes in 2 years. I miss it. Bad.
I have been thinking Camelback because I’m quite familiar with it, a bit nostalgic and it’s pretty far north. Does anybody know if they are still making snow? They haven’t responded to my tweet from earlier today. Overall, I find it harder to get information about the Poconos than the Alleghenies.
Then I saw this: Snow expected for the midstate on Friday
That’s tempting of course, because I could go first thing to Roundtop on Friday morning rather than Thursday night. How is the base? I’m of the opinion 2-3 inches of fresh snow probably makes up for a lot, right?
What would you do?
Roundtop says they will be making snow Friday and Saturday. If that is the closest place to you I would do that. Looked like they had a solid base on Sunday. The cams there show a decent amount, so take a look at them tomorrow afternoon.
Also…if he is going to stay in the beginners area look at the “learn to ski package” I believe you can get a mountain passport for next season at this point, which is a great deal. I’ve never been to camelback, but for beginners the snowtime resorts IMO are the best option, largely because the beginning areas are somewhat separate from everything else.
I wound up at Blue Mountain, because other places were booked for ski lesson reservations. I’ll probably write it up on Monday.
