Alpine Mountain Ski Area is located in the Poconos in northeastern Pennsylvania. The resort is one of the oldest ski areas in Pennsylvania, and also one of the least visited, making it perfect for new skiers and families looking for a lot of snow time and not a lot of crowds.
Expert skiers might not be impressed by Alpine Mountain’s 550 foot vertical, but snowboarders will find a terrain park and halfpipe, and there is snow tubing, too. Most of the trails are wide and not too steep.
Alpine Mountain has a full service lodge with cafeteria, pizza parlor, ski shop, rental and repair shops, and a ski school. A lounge overlooking the slopes offers a casual menu, drinks, and live weekend entertainment.
