Montage Mountain Resort

Scranton, Pennsylvania

Vertical drop:1,000 feet
Skiable acres:204
Longest run:1.2 miles

In November, 2006, Montage Mountain was purchased by a Philadelphia-based firm and changed its name to Sno Mountain. Montage was previously owned by Lackawanna County. The newly-named Sno Mountain opened for the 2006-2007 winter season in mid-December, 2006, with 193 new snowguns.

In the past, Montage Mountain was known for its good snowmaking and being generally less crowded than other Poconos resorts. The resort has been popular with upper intermediate and advanced skiers, with plenty of steeps to challenge both and a respectable 1,000-foot vertical. The layout of the mountain is naturally separated by ability level. Snowboarders and skiers are also well served by an extensive terrain park.

Sno Mountain also has a tubing park.

    I went to Montage this weekend and did some night skiing. They have recently added a new feature called airboading. I didn’t try it myself, it looks very fast and is done in a specific area, so it doesn’t seem to affect skiers. I didn’t try it because like most skiers, I went to ski and isn’t interested in doing much else. The conditions were excellent, I managed to ski on most of the trails in the short time and encountered very few icy patches, even late night. There were thankfully no lines to any of the lifts. It was still a long, slow, cold ride. They really need to put a high speed lift on the longest trail, and more lights as well. Staff were all friendly. I enjoyed the visit and will go again if I were in the area.
