Located just a few miles from Penn State University, Tussey Mountain is a small ski area tucked away into central PA. And we do mean central PA: it’s right in the middle of the state.
Tussey Mountain doesn’t offer a huge number of trails (seven), or a huge vertical (500 feet), but it does offer inexpensive lift ticket prices. Cheap lift tickets are especially palatable to college kids, so it’s no surprise that Tussey Mountain’s main clientele is students from Penn State. Midweek discounts sweeten the deal. But the resort is also popular with adults and families.
Tussey has a terrain park and also offers 1,000-foot long tubing runs.
