Found in the Poconos of Pennsylvania, sister resorts Jack Frost and Big Boulder have received $5 million in improvements over the past two years. This winter, skiers will find changes at Jack Frost’s East Mountain. The Elevator Slope has been expanded and will be groomed daily, making the expert slope more accessible to skiers. Trees will be cleared at the bottom of the Challenge Slope in order to ease lift access.
The half pipe at Big Boulder has been relocated and is now within view of the ski lodge, providing spectators with a good view of snowboarders in action.
The rental express and e-ticket programs first launched at Jack Frost are now available at Big Boulder. Guests may also now rent equipment for the entire season; prices start at $150.
