Shawnee is located near the New Jersey border.

Beginners and intermediates will feel most at home at Shawnee, with plenty of beginner terrain near the base lodge. Shawnee has a strong Ski School offering a number of programs, including many focused towards kids. Shawnee also features a Snow Tubing Park with 6 lanes, serviced by two carpet lifts.
