Tanglwood Ski Area
Tafton, Pennsylvania
Vertical drop:415 feet
Skiable acres:35
Longest run:0.75 miles
Trails:9

A small ski area in the Poconos, Tanglwood caters mostly to families. Tanglwood is an “inverted” resort, with the lodge located at the top of the mountain. Two double lifts and one beginner tow service skiers and snowboarders, while another tow lifts services Tanglwood’s snow tubing area. Tanglwood offers night skiing on certain nights of the week. Tanglwood has been in operation for more than forty years.

Note: Tanglwood was not open for the 2007-2008 winter season. Over the summer of 2008, new owners purchased Tanglwood, and re-opened the area for the 2008-2009 winter season. However, Tanglwood was once again closed for the 2010-2011 winter season.

November, 2011 update: As of November 12, 2011, it appears unlikely that Tanglwood will open for the 2011-2012 winter season. DCSki has been unable to reach Tanglwood’s web site, and readers report that the ski area once again changed hands in the fall of 2011. Before making a trip, please contact the resort to verify operating conditions.
