Spring Mountain has operated since 1963 as a cost-effective family ski area for the nearby Philadelphia area. The ski center sits just 528 feet above sea level on a small plateau in Western Montgomery County. It’s a good place for skiers to pick up the sport, with private and group instruction for all ages. With little snowfall during most winters, Spring relies heavily on snow guns that fire around the clock.
All trails are open under lights nightly, but most skiers come for the afternoon, particularly school and church groups. The ski area’s selling points are its instruction, learning environment, and one-hour proximity to Philadelphia. The lodge has a cafeteria and fireplace, but no overnight accommodations aside from year-round, on-site camping. This eTrail contains a thorough description of the resort including driving directions, mountain statistics, trail profiles, extensive lodging & dining information, travel tips, and much more.
