Overlooking Lake Wallenpaupack in the Pocono Mountains, Tanglewood Ski Area has hosted family and novice skiers each for the last 30 years. Locals may remember the resort as Paper Birch Mountain. The family-operated business turned over in 1972 to a development corporation by the name Tanglewood. The resort was sold again a handful of years ago, retaining its name. Tanglewood’s trail system features 100 percent snowmaking and full grooming, and all nine runs are well lit for night skiing, six days per week until 10 P.M. The terrain is much easier and less congested than bigger Pocono areas, and the rates more affordable. The resort issues credit for a future visit to any skier not satisfied, within one hour of ticket purchase. The resort has also added snowtubing, which runs Wednesday through Sunday. 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.

Great place to take the kids on a noneventful weekend. Great beginner trails, and the intermediates are nice too. Not a large mountain by any means, but a great starter for beginners. Great price too!
