Big Pocono Ski Area opened way back in 1950–51, running sporadically for four years before hurricanes Connie and Diane shut things down. Millions of gallons of water were dumped on the mountain, causing massive runoff and destruction and taking the lives of more than 50 local residents. Here’s some of what $25 million over 10 years brings to the mountain: new terrain; increased uphill lift capacity and lighting; improved main lodge and expanded facilities; two impressive terrain parks and a halfpipe; and a separate snowtubing park to top it all off. Camelback is not the steepest of Mid-Atlantic mountains. It is, however, a well-oiled resort with a good variety of beginner and intermediate terrain throughout 33 runs and 800 vertical feet. There’s lots of elbow room on the mountain’s impressive 150-plus skiable acres, and its 13 lifts (including two high-speed quads) work hard to keep you on the trails and not in line. 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.

Biggest area around, and well run. The hardest in the Poconos to ski all runs in a day. Lines at certain spots get long on holidays, but generally a good, large acreage mountain. Many big-city types because of its location, with "aggressive" more-speed-than-brains teens, sometimes making it a bit nerve racking to ski with the family. Big-resort feel to it, with great brew pub down the street.
