Skiing and Snowboarding

With the winter storm coming friday/saturday, sunday will be one of the best days to ski/snowboard this season. I started snowboarding 3 years ago. Camelback was where I made the most progress as they have a few great beginner trails, and it is still my favorite resort in PA. They do have equipment rentals but it will be quicker and better quality to rent them at ski shops near by. I will be heading up there Sunday morning and return after dark. If there are 8 or more people would like a lesson, I will host one at noon on one of the beginner trails. There will be a post ski/snowboard dinner at Red Robin, Bartonsville PA. 

I created a spreadsheet to keep track of how many people are coming, what their levels are, and plans to carpool. Shoot me a text if you have any question. Look forward to a great snow day!

    I attempt to snowboard (most of the time is spent on my butt since I'm still learning) and would love to get out more. Does anyone know what's happening in February

    Is anyone coming from the west Chester area or could I park my car along the way and meet anyone coming from Philly!? Totally want to take advantage of the snow Sunday.

      I think I'm backing out. I had a pretty bad drive home from work last night and just don't think I want to be back on the roads. I honestly don't even know if the state of emergency will be lifted tomorrow, which means you aren't supposed to be on the roads. Chester county is under a blizzard warning until 6am tomorrow and the totals in my area have been upped to potentially 30 inches.

      A friend in Lancaster told me police there are writing $300 tickets to motorists out on the road.

  • Shawn

    Anyone wanna do a repeat to Blue Mountain?

    January 25, 2014

  • Chris K.

    I'd be down to go sometime. I've been boarding for years and could help teach some.

    November 23, 2013

    • Morgan

      I would be interested in getting better at snowboarding if you're offering to teach. Is that a possibility?

      December 17, 2013

    • Chris K.

      Yeah sure.

    I'm down, I just don't know if I will have a job by Jan to be able to afford it. Can't commit yet, but I love Camelback and the brewery!

    December 4, 2013

  • Dung

    we will start off at camelback mountain and i will post up the event soon!!!

    December 4, 2013

  • Eric

    I have no objections to Blue Mountain.

    November 30, 2013

  • Chris K.

    Im all for blue. Its one the closest and best

    November 30, 2013

  • Shae

    are there skiiers and snowboarders interested in going??

    November 30, 2013

  • Shae

    personally i can only commit to something for blue mtn since i have a free pass for there and i really dont know where I'll be financially in jan. i would love to try a different spot just cant commit to that.

    November 30, 2013

  • Eric

    I'll toss out a suggestion:

    January 12th. Camelback mountain. After skiing food and drink at the brewery not far from the mountain.

    November 30, 2013

  • Anna

    If we decide on Blue, I'm going tubing! =D

    November 27, 2013

  • Eric

    Blue, Camelback, and Elk are my favorite mountains in the Poconos. I'd suggest early-mid January. Blue opens this weekend, but there's only a couple of trails open.

    I'm open to suggestions on where to go. I'm mostly familiar with Blue, Camelback, and Mt Creek, and they should all be about a 2 hour drive or less for everyone. I agree with Blue being one of the better ones.

    November 25, 2013

  • Chris K.

    In my opinion Blue is the best. Let me know if anyone has an idea of when they want to go.

    November 25, 2013

  • Shae

    Know where we're headed yet?? I got a one time lift pass to blue mtn in palmerton
