Poconos Ski, Snowboard and Snow Tube Attractions
Whether you're an accomplished skier or a newbie, there are many Poconos ski areas and resorts to match your skill level. No worries if you're traveling with non-skiers because most Pocono ski resorts also offer snowboarding and snow tubing activities for those who don't want to try out their "ski legs".

Camelback Mountain Resort
One Camelback Road
Tannersville, PA 18372
Camelback boasts 33 lighted trails covering all skill levels from beginner to expert. A newly expanded rental shop features a beginner-friendly rental process. There is a full ski school with group and private lessons as well as a children's learning center. Onsite babysitting is offered for children ages 12 mos-4 yrs.
Camelback Mountain offers lots of action for snowboarders and snow tubers.
Insider Tip: The snow tube park sells out quickly on weekends and holidays. If you get there for the 9am opening, Camelback guarantees you will get into a snowboard session that day.
Another cool thing about Camelback..When you're done hitting the slopes and in need of some major retail therapy, The Crossings Premium Outlet Mall is just down the road!
