I’ll be honest, I’m not an expert skier – or even close to tackling a double black diamond trail for that matter. But I do love a great ski getaway, whether it’s for a nice long week across country (I live in New Jersey) or nearby in the Poconos.
I grew up skiing at a local mountain, but it wasn’t until years later that I planned my first ski vacation at Shawnee Mountain in Pennsylvania. Shawnee is a great ski mountain for all skill levels. It seems to be designed for beginners, as most of the trails are a beginner or intermediate, but it also offers a few expert trails as well as a terrain park for more advanced skiers. If a few in your family or group don’t ski, Shawnee offers a snow tubing park, which is a lot of fun. Once you’re done with the slopes, there’s plenty to explore in the nearby Shawnee-on-Delaware and East Stroudsburg area, including great shopping and dining.
