“Don't waste your time or money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Why spend time and money to go here when you could spend the same for lift tickets at Hunter Mtn in the Catskills, or better yet, just go to VT.

“Garlic Festival at Shawnee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

I didn't realize how many types of garlic there are and how different each one tastes. We had the opportunity to try garlic dips, garlic oils, garlic cheese, garlic chocolate chip cookies (a little rough), but didn't try the garlic ice cream. There was a petting zoo, tattoos, jugglers, Live Bands (Rock , blues, mountain). A large variety of food that didn't have garlic: crepes, arepas, kielbasa, french fries, bbq and pulled pork. And craft vendors. Oh can't forget the pickle guys from NY. Olives stuffed with garlic, pickled mango, pickled pineapple, pickled pickles. It was a nice day spent in the poconos.

“Good variety of ski trails and snow tubing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

I first learned how to ski here... and pretty well. Great place for beginners but as I progressed there were also many challenging blue squares and black diamonds for me to try!! Definitely no Vermont or Colorado Ski Resort but very good for day trippers in the NJ area.

“Great family experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

Shawnee has one of the top rated ski schools. Great for beginners and families wanting a place to enjoy together. If you have that teen who likes terrain parks this place has two, one smaller than the other to fit every skill level.
