“Surprisingly fun or small hill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Big Boulder makes the most of what they have. If you're already in the Poconos, it's a fun quick trip. I definitely wouldn't drive two hours to ski here, though

“Lifetime Boulder skier”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

I learned to ski at big boulder in 1968 and started teaching as an instructor in 1981. I love the mountain because it is what you make it. Great conditions and low crowds even on most weekends, especially in the morning.

Nice ski resort. Close to our time share in the Poconos. Always a good time. Hubby loves snowboarding here, and the whole family looks forward to our yearly vacation.
