“Great skiing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Very well groomed and great for intermediate and beginner skiers. Very few expert trails. The high speed quad lift is very nice but does get crowded at peak times.

“Kids had a great time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

The Sunday night special for lessons, rentals, and lift tickets was fantastic. Get the coupon at home before you leave. It was icy, but all in all they had a very good time. The snow tubing was also very good. Two hours and they must have done 50 runs.

“A Good Time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

On a recent stay in the Poconos with friends in their time share a close friend and I spent a day (his first time skiing) at the Shawnee Mountain Ski Area. We both agreed that it was a good experience and would definitely ski there again.

The ski area was notably small but by no means overcrowded (we were there on a Sunday too). The trails were on the easy side, even for the Poconos. All the staff on the mountain were personable and helpful, even joking around and giving ski tips. The price is similar to other resorts in the area and rentals were available.

The lodge was a no frills but comfortable area that had a bar and at least two quick serve restaurants (if I am not mistaken, there may have been a 3rd). The food was nothing special by any stretch but got the job done. The bar was well stocked and the bartender easy to talk to. There was even a band playing at one point in the bar area.

On a side not, there were a lot of children and families on the mountain and seemed to be a very child and family oriented place.

To sum it all up, we were satisfied and would go back. The staff was hospitable, the food average for cheap fare, and the bar relaxing. I say worth checking out, especially if your not a highly skilled skier or for family and children.

“Good for Beginners”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Shawnee is a good place for beginners. Once you graduate from the Bunny hill there are some good Easy runs to experience. The staff at the rental and lift windows and counters were all very friendly and service was good. My only complaint is that the mountain is overrun with snowboarders and while this could be okay, the majority of the ones we saw were inexperienced (and a bit crazy) and really posed a hazard to others.

“Fun, not too crowded night skiing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

I went skiing here on a night pass February 9, 2012. The place had a decent crowd but the slopes didn't feel too crowded. There were enough options to keep beginner and more advanced skiers happy. Good experience.
