Tanglwood Ski Area
(Click here for the official web site for Tanglwood, or scroll below to read DCSki's complete profile...)
|Resort Overview - reported by M. Scott Smith, DCSki Editor|
A small ski area in the Poconos, Tanglwood caters mostly to families. Tanglwood is an “inverted” resort, with the lodge located at the top of the mountain. Two double lifts and one beginner tow service skiers and snowboarders, while another tow lifts services Tanglwood’s snow tubing area. Tanglwood offers night skiing on certain nights of the week. Tanglwood has been in operation for more than forty years.
Note: Tanglwood was not open for the 2007-2008 winter season. Over the summer of 2008, new owners purchased Tanglwood, and re-opened the area for the 2008-2009 winter season. However, Tanglwood was once again closed for the 2010-2011 winter season.
November, 2011 update: As of November 12, 2011, it appears unlikely that Tanglwood will open for the 2011-2012 winter season. DCSki has been unable to reach Tanglwood’s web site, and readers report that the ski area once again changed hands in the fall of 2011. Before making a trip, please contact the resort to verify operating conditions.

Nov. 2010. Looks like Tanglwood is closed again. Website down, not part of SkiPa.com, and a google search provides nothing.

From Facebook entry on Nov 16, 2010. What I guessed above has come to pass. Tanglwood will be closed this year.
"Tanglwood Ski Area and Winter Park -- I am sad to announce that Tanglwood will not be opening for the 2010-2011 ski season. The sale of the property is still under negotiations and will not be ready for skiing this winter. It is anticipated that plans will be in the works for 2011 season. Thank you to everyone for making last season one of the greatest."

Article in First Tracks Online (www.firsttracksonline.com) dated May 7, 2012 discussed how Tanglwood is being liquidated. Chairs, groomer, snow guns, etc. being sold off to other ski areas. So I guess that's that! RIP Tanglwood.

Confirmed Aldee's post. I am acquainted with the person who bought the resort. After careful consideration he decided to liquidate the assets. I was there today to rescue an old chair left for scrap. The chairs are gone along with the bullwheels and towers. I saw no grooming machines either so I'm assuming they are gone as well. Most of the Ski Patrol supplies were moved to Ski-Big Bear last season. I did not go downhill so I don't know what, if any, snowmaking equipment is still left.
