Camelback is a popular resort with skiers, and it’s not hard to see why. Its 39 trails, spread evenly across a wide mountain, offer a lot of variety for beginner and expert skiers alike. Camelback also has a snow tubing park with single and family-size tubes. The downside to Camelback’s popularity is that it can be crowded on weekends.

Camelback’s generous snowmaking system keeps the trails covered with snow, and all but one trail are lit for night skiing. The ski area has 377 total snow guns, including 196 tower guns.

Terrain park enthusiasts will enjoy Camelback’s CBK Park, which runs from the top to the bottom of the mountain. It features a jump line, rails, and boxes ranging in difficulty from advanced to expert.

A number of lodging options are available near Camelback. An on-site lodge includes an indoor water park.

Camelback has instituted protocols for the 2020-2021 winter season to protect guests during the COVID-19 pandemic. Social distancing will be enforced on chairlifts, limiting chairs to guests arriving from the same party or two singles at opposite ends of quad chairs. All lift tickets must be purchased on-line.
