Peak elevation:1,960 feet
Skiable acres:140
Longest run:1.2 miles
Trails:26

Scranton, PA may be the backdrop for NBC’s hit sitcom The Office, but it’s also home to a real ski mountain. Advanced skiers and boarders will stay occupied with Montage Mountain’s 1,000-foot vertical and healthy selection of steep trails (including White Lightning, which Montage Mountain calls “2nd steepest in the East,”) but skiers and snowboarders of all ability levels will find plenty of terrain across 26 trails. The layout of the mountain is naturally separated by ability level.

A bit of historical trivia: Previously owned by Lackawanna County, Montage was purchased in 2006 by a Philadelphia-based firm and changed its name to Sno Mountain. However, that name didn’t stick, and the resort is once again called Montage Mountain.

Montage Mountain also has a 10-lane tubing park and a terrain park.

As of October, 2020, Montage had not yet announced its COVID-19 plan for the 2020-2021 winter season. Visit the resort’s web site for the latest information.
