Montage Mountain Resort
Scranton, Pennsylvania
Vertical drop:1,000 feet
Base elevation:969 feet
Peak elevation:1,960 feet
Skiable acres:140
Longest run:1.2 miles

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 27 trails. The layout of the mountain is naturally separated by ability level.

During 2021, Montage Mountain upgraded to an RFID lift gates and lift ticketing system, simplifying the process of getting on the slopes.

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.
