Shawnee Mountain makes snow - a lot of it - and sometimes claims the earliest Poconos season opening date. The resort is one of the most popular in the Poconos and also has a great reputation as a family resort. As a result of Shawnee’s popularity, expect lift lines on holidays and weekends. Shawnee is located near the New Jersey border.
Beginners and intermediates will feel most at home at Shawnee, with plenty of beginner terrain near the base lodge. Shawnee has a strong Ski School offering a number of programs, including many focused towards kids. Shawnee also features a Snow Tubing Park with 6 lanes, serviced by two carpet lifts.
Snowboarders and freestyle skiers will find two terrain parks at Shawnee. Shawnee was one of the first East Coast resorts to cater to snowboarders.
Shawnee continues to invest in snowmaking modernization, with the majority of its snowmaking system fully automated.
