Wallenpaupack Business Spotlight: Ski Big Bear at Masthope Mountain
Looking for a great place to ski or snowboard in the Pocono Mountains? Check out Ski Big Bear at Masthope Mountain located in Lackawaxen, PA. Ski Big Bear creates a winter experience for skiers, showboarders and snow tubers by ensuring the mountain is covered in fresh snow - they are very serious about snowmaking! Ski Big Bear has an impressive snowmaking system to create a winter wonderland outdoor experience so that skiers, snowboarders and snowtubers have the best time on the mountain!
Ski Big Bear at Masthope Mountain has 18 trails for skiing and snowboarding, tubing, a terrain park, 6 chairlifts and 2 magic carpet lifts, 650' of vertical and approximately 50 inches of snow. Ski Big Bear is constantly updating and enhancing their equipment with state of the art snowmaking including some powerful snow guns.
Skiing at Ski Big Bear is a family experience. My kids learned to ski at Ski Big Bear. They were 3 years old when they started and around 4 when they really grasped the concept. We LOVE to hit the slopes now and have some good old fashion family time with no distractions. It is really great to just take in the fresh air and have time to chat on the chairlift. Here's a video of my oldest daugther's first time on the slopes (she is 7 now).

Once I am cold (it is usually me that is the first one), we head inside to the Lodge and enjoy lunch at The Summit Restaurant or The Scramble Cafeteria. The prices are very reasonable - especially for a ski area!
The Snow Sports School is something that should not be missed. Sign your kids (or yourself) up for a private lesson - it is money well spent. They will learn the techniques needed to succeed and it will limit frustration (mainly yours).
On a final note, if you forgot something (or your Edgie Wedgie broke - critical to kids learning to ski - it holds their skies together at the tips so they can "pizza" easier), the gift shop has everything you could possibly need and it won't break the bank!
I hope you enjoyed my Wallenpaupack Business Spotlight: Ski Big Bear at Masthope Mountain. See you on the slopes!
