Ski Big Bear: A Local Favorite

Ski Big Bear offers some of the best skiing in the Poconos with its 18 trails, seven lifts, and 650 feet of vertical. The mountain, which is located just 20 minutes from Silver Birches, is covered annually in 50 inches of snow, and when snow doesn’t occur naturally, snowmakers ensure that fresh powder keeps the trails up to fluff. Skiers of all ability levels will enjoy a broad range of trails, everything from beginner trails to double black diamond. Plus, cross-country ski trails are available, too! And, if you’re looking for the best resort and ski combination in the Poconos, check out Ski Big Bear and Silver Birches Resort’s “Stay and Ski Packages!” The packages offer savings on lodging at Silver Birches, lift tickets at the mountain, breakfast vouchers and more.
