Located in Tannerville, Pennsylvania in the Pocono Mountains region, Camelback Mountain resort is about a two – three hour drive from New York City. A full mountain resort, it offers not only skiing and snowboarding on 37 trails (also lit for night skiing), but has also the largest snow tubing park in the country. If you’re staying at Camelback Lodge, there’s also an indoor waterpark, perfect for kids if they still have energy after a full day of skiing.
Lift tickets start at $53 on weekdays and $67 on weekends and holidays. There is a bus you can take from the Port Authority Bus Terminal that bring you to two locations close to Camelback: Mt. Pocono or Mt Airy Casino. Check with Martz Trailways for pricing and schedules.
