As I write this blog the snow continues to fall outside my office window. I think my seasonal depression is about to kick in as I’m definitely a fair-weather minded person.

But no matter how hard I find it to believe,  there are definitely those who embrace the snow and the winter season. I guess living in Eastern Pennsylvania I should too. Growing up I was an avid skier and loved being the first to hit the slopes and the last to leave.

With two great mountains in our region perhaps it’s time to strap the skies back on and hit the slopes. Bear Creek Mountain Resort offers a serene setting with amenities second to none. If you are looking to spend the night you can’t go wrong with their resort. Even if skiing isn’t your “thing” their spa is great for the ladies and restaurant and lodge is sure to offer a great meal and drinks in a superb winter setting.

I can’t forget Blue Mountain Ski Area which offers the highest vertical drop in Pennsylvania just shy of 1,100 feet. Offering 39 trails, there is sure to be a run that can accommodate skiers and boarders of all levels.

Here at Discover Lehigh Valley we even make it that much easier for those like me that you might have to pry out the door on a snowy day with our Stay & Ski packages. These hassle-free packages offer accommodation though various Lehigh Valley lodging partners and offer tickets to the resorts. So what’s your excuse? I know I don’t have one now. Embrace the snow Lehigh Valley it’s coming whether we like it or not.
