Lehigh Valley is home to two thrilling mountains that make the perfect setting for your winter adventures. No matter your age or skill level, these mountains have a range of activities and difficulty to please everyone in the family.
Experience Pennsylvania’s highest vertical at Blue Mountain Resort— a great spot for skiing, boarding, and snowtubing. Here, you’ll find 39 trails for all abilities with 16 lifts, including three tubing lifts. When you’re ready to warm up, take a break at one of the outdoor fire pits or inside at one of the lodges. Slopeside Pub and Grill is known for its incredible scenic views and tasty burgers, sandwiches, and local flavors.
Bear Creek Mountain Resort offers a little bit of everything for the whole family, whether staying overnight or just spending the day! Ski, snowboard, and snow tube over 86 acres of slopes, trails, and terrain parks. The Spa lets you unwind from the adrenaline, while the heated pools and hot tubs let you stretch your muscles before you settle in or head home. Three on-site restaurants will satisfy your appetite and any hard-earned carvings.
New to the skiing scene? No worries. Both resorts offer equipment rentals and lessons for all levels. Bear Creek offers private lessons, adult and youth discovery packages, youth development programs, women's clinics, and more. Blue Mountain's children and adult snowsports learning center offers private and group lessons for all abilities and ages.
Be Merry. Lehigh Valley has two trails to “cheers” to the mountain you conquered… the Lehigh Valley Wine Trail and Lehigh Valley Ale Trail. You decide which tempts you more.
Eat. After some wine or beer tastings, you may need to refuel with dinner. Many palette pleaser choices to select from as Lehigh Valley’s food scene is exploding with flavor. From farm-to-table to upscale, gourmet and cozy restaurants and cafés, you won’t go hungry. But if pizza has your heart, Stefano’s Sicilian Grille near Blue Mountain will do the trick, or Gio Italian Grill near Bear Creek.
Stay. Warm up after a day on the slopes with special savings packages for Stay and Ski enthusiasts. Or you can skip the packages and head right to your favorite nearby hotel, B&B, or inn complete with a beautiful countryside view.
So plan on discovering Lehigh Valley this winter and get in on the hills, thrills, and chills!
