3 Reasons Why Winter Is the Best Time to Visit the Poconos

For some, winter means trying to escape the cold and snow. However, if you’re someone who embraces everything this snowy season is about, there’s no better time to visit the Poconos. Winter is truly one of the best times to visit the Poconos, and it’s not hard to see why.

Nestled in some of the best communities in the Poconos are the Cove Pocono Resorts. Our romantic resorts are the ideal home base for anyone looking to experience the magic of this winter. There are countless reasons to visit the Poconos in the winter, but here are three of the top ones.

World-Class Skiing

One of the biggest adventures that draw visitors to the Poconos year after year is its phenomenal skiing. If you’re looking to go flying down the side of a mountain, make your way to Montage Mountain to try your hand at their 27 trails that range from beginner to expert.

For a more laid-back skiing experience, go cross-country skiing at Pocono Palace Resort. Our East Stroudsburg location offers free cross-country skiing to guests at all three of our resorts. 

Memorable Snowy Adventures

On average, the Poconos get about 50 inches of snow a year. All this powder means the outdoor adventures are endless, including right at our Pennsylvania resorts. In addition to cross-country skiing, Pocono Palace also provides guests with snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and snow tubing opportunities.

If you’re looking to get out and explore more of the winter wonderland, we recommend visiting nearby state parks like Hickory Run State Park or Tobyhanna State Park. Both spots are known for their ice skating rinks and snowmobiling trails.
