Recently we spent a day at Camelback Mountain Resort, thanks to Momtrends. While our writer Maytal had checked out Camelback when Camelbeach Water Park had opened, I had never been to the resort. However, my husband had actually skied there in the early 90’s. We were so excited and offered a chance to go either skiing or snow tubing. My oldest child, Mr. B. chose skiing, so my husband took him and I took my middle child, Miss A., and my youngest, Mr. S., to go snow tubing. We were a little worried going to the resort because the weather was warmer – however, Camelback is one of the only ski resorts to offer 100% snowmaking on all 166 acres of terrain! They have 1200 plus snowmaking guns which can cover 2 acres, with one foot of snow in one hour. So, there was plenty of snow for us and the weather wasn’t super cold (I think it was in the 40’s).
Check out our day on video:
My oldest was given a ski lesson for around an hour and a half. His instructor was really patient and encouraging. My husband couldn’t believe how well he did. We were so excited that he loved it and was actually good at it. We’re already trying to figure out how to get him skiing again soon.
Camelback offers Kids Half-Day Programs, single session Learn To Ski/Ride packages, 90-minute beginner lessons & private lessons. My son loved his lessons, while my husband opted just to ski (even though it had been a while since he’d been on skis). My husband said the skiing staff was excellent (one guy even carried our son’s skiis so my husband wouldn’t have to carry our son’s skis and his own)
While Mr. B was having success on the mountain, I had gone snow tubing with the two little ones.
My daughter had a great time (thanks to Divina of Dancing Hotdogs), as when we went up the mountain, my little guy refused to tube down. Since he has special needs, I wasn’t so surprised.
We walked down the other people mover – luckily we were there before the other side of the snow tubing was going on.
After lunch at the Big Poconos Eatery (you can see that tour in my video), we headed to Aquatopia. I drove down this time (parking is free). My two little ones loved it. Enjoy some of our photos from our time there!
