At Pocono Talk our main goal is to encourage discussion about the Poconos, its that simple!Â One way we hope to achieve this is to not only talk about the Poconos but to actually show you the Poconos as well through photographs and video.
Our first video to show you is a collaboration with Ken English of PoconoPreview.com that provides a general introduction to the Poconos and some comments from our very own Eric Kimes of Pocono Talk.Â They recently visited Alpine Mountain Ski and Ride Center to get a preview of what it looks like before the snow starts to fall.Â The video is available at PoconoPreview.com and is currently located on the front page.
About Alpine Mountain
Alpine Mountain is one of the smaller skiÂ areas in the Poconos but is probably one of the most affordable as well.Â It is located off Route 447 in Analomink, PA and is adjacent to the community of Timber Hill, how would you like toÂ walk just a few blocks to go skiing!Â Â IfÂ skiing is not your thing they alsoÂ they also have a half pipe, terrain part, and snowtubing so there is bound to be something for everyone.Â There are some great deals if you order yourseason passÂ before October 31st.Â Adult Pass – $319Â Â Junior/Senior Pass – $219Â Â Â Student Pass – $169
Personally I am not a skier, or a snowboarder.Â I know, I know, I live in the Poconos and its pretty much expected but I am originally from the Philadelphia area and my extent of winter sports was limited to snowball fights.Â Â I have tried to learn since I moved here butÂ it didn’t go that well, so for now I’ll stick back and guard the hot chocolate and make sure it…stays hot… :)Â
Someone who does know a thing or two about skiing is my husband Eric and I’m sure once we get into the winter season he’ll be posting plenty of ski related stories.Â Â Have you ever gotten a chance toÂ go to a ski resortÂ in the Poconos? If so please post and share your story as to where and when, I would love ideas for additional ski areas to feature as upcoming topics.
