SKIING AND SNOWBOARDING
TANNERSVILLE, Pa. – Say goodbye to the Camelback Ski Area – and hello to the Camelback Resort.
Like a growing number of ski areas throughout the country, this popular 52-year-old ski mountain, which is nestled here in the Poconos between the New York City and Philadelphia consumer markets, has been undergoing quiet change. Owners say that by adding other winter snow activities – and even summer water activity – they hope to transform Camelback to a four season vacation resort from an average winter ski slope.
Now, the largest piece of the winter family vacation puzzle is almost in place. On April 1, Camelback will open its new 453-room Camelback Lodge and its Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark, the largest indoor adventure waterpark in the Northeast. The estimated $163 million hotel and waterpark project, combined with Camelback’s winter and summer operations, will make Camelback the most interactive mountain resort in the United States.
