Pocono Mountains

The Pocono Mountains have seen more snow and colder temperatures this winter compared to the last few seasons.  In some instances, some single snowstorm accumulations were more than all of last season’s snowfall amounts combined.

Every mountain I’ve visited this season in the Poconos has told me how the snowfall amounts have been so great for their ski resorts this year.  The increase in snowfall in the Pocono Mountains this season has skiers and riders taking full advantage of ski resorts offering close to 100% of their trails open.

Snow predictions for a February snowstorm for the Northeast

However, if you take a broader look at data and numbers this winter for the Poconos it has not been really that cold compared to past history. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) temperatures for the Pocono Mountains, this season is actually warmer than usual! https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/cag/

Even more interesting is the fact that the amount of precipitation and snowfall for the Poconos this winter does not even crack the top ten for wettest for the region according to NOAA.  https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/cag/

Despite the raw data numbers, thanks to mother nature, the Poconos are having their best snow conditions in years and skiers and riders are loving it.

  1. I don’t think those photos are from the Poconos. Too many conifers. That Ramrod trail isn’t in the Poconos.

    Nice to hear that the Pocono’s are having a good season.

  2. This was where it all started for me skiing. Two class trips in 8th grade to the Poconos to ski. First at Jack Frost, then Big Boulder. The first one was weird because your day ended taking a lift to top.
