Enjoy the snow to any extreme at Jack Frost or Big Boulder Ski Area. This was the first commercial ski resort in Pennsylvania, and it was here that snowmaking was first used successfully in a commercial application. There are many festivals and events that keep the ski areas busy year-round.
Big Boulder and its neighbor, Jack Frost, offer a great vacation deal for families. Families can try skiing (downhill and cross-country), snowtubing, snowboarding, motorsports, and paintball and stay in a vacation home on the property. Even better, kids under five stay free. Both resorts also offer babysitting, ski lessons in winter, music festivals in summer, and nightlife all year long. Jack Frost has TRAXX, a 15-mile course through the woods with divisions for motocross, ATV, and BMX bikes. This course is available for people ten and up. Bring your own equipment, but you can rent bicycles only. Also at Jack Frost is night-time snowtubing on Saturday nights.
We had a great time at Jack Frost Big Boulder tubing with the kids. We left the 1 year old with grandma and drove over with the 8 and 14 year old. It is pretty organized and the kids had a blast. There are plenty of chutes and you can go down with your child. We wanted to go all together but that is not allowed. We tubed for about 3 hours, stopping to get hot cocoa and warmth from the outdoor fire.
