About the Ski Resort

Blue Mountain is the closest major ski area to Allentown, Pa., and Philadelphia.

The mountain is open for night skiing on all trails and has 100 percent snowmaking capacity.

With 30 slopes and the highest vertical in Pennsylvania at 1,082 feet, Blue Mountain's trails offer something for everyone; from lazy, easygoing, nonstop runs well over a mile long to the Challenge, with its two headwalls and electrifying drop.

Razors Edge, the newest 3,000 foot double black diamond trail with it's automated snowmaking system, has proven to meet everyone's expectations.

A children's program designed to introduce youngsters, ages 4 to 12, to the exciting world of skiing is offered.
