Big Boulder Ski Resort Review

Big Boulder Ski Resort is located on Big Boulder Lake in Lake Harmony, Pennsylvania. It is joined together with Jack Frost Mountain and the two mountains can be skied for the price of one.

Snowboarding is allowed on all slopes and they have two terrain parks. Snow tubing at Big Boulder is done on any of the twenty different chutes serviced with five lifts. Another mountain attraction is the night skiing.

The runs at Big Boulder are accessed by 9 lifts, 5 double chairs, 2 triple chairs and 2 surface lifts. The skiable terrain is 55 acres with snowmaking covering all of it. The longest run is .2 miles. The runs are 40% beginner, 35% intermediate and 25% advanced. The vertical drop is 475 ft.

Some of the lesson packages offered at JFBB are adult lessons for ages 9 and older, private lessons, Snowmonsters for groups of kids 3-10 and adaptive lessons offered on weekends. They also have workshops and junior race programs.

A few years back Big Boulder Ski Resort made a commitment to snowboarders and decided to fill the void of quality terrain parks in the mid-Atlantic. Out of this commitment came Big Boulder Park. It has since won acclaim by TransWorld Snowboarding and is said to be one of the best in the east. They have since opened a second park, One, on Tannenbaum, is more for the beginners and families to enjoy. This park is in the Jack Frost area of the combined resorts.
