Ever wonder what happens at the best ski resort Poconos has to offer when the snow melts? Although Skytop Lodge is known for unforgettable skiing on pristine slopes with stunning natural views, we also offer an abundance of year-round outdoor activities.
Here at the Skytop Lodge, as the winter fades away, the natural world comes alive. Trees bud, flowers blossom, and many of our native wildlife species wake from hibernation. Spring is the time to exchange your ski boots for hiking boots and explore all the warm weather activities at Skytop Lodge. In addition to over 30 miles of trails for hiking and nature walks across our 5,500-acre estate, there are several other outdoor activities available to guests of the Skytop Lodge.
You can add some excitement to your vacation at the Skytop Lodge Adventure Center. Overcome over 3,000 feet of obstacles to complete our Treetop Zipline and Challenge Course. You will scale ladders, brave elevated bridgeways, maintain your balance on suspended logs, and fly through the treetops on seven different ziplines in approximately three hours.
If you would rather keep your feet firmly planted on the ground, consider signing up for one of our paintball sessions. Each session uses three separate fields and can last for up to three hours. Bring out your inner survivalist as you dart between trees and bunkers on our woodsball field. Hide amidst the detritus and debris as you hunt your opponents on the Junkyard Field. Or, mosey on up for an old west shootout on our western inspired field. You can even practice your aim or give younger kids a feel for shooting paintball–without the risk becoming a target–on our Paintball Target Range.
If you are looking to enjoy the amazing natural environment of Skytop Lodge without the adrenaline rush, we have plenty of options for you as well. Swimming, sunbathing…relaxing. Or maybe you find serenity with while casting a fishing rod. You can fish our private Poconos stream that is freshly stocked with trout. There are also opportunities to cast your line for largemouth bass, pickerel, perch, and more. We even offer guided Fly Fishing trips.
Whether you are an adrenaline lover or looking for a quiet escape, at SkyTop Lodge, we have something for everyone all year long. The best ski resort in the Poconos offers nature enthusiasts something for all seasons. Contact us today to book your outdoor escape.
