Fun Winter Activities in the Pocono Mountains

With nearly 200 ski slopes and more than half a dozen ice skating sites in the region, the Pocono Mountains is known for the classic winter sports for all experience levels available. But if you are looking for unique snow activities in addition to the classics, Skytop Lodge is the Poconos luxury resort for you.

Here are just a few of the many winter activity options available at Skytop Lodge this season.

Ice Fishing

Fishing at Skytop doesn’t stop when the lakes freeze over. Our private trout stream is brimming with freshly stocked trout year-round. Additionally, nearly all the fish you can catch from our lakes during the summer can be caught through the ice too. There’s fantastic fishing for largemouth bass, pickerel, and perch throughout the winter months.


Do you love speed and feeling the wind rush against your face? Then you will love tobogganing at Skytop. Remember the childhood wonder of sledding as you careen down the slopes atop one of our toboggans? Our Adventure Center is home to one of the last remaining toboggan runs in the region, offering a Pocono Mountains experience you are unlikely to find elsewhere.

Since 1928, Skytop Lodge has been the premier Pocono Mountains resort for winter fun in the snow. As part of our commitment to preserving the beautiful Pocono wilderness, all of our snow activities are weather permitting.

Ready to come discover the snow adventures that are waiting for you at Skytop this winter? Contact us to book your stay today.
