Outdoor Adventures

Crisp mountain air, snow-covered landscapes, and the invigorating feeling of being surrounded by nature’s winter beauty – Skytop brings the joy of winter with various outdoor activities. 

  • Skiing and Snowboarding: Strap on your gear and hit Skytop Ski hill. Skytop offers skiing and snowboarding opportunities for all skill levels. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a first-timer, the thrill of gliding down the snowy Ski Hill is great for guests of all ages.
  • Snowshoeing Trails: For those who prefer a slower pace, the snowshoeing trails at Skytop provide a serene escape into the winter wilderness. Explore the woods at your own pace, surrounded by the tranquility of a snow-laden forest.
  • Ice Skating: Lace up your skates and take a spin around the in-door ice skating rink. It’s a classic winter activity that never gets old, especially when surrounded by the stunning Pocono Mountains.
  • Ice Fishing: Once our 72-acre lake is frozen over, enjoy fishing like never before as you catch largemouth bass, perch, pickerel and many others. A truly unique experience. Weather permitting.
  • Snow Tubing: A wintertime favorite, join us on our snow tubing hill for an activity the whole family will love. Bundle up and be prepared to eat some snow!
