|RoldoBlaque21||Im from delaware and me and my loyal boarding buddies drive up to PA to hit blue. ive only been to Blue and Camelback and i wish i could get camelback groming at blue. I dislike camelback as its real "plain" but blue is usually like guranteed to be 65% ice patches if its not after a snow day|

Blue can be fun since they have interesting trails and a good lift system, but their lack of any sort of knowledge of snowmaking/grooming kind of anger me. I also find their park to be inferior.
Jack frost is fun, especially if there is new snow. It is smaller than blue for sure, but they have an open boundaries policy with lots of off trail glades and woods. my buddies and i ususally go way past east mountain at frost and find tree runs with cliffs that rival stuff in vermont, although much shorter.
The parks at jack frost, even though smaller than blue, are much better design wise. However, drive 5 minutes to big boulder and you have the best park in the state.
Camelback has more variety and also a better park. snow conditions and grooming are much better.
Bear creek is super tiny, but once again, their snowmaking and grooming blows blue out of the water. Parks are bigger and contain much more, well set up features.
Elk is by far the best, super long, well designed and interesting trails. Some of the best snow conditions i have ridden anywhere.
Shawnee is also a cool place to check out once or twice. Nothing too challenging, has a different feel to it, hard to explain, but i like it.

|abngirly||really? which mountains would you recommend? I go because with my schedule it's just the most convenient at this point, but if I had a solid recommendation I'd be willing to try another. I might be going to Jack Frost the first weekend of March.|

|rgrwilco||Blue is actually my least favorite mountain in PA. Im just dealing with it this season because i got an awesome deal on a season pass.|

|abngirly||yea Blue is my regular mountain, I usually go about twice a week on fridays and sunday nights. I've just heard too many people complain about other mountains around here so I figure if I'm happy with a mountain I'll just stick with it for now while I hone my skills in between bigger mountain trips. I'll be up at Killington the last weekend of February and then going out to Vail in March. Praying we get some snow in the meantime!!|
