5 Winter Outdoor Activities in PA

If you love skiing in the wintertime, make sure to visit Elk Mountain Ski Resort. The resort is home to 27 slopes on 180 acres of land. Open from December to April, Elk Mountain offers visitors lessons and rentals for skis and snowboards. Warm up with a drink or an appetizer at the Winter Garden Restaurant that is open seven days a week.
Montage Mountain Ski Area
Feel the rush of adrenaline as you ski the slopes at Montage Mountain. The area has 26 trails that offer spaces for beginners and steep areas for more skilled skiers. Montage Mountain is home to more than just great skiing. While there, check out both snow tubing and new winter sport: air boarding.
A Winter Sleigh Ride
About an hour drive from Carbondale in White Haven is Daisy Field Farm. This family-owned farm is a wonderful place to visit in the winter for their horse-drawn sleigh rides. Along the way, you will see plenty of wildlife including deer and wild turkeys. Plan ahead, and they can arrange for a bonfire after your ride to complete your experience.
Another great outdoor activity to try this winter is snowshoeing. Sightsee and discover the 50 miles of trails at Promised Land State Park in Greentown, PA. Snowshoes are available to rent at the park office from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm. There must be 6 inches of snow or more to borrow their snowshoes.
Eagle Watching in Hawley, PA, at the Delaware Highlands Conservancy is a must when you visit this winter.
