How Shawnee Mountain Ski Area Gets Set for Some Serious Snow Making

sknow-your-priorities-lgSensational slopes take some serious polar-know-how. With winter snow sport season is on the horizon, Shawnee Mountain Ski Area weighs in on what it takes to be one of the top ski and snowboarding facilities in the Pocono Mountains.

Snowmaking improvements were a “top priority” over the summer season for this family and beginner friendly destination. As part of a multi-year, multi-million dollar snowmaking upgrade project, they score high marks with over 3000 feet of new snowmaking pipe on Tecumseh and Lookout trails plus portable, big throw energy efficient fan guns have been added for Tomahawk trail and the base area.

Purchasing new equipment proves a positive approach with 100 pair of new Elan skis, 150 pair of Dalbello ski boots, 50 Flow snowboards and 100 pair of Flow snowboard boots. Add on the ability to outfit over 4000 skiers/riders and Shawnee Mountain Rental Shop is one of the largest in the USA!

Telling timing is tops, as new props include ALGE wireless electronic timing equipment for its popular NASTAR recreational ski racing program and its youth development racing school, both offered Saturdays and Sundays during January and February ski season.

Now that Shawnee’s shared some serious purchase power, let’s shower you with holiday shopping savings to take on ice shavings at the Shawnee-on-the-Delaware resort! The ease of online access gives a little grab and go incentive to discount lift ticket, rentals and beginner packages.
