Winter Wonderland: January Activities in the Poconos!

As winter blankets the picturesque landscape of the Poconos in Pennsylvania, January brings forth a myriad of activities that showcase the region's natural beauty and offer a perfect escape for those seeking adventure or relaxation. From snow-covered mountains to charming small towns, the Poconos in January is a winter wonderland waiting to be explored.

Snow Sports Extravaganza: The Poconos are renowned for their winter sports offerings. Ski resorts like Camelback Mountain and Jack Frost/Big Boulder transform into bustling hubs of activity, welcoming skiers and snowboarders of all skill levels. Whether you're an adrenaline junkie conquering black diamond slopes or a novice hitting the bunny hills, the Poconos have something for everyone. Our personal favorite is snow tubing with the kids, especially night tubing at Camelback! Plus be sure to check out Big Boulder's brand new 'Bubly Snow Tube' park!

Charming Small-Town Vibes: January in the Poconos is an excellent time to explore the charming small towns that dot the region. Towns like Jim Thorpe come alive with winter festivities, cozy cafes, and boutique shops. Strolling through the snow-covered streets, visitors can experience the warm hospitality and unique charm of these communities.

Indoor Waterparks for Family Fun: For families looking for indoor activities, the Poconos boast some of the country's best indoor waterparks. Places like Kalahari Resorts and Great Wolf Lodge provide a tropical escape from the winter chill, with thrilling water slides, lazy rivers, and water play areas for all ages.

Cozy Cabin Getaways: Maybe we're just lazy, but our favorite way to winter is to embrace the warmth of a crackling fireplace, picturesque views, and the comfort of a home away from home. That's why we created Poconoland Cabins in the first place!
