Jack Frost Big Boulder, located in Blakeslee, Pa., is the perfect place for families to keep their blood flowing during the sedentary winter months. Kids as young as 3 can participate in group lessons where they can mix and mingle with other kids their age and get a knack for sliding down a snowy mountain. The Snowmonster program (which includes equipment) is for kids ages 3 to 10 and includes a snow pass and lesson. It is $62 during the week, $85 during the weekend, and $87 on holidays.
Families can also take a break from going up and down the mountain standing up by giving snow tubing a try or feasting after a fun-filled day at Boulder View Tavern, where kids can nom on things such as fried pickle chips or a basket of chicken tenders! Just a few miles away is Split Rock Resort, where families can go bowling, see a movie, swim in the pool, or splash around the indoor water park — H2Oooohh.
