It also doesn’t require a lot of equipment to get started either. So what are you waiting for? In order to get going, you’ll need to don warm Pugs apparel, including a winter hat and water-resistant gloves. You’ll also want to have waterproof boots, a toboggan, ski wax and a pair of Pugs affordable sunglasses or goggles to protect your eyes from the snow glare. Once you have those items on hand, consider making snow boot tracks to the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania.


There are several places in the region that offer a combination of tobogganing runs, snow tubing chutes and sledding hills. Plus, the area typically gets about 50-inches of natural snow fall a year. The most tends to fall in January and February. In addition, the majority of the places that offer opportunities to participate in winter sports have artificial snow machines on premise to handle things when Mother Nature decides to take a day off.

If you do decide to don your Pugs gear and go tobogganing in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains, we have a few suggestions to make. For starters, consider putting a stop at Blue Mountain onto your trip’s itinerary. 


Located in Palmerton, it is the only place where you’ll find a professional luge track that’s close to 2,000-feet long. Furthermore, it’s also home to 21 snow tubing lanes, 39 ski slopes, a half dozen terrain parks and a big air bag.


Restaurants are available onsite and overnight accommodations are available nearby at places like The Lodge at Woodstone Country Club. The lodge features grand interiors, serene views, in-house massage services, a game room, restaurant and a few rooms with built-in Jacuzzis. So you’ll be able to thaw out and relax at the end of your winter sports filled weekend.


Of course Blue Mountain and The Lodge at Woodstone Country Club are not the only places in the Poconos where Pugs fans may enjoy winter sports. The list of other places to consider includes, but doesn’t melt away with the following:

  • Shawnee Mountain (Shawnee on the Delaware)
  • Big Bear/Masthope Mountain (Lackawaxen)
  • Camelback Mountain (Tannersville)
  • Skytop Lodge (Skytop)
  • Alpine Mountain (Henryville)
  • Big Boulder (Lake Harmony)
  • Fernwood Resort (Bushkill)
  • Jack Frost (Blakeslee)
