HOLIDAY MOUNTAIN SKI AREA

The 30 tubing lanes span five acres in this Sussex County resort that’s only a stone’s throw from Crystal Springs Resort. Kids must be 42 inches tall and at least five years old to fly down hills.

845-986-4940

This small mountain gives first-timers a leg up when it comes to making their mark. The route’s about 600 feet long, so it’s a great option if the clan decides to pack in their skis, too. You must be 42 inches tall and 12 years old to ride solo. Passes are $25 for a two-hour session.

SHAWNEE MOUNTAIN

401 Hollow Rd., East Stroudsburg, PA
