WINTER BLUES WITH GRAPHICSPocono Mountains Family Resort Features Array of Seasonal Winter Activities to Keep Guests Busy in the Cold

Winter means many things at Woodloch Pines, a four-season, all-inclusive resort located in Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains that offers something unique with each change of the weather.  As the autumn colors leave the trees and mild temperatures make way for frosty weather, the spirit of the approaching holiday season can be felt in the air.  With seasonal offerings such as Yule Log Hunts, festive decorations, a plethora of holiday-themed family games and contests, and carriage rides through an illuminated nature trail complete with light shows, there is no shortage of merry good cheer at this Poconos resort.

After the holiday season comes to a close, however, Woodloch continues to fully embrace the freeze, transforming itself into a winter wonderland and going so far as to make snow so that guests can enjoy cold weather favorites even when Mother Nature does not cooperate. Snow tubing, snowshoeing, ice fishing, and ice skating are among the most popular outdoor activities offered.  This year, Woodloch will not only feature skating on the property’s very own lake but also on its brand-new ice skating rink where guests can coast under a canopy-covered 9,000 square feet of ice.  The pavilion will feature the EZ Glide 350 synthetic ice that will afford a four-season skating experience outdoors.

Other seasonal activities include:

  • Winter Olympics- Get ready for some mountain bowling, snow shovel passing, and snow tube switch-a-rooing in the quest for a coveted Woodloch gold medal.
  • Winter Archery Tag – Friends become targets in this game set amongst the resort’s stunning Pocono backdrop.
  • A Brand-New Escape Room – This team-building adventure game has groups of 8 to 10 players solving a series of puzzles during a set amount of time in order to unveil the secret plot and “escape” from the setting.
  • Some of the family resort’s popular amenities – Enjoy a zip-line and climbing wall, go-karts, bumper cars, game shows and trivia, a Broadway-style theme show, and the Indoor Pool Complex complete with slide and splash zone.

If all of that is not enough, Woodloch Pines is the official resort for Ski Big Bear at Masthope Mountain.  Located only eight miles from Woodloch, the partnership allows guests a 50% discount on lift tickets   Ski Big Bear is known for their family-friendly atmosphere and is the perfect place to learn with their personalized ski instruction and user-friendly trails.

“We hold winter close to our hearts here at Woodloch Pines,” explains John Kiesendahl, owner and president of the Poconos resort.  “The snow makes our property look even more beautiful, falling like powdered sugar on the treetops and the lake.  Some of our guests race outside, wanting to be the first one down the snow tube run or skating across the ice.  And then we have others who prefer to stay inside, enjoying hot chocolate along with some of our homemade baked goods while they cozy up by the fireplace.  It’s perfect because there’s something for everyone, and it’s all right here for the taking.”

As an added bonus, winter weekends feature some of the family resort’s lowest prices of the season with all-inclusive rates starting at $190 per adult, per night.  To obtain more information or to book a stay, please visit www.woodloch.com, or call 1-800-Woodloch.
