    I've never really been over there... not a bad idea.

    BIG BOULDER in the Poconos may open this weekend.

    snowmaking to begin at
    big boulder park


    boulder gives back opening day

    Our snowmaking crew is getting prepped to fire up the guns in anticipation to open this weekend at Big Boulder Park. The goal is to start up the fan guns tomorrow morning and work around the clock taking advantage of the cold temps and having a park on Saturday for our twelfth season of Boulder Gives Back.

    Stay tuned for updates and exact times. We will be posting our progress throughout the next 36 hours to keep everyone in the loop and hope to open sometime Saturday afternoon. This will go down in history as one of the earliest openings on record for Big Boulder Park and we are excited to get the season underway!

    Here's a breakdown on the local charities and what you can do to help:
    Toys for Tots: Bring a new, unwrapped toy valued at $25 or more and receive a complimentary snow pass
    Food Pantry: Bring 15 non‐perishable (valued at $25) foods. Donate items like canned meat or fish, canned soup, juice, pasta, vegetables, cereal and rice. Please do not include items that have expired or those in glass containers and receive a complimentary snow pass. Please check the expiration dates‐we will not accept expired foods
    Guests that come to Big Boulder without any of the above items can purchase a snow pass for $25.

    Our plan is to remain open for Sunday from 10:00am -8:00pm with $25 lift tickets and closed midweek. We will take advantage of every opportunity to make snow and expand our terrain offerings as the temperatures allow.

    Check out the conditions page for the latest snow, trail, lift and weather information. For more information log onto jfbb.com 24/7 for the latest conditions, web cams, entertainment calendar, blogs and sign up for our email blasts for special deals and the inside scoop.

    K snow report says that Great Northern to Rime may open this morning.

    One way stairs beats the hell out of two way stairs.

    change to report: If our snowmakers make good progress, we could see Upper East Fall open later this afternoon and we do not expect Upper Great Northern to open today so expect two way traffic on the Peak Walkway as outlined below.

    Gonna take a ride up at lunch and see what they're running for guns. I see Indian summer and conifer on the webcam. Have to imagine Challenger and Ralph's are going to. They could have double the terrain that Killington has.
