Want to do and see something different this weekend? Head on up to Blue Mountain Resort for their 2018 Winter Fest being held in celebration of the resorts’ 40th Anniversary.
Says Melissa Yingling, Blue Mountain Marketing Manager, “Winter Fest was designed to get people outdoors in the winter months to have some fun and create memories that will last a lifetime. Free for all ages and full of a variety of events and activities, the festival is perfect for those who don’t ski and snowboard but are looking for something to do to beat the winter blues.”
This year’s festival is on Saturday, January 27th from 11am – 6pm and Sunday, January 28th from 10am – 2pm.
The festival takes place at the Summit Lodge, located on top of PA’s highest vertical and offering the most picturesque views of the Pocono Mountains. Guests looking for something to do with friends and family will find everything they need at Winter Fest, including:
• 40th Anniversary Birthday Bash – Saturday, January 27th at 5pm
• USA Olympic Luge Team – Saturday, 12pm – 5pm & Sunday 10am – 2pm; try out the track, ages 10+!

Skiing, snowboarding, and tubing will be available at normal weekend rates. Guests do not have to ski, snowboard, or tube to enjoy Winter Fest. Kids in particular will certainly enjoy the ice slide, something they’ve probably never slid down before.
