Jack Frost Ski Resort
- 434 Jack Frost Mountain Rd,
- White Haven 18661
- (570) 443-8425
Jack Frost includes nine lifts that take you around the mountain to any one of 20 pristine trails. The trails vary by skill level, with beginner to black diamond difficulties available. 20 slopes are spread out across two terrain parks.
This was the first commercial ski resort in Pennsylvania, and it was here that snowmaking was first used successfully in a commercial application.
When Peak Resorts bought Jack Frost and Big Boulder ski areas, they decided to roll them into one as JFBB, with one website, one Instagram, and one facebook page. Don’t let it confuse you: these are two separate ski areas. One is in Lake Harmony, the other in White Haven, and they about 10 miles apart.
Replacing and consolidating multiple lifts at both resorts will improve reliability and enhance the overall guest experience. Their lifts have been there for a long time, and it was time for an upgrade, and Vail is building a total of 5 new-quad-lifts to the two mountains. This should dramatically increase lift capacities at both resorts, which have primarily relied on double-chairlifts at their mountains for many years.
Both were purchased by Vail Resorts in 2020, so any and all changes are for the better!
Jack Frost Mountain provides a variety of inviting terrain with a summit elevation of 2000 feet, a base elevation of 1400 feet, and a vertical drop of 600 feet.
21 different slopes include a ski school learning slope, 4 beginner slopes, 6 intermediate slopes, 8 advanced slopes, and one Terrain Park. There are 9 lifts: 1 quad, 2 triples, 6 doubles, and 1 ski carpet.
Big mountains and deep powder are great for advanced skiers but can be horrible for beginners and kids. It’s hard to get more bang for your buck at any other resort. The accessibility, laid-back vibe, price of lift tickets, snowmaking, terrain parks, and Big Boulder’s night skiing combine to make JFBB two perfect resorts for beginners, intermediates, and families.
There are six eateries, including Java Jacks for coffee and The Frosty Toboggan Bar & Grill.
