Blue Mountain is located 75 miles northwest of Philadelphia and is a little over an hour drive. This ski and snowboard area makes the most of the 1600-foot mountain it sits on, squeezing out 1082 feet of vertical terrain making it most in the state by 10 feet. 33 trails and 9 lifts are offered, 100% of which is lighted for night skiing. You can make frequent top-to-bottom laps thanks to the hi-speed 6-pack chairlift and hi-speed detachable quad. Already excellent snowmaking continues to be improved, most recently with a new 1250 hp air compressor and an increased water supply. Dreamweaver, the new intermediate trail will be open for skiing and riding in 08-09. And that is just a part of the $3.1 million dollar expansion and improvements Blue Mountain made over the summer!
