Blue Mountain A True 4 Season Resort

Recently named one of Lehigh Valley’s Top 10 Fastest Growing Companies, winner of the Who’s Who in Business, and numerous other awards throughout the year, Blue Mountain Resort is quickly becoming a leading four-season resort in Eastern Pennsylvania. Known mainly as a premier ski and snowboard destination in Northeast Pennsylvania, Blue Mountain continues to add “green season” amenities that rival its winter business. Blue Mountain is home to 164 acres of skiable terrain and boasts the highest vertical drop in the state at 1,082 feet.

In addition to the 39 ski trails, 16 lifts and 39 tubing lanes, Blue Mountain maintains a full service mountain top restaurant, 21 downhill bike trails, three disc golf courses, four ropes courses, three outdoor laser tag fields, action archery and weekly summer camp for kids. The resort hosts weddings, corporate meetings, teambuilding and special events throughout the year and recently added catering to the list of amenities, all which have helped shape Blue Mountain as a true four-season resort.

The vision began in the early 1960’s when Ray Tuthill purchased more than 300 acres of land with dreams of opening a ski area. Fifteen years later the first five trails were opened to guests and the ski hill was named “Little Gap.” In the early 1980s, Little Gap continued to expand, doubled its terrain and took on another investor, Bruce Ebert. In the late 80s “Little Gap Ski Area” was renamed “Blue Mountain.” In 2007, Tuthill passed away, and his daughter, Barbara Green stepped in as President and CEO. Under her leadership, the resort has invested over $15 million to improve the slope side experience. Three new lodges were built. In conjunction with the lodges, Slopeside Pub & Grill, a new fullservice indoor/outdoor restaurant was also built. Slopeside Pub and Grill attracts visitors year-round making it the second-largest segment of the business.

Blue Mountain Resort is conveniently located 90 minutes from both New York City and Philadelphia. The event venues at Blue Mountain offer 100 mile views of the Pocono Mountains with both indoor and outdoor options available. Blue Mountain Resort updated their event rooms for corporate events and weddings accommodating up to 500 people and is able to offer complete packages for showers, rehearsals and cocktail parties. Plans to expand don’t stop there. Blue Mountain Resort is currently undergoing development to add 135 guest rooms for onsite accommodations for guests year round. The resort expects to break ground on the hotel condominium and the spa/hot springs projects in the spring of 2018.
