Earlier this week, to the dismay of some and delight of many, Woodloch Pines Resort guests and staff were greeted by snow! The first significant amount we've gotten this winter, this is a definite reminder of the inevitable: the winter season is upon us.
While snow and wintery conditions are not new given the resort's location in the beautiful Pocono Mountains, people often wonder what happens after they get "snowed in" at Woodloch after a storm. The answer, quite simply, is: fun!
Whether it's snowtubing, Winter Olympics, ice skating, or a breathtaking ride in the go carts, the fun doesn't stop no matter what Mother Nature is doing outside. Guests can experience activities that are open year-round, as well as seasonal ones that become available as soon as the weather turns colder. Woodloch is an ideal winter destination due to the sheer number of things to do at the Poconos resort.
Behind the scenes, the Woodloch Landscaping Department ensures that all guests can take part in these activities in the safest environment possible. As soon as a snow storm hits, these tireless individuals are outside on the Pines property clearing the bus route and main walkways -- all before breakfast. "Getting the main roads and walkways are the first priority," says Tim Mohn, Landscaping Supervisor. "Afterwards, the side roads, parking lots, and nature trail take second priority." Overall, it takes ten people about six or seven hours to get Woodloch back into perfect, pre-storm shape. Because of this, navigating the resort grounds is no problem due to the care taken to make sure everything is passable. Even the snowtube runs are groomed daily!
So to recap: Do not fear the snow; come play in it at Woodloch!
