Snow covered mountain tops and ice covered tree branches create January’s scenic beauty for visitors to celebrate in

The northeastern corner of Pennsylvania transforms each January into a winter playground of outdoor activities waiting to welcome visitors! From premiere skiing and snow boarding destinations to winter trails ideal for a leisurely walk in a falling snow, the Endless Mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania are a cold weather destination for visitors to consider.

Lodging members, restaurants and local wineries/microbreweries know how to warm you up and make you comfortable after a day of outdoor winter recreation. Here are some things to consider when planning a winter getaway to the Endless Mountains this month:


With All the Winter Activity…LET IT SNOW!

Families, groups and couples have learned to expect pristine conditions and award-winning grooming at the region’s premiere winter destination. Local hotels, inns, B&B’s and vacation rental homes nearby all offer great rates for planning your winter getaway to the Endless Mountains! 


Trails, Waterfalls and Snow-Covered Vistas Offer the Perfect Backdrop for a Romantic Winter Weekend! 

Trails, Waterfalls and Snow-Covered Vistas Offer the Perfect Backdrop for a Romantic Winter Weekend! 

Book a visit at one of the region’s premiere lodging options and allow mother nature to provide you and your special someone with a wonderful winter backdrop to connect and create new memories. Trails throughout the region are great places for a winter walk or hike, followed by an afternoon of wine tasting at our local wineries or an evening in front of a fire savor locally brewed lagers and ales. Book a guide service to explore some of the region’s more advanced trails and waterways (professional guides are recommended for winter safety) for a day out in the great outdoors of Northeastern Pennsylvania! 


Sleigh Bells are not only for the Holidays!

Horse Drawn Sleighs are a winter tradition throughout the Endless Mountains! A friendly competition of horse pulled sleighs is set for January 20th in downtown Dushore, Sullivan County, when the Endless Mountains Sleigh Rally Kicks off in the heart of town. 

Competitive judging on horse performance, driver’s ability, Currier & Ives renditions, dog’s compatibility, and cone’s timed events are part of the event. Get your picture with one of the competitors, pet a horse, or cheer on your favorite. May be held with carriages if the ground is frozen but no snow. (This event is weather dependent: Mud/ice/blizzard weather date will be Sunday, February 17th).
