Find Pocono Mountains Ski Information and Updates

Sign up for Ski Text in the Pocono Mountains to get the latest information this ski season!

Pocono Mountain Visitors Bureau has partnered with SkiText to provide you with a quick and efficient way to access information through text messaging

What is SkiText ?

SkiText is a new communication platform being used by Pocono area resorts like Shawnee Mountain and Ski Big Bear to communicate with skiers & snowboarders through text messaging.

-Want to know trails open or local weather conditions at Shawnee or need to buy lift tickets for Shawnee?

-Or maybe you want to know your food & drink options at Ski Big Bear?

SkiText’s automated two way text messaging system can provide you with the information you need to navigate a successful day on the slopes from the comfort of your mobile phone!

And oh yeah… did we mention SkiText is FREE to join for skiers & boarders ?

To sign up for SkiText at any partner mountain resort… simply open your phone and send a text (to SkiText) including the name of that resort.

Let’s use Shawnee Mountain Resort as an example. Open a new message, and text the word SHAWNEE to 844-SKI-TEXT. Once you get a message back from SkiText, just follow the prompts to subscribe.

You can also choose to subscribe to all Pocono resorts using this service by texting the word SKI to 844-SKI-TEXT, or simply join online by going to and clicking on the SkiText promo.

The first Pocono Mountain ski resorts that will be using SkiText are Shawnee Mountain Resort and Ski Big Bear.
