Ski Routes after Snowstorms
Immediately after significant snowfalls, River Road, which provides access to McDade Trail, may be gated closed until snowplows can clear the road. Immediate conditions can be obtained by calling Dispatch at (570) 426-2435. In prolonged snowy weather, Blue Mt. Lakes Road may be gated closed just past the Blue Mt. Lakes parking area. This enables skiers to safely ski along Blue Mt. Lakes Rd. and Skyline Drive, and to ski from Blue Mt. Lakes to the Pool Colony area, south of Blue Mt. Lakes Road.

Sledding and snowboarding are not permitted on the grounds of Cliff Park in Pennsylvania.
