The Cold Front is certainly here in the Pocono Mountains of Northeastern Pennsylvania. This can only mean one thing, and that is the fact that Ski Season is going to be here before we know it. Some look at the Poconos, and see ski season as their absolute favorite part of being in the region. We got a dusting of snow early this morning on October 31st, 2012, and it's safe to say that old man winter is here to stay. The Poconos has many different options when it comes to skiing.
