The Pizza Guys in Carbondale

This is another hidden gem. The Pizza Guys is on Church Street in Carbondale. It is a hole in the wall facility offering takeout only, but the Pizza is great. It  is similar to the Andy's and Angies style pizzas of Peckville and Dickson City.

The Pizza Guys should definitely be mentioned on the NEPA Pizza list (if there were one).

Is Alpine Mountain Open?

Just wondering if anybody has any info on Alpine Mountain ski area. Last winter was warm and they had issues staying open. Are they opening up for the 2016-2017 ski season?

Hopefully we get better ski conditions this year.

I'm surprised to see the name Tanglwood here. I skied here as a kid into adulthood. It was a shame to lose this place. It was pretty cool up there. For those of you that never had a chance to ski Tanglwood, you missed out on a ski area that was never crowded during the week. The hilss were somewhat short, but it was still a great getaway.

They put a lot of money into montage Mountain in the last few years. The place looks great, they just need more snow and colder temps for great skiing. This place is a short drive from the Scranton and Wilkes Barre area.

This thread is dedicated to Shawnee Mountain skiing.

I skied at Shawnee last year at the end of the season. There was a decent crowd for the end of the year. Ski conditions weren't great because of the temps, but I still had a good time. This mountain gets crowded so I try to ski here on weeknights.

I heard them mention on the news that there is some kind of Octoberfest going on at Elk Mountain in the pre-season. Hopefully Elk will kick off their season right on schedule this year. They always seem to have great conditions even when the winter in NEPA isn't cooperating.

As for directions to Big Bear skiing... My GPS took me on a wild ride also. This ski area is not really near a major highway, so windy roads are the only roads.

I have skied up at Big Bear a couple of times in recent years. The biggest downfall to this ski area is the location. There is just no easy way to get there.

As for the skiing, it's not the biggest mountain in the Poconos, but there is enough mountain there to keep anyone busy for a whole day. The conditions were very good when I was there. There is a good mix of slopes for various levels of skiing.

Camelback is the premier skiing resort in the Poconos. I ski quite a few times locally every year. For anyone looking for tips... The secret to Camelback is simple, go on a weekday or weeknight and you will enjoy yourself more. This mountain gets very crowded on winter weekends.

Do some mid-week skiing at Camelback if you can.

Now the Alpine Mountain website says closed for the season, no mention of anything else.

Just looked at Alpine Mountain website and no mention of closing or anything like that. Hopefully they get back on their feet. Alpine is not the biggest mountain in the Poconos, it's more like a well kept skiing secret.

They have light crowds which is what probably led to their money problems. I have skied here quite a few times in my life. There's a good mix of hills and you'll get plenty of runs per night at a place like this.

Hopefully someone can post some kind of update before the ski season gets going.
