"Skiing at Montage"
Montage Mountain is located in Scranton. Right off of exit 182, Interstate 81.
I skied as a teenager, snowboarded for the past 4 years, and now have taken up ski boarding-which I love!
We like to try different mountains in the Poconos when we ski, but only now, after joining VT, have I decided to make pages for them with pictures.
