SkiText Communication Platform for the Pocono Region

by GO GlobeHopper

The Pocono Mountains Visitors Bureau (PMVB) and SkiText have launched a quick and efficient way to access information at select Pocono ski resorts in real time through text messaging.

SkiText is a new communication platform available at Pocono area resorts including Shawnee Mountain Ski Area and Ski Big Bear at Masthope Mountain to communicate with skiers & snowboarders through their mobile devices.

Want to know the trails that are open or perhaps the local weather conditions at Shawnee?  Want to buy lift tickets? Want to know your food & drink options at Ski Big Bear?

SkiText’s automated two-way text messaging system can provide skiers and snowboarders with the information needed to navigate a successful day on the slopes from the comfort of their mobile phones. And signing up is free!

To sign up for SkiText, text the word SKI to (844) SKI-TEXT or (844) 754-8398.  Once you get a message back from SkiText, just follow the prompts to finish your subscription. You may also join online by going to and clicking on the SkiText banner.

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