Winter full of fun at the Times House and Jim Thorpe

Though it’s mid-January, there is still plenty of fun to be had and to look forward to in Jim Thorpe.

Despite just a sprinkling of snow to date this winter, Blue Mountain is hopping with lots of trails open. You can check out Blue Mountain Ski Area Report for up-to-date conditions. Folks looking for ski packages and winter getaways, need look no further than the Times House and Jim Thorpe’s bed and breakfasts.

You can always count on a great line-up of shows at a great price at the Mauch Chunk Opera House – where our guests get a discount -and plenty of good food and good company in Jim Thorpe’s restaurants and pubs, not to mention free wine-tasting at Big Creek next door to us on Race Street.
