Pocono Ski Resorts Using Myspace

Wednesday, October 25th, 2006

It seems that Camelback ski resort has launched a myspace page.  This will be a great tool for the resort.  Using “Web 2.0″ technology will let Camelback customers participate in promoting the resort online.  Myspace is a really smart way for any travel business in the Pocono’s to promote their biz.

The Slots are coming

Friday, October 6th, 2006

Pocono Manor which opened its doors in 1902 plans to spend over a billion dollars in improvements if it gets one of the slot machine license. This is expected to bring thousands of jobs to the area. This is not going to be a small project. If the slots are awarded they plan to build a 20 story 750 room hotel and casino. Not the usually small resort in the Pennsylvania mountains. From what I have heard around the net the builders are doing there best to keep the resort blended into the Pocono mountains background. My question is can you really blend a hugh resort in to the mountains, I hope so.

These projects are so big that not only will the resort properties change a great deal but so will the local roads. One of the plans to keep the locals form feeling the visitor traffic is have a exit ramp off of interstate 380 directly to the resort. Since the slots are coming I hope everyone is starting to think about how to work with the resorts to make sure the Pocono mountains keeps its small town feel.
