The first concert I saw at Montage was Lollapalooza II, featuring Pearl Jam and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, among other great acts. I was 19 and home from college for the summer and I remember feeling so excited to see my small hometown lure a top tour to the area.
Provided the weather is nice, Montage Mountain is a great place to take in both a musical performance as well as some amazing natural beauty. Montage is the highest point in the Wyoming Valley of Pennsylvania so from up top, you get a great perspective on the surrounding area.

Over the years, Montage has made great efforts to improve the terrain and provide more challenging trails for expert skiers. To that end, they added the "North Face" in the late 80s that has, I believe, four trails which are black diamond and double black diamond.
This is a great "learn to ski" mountain and I know plenty of expert skiers who are happy to have a decent mountain nearby. The biggest challenge, so far as I can tell, is keeping snow on the mountain. The weather has not always cooperated during the past few years!
