Shawnee Mountain has nine lifts. Its main lift is a high speed-Detachable chairlift from Doppelmayr CTEC that was bought in 2010. This quad lift reaches the top in only 3 minutes and is called Tomahawk Express. The other quad chairlift is the Arrowhead Chairlift. There is a double-double chairlift (two chairlifts together). Normally, only one of the doubles is open. Then is another double chairlift (only one) called the Bushkill Chairlift that takes people over the Bushkill Terrain Park. This is a very narrow chairlift and the longest one. Then at the beginner's hill, there is a small double chairlift. Next to it is a magic carpet lift. Then at the learning center is another magic carpet. Also, there is a snowtubing magic carpet.

The mountain also features 100% snow making, night skiing and snow tubing. The mountain summit receives an average of 50 inches (1,300 mm) of snow fall each winter. The resort opened in 1975.

In 2013 and 2014, Shawnee was able to open late November due to an aggressive snow season. Typically, skiing is open until some time in March.

The base building houses lounges, restaurants and bars, rental and repair shops, locker facilities and offices. A ski school is on the premises.
