Mallory Square is centrally located for both work and play. Situated near the Shady Grove Metro, as well as major highways, it’s easy to get away for a ski vacation. Take the weekend, or longer, and enjoy the beautiful winter scenery the Mid-Atlantic region has to offer.
Sometimes you just need to get away. Fortunately, Whitetail Ski Resort is just a little over an hour’s drive in Mersburg, PA. This is definitely a popular destination for Maryland, Virginia, and DC area families, and it’s easy to see why. Whitetail has done two major updates to their ski facilities, and almost all of their trails are lit for night skiing.
Wisp Ski Resort is Maryland’s only ski vacation destination. It’s a 2 ½ hour drive to McHenry, Maryland, and well worth the trip. Wisp offers more than just great slopes. There’s dogsledding, snow shoeing, horse-drawn sleigh rides, and snow tubing. Wisp also has a new track ride that takes you through the forest; it’s open year-round, but is especially beautiful in the wintertime.
Wintergreen Resort is a 3½ hour drive, but you will be handsomely rewarded for your trek to Wintergreen, VA. Not only does Wintergreen have 26 trails of varying degrees of difficulty, but four sit-down restaurants, shops, and rental condominiums and houses located right on the mountainside. For the family members who aren’t skiers, there’s an indoor gaming lounge and a wintery amusement park. They recently added a zipline and new restaurants to the resort as well.
What could be more heavenly than a morning of skiing, and an afternoon at the spa? Massanutten offers skiing, snowboarding, tubing, an ice rink, a heated indoor water park, and a top-notch spa. The spa was recently renovated to include a facial room and couples’ treatments, and is a perfect reward for those skiers willing to brave the 1,100-foot vertical drop Massanutten offers. All 14 trails are lighted for night skiing as well. Massanutten is about 3 hours away in Harrisonburg, VA.
Make the most of the winter season by visiting one of the many ski vacation venues Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania have to offer. You don’t have to go far to find the perfect getaway for you, your friends, and your family.
