Elk Mountain (Ski Resort)

Elk Mountain (Ski Resort)

“ I call Elk 'Little Alta'.  Let's be clear, the terrain and snow are nothing like Alta, but there is a charm that is very reminencient of my favorite place on earth. It really does have the best terrain in PA.  The mountain layout is excellent.  There are not too many people bottlenecks, and the vertical is higher than other resorts in the area. Another  thing I like about Elk's terrain is the...” --kermit88

Blue Knob

Blue Knob

“ Blue Knob is probably the best mid-Atlantic ski area when the conditions are right.  It has some of the most challenging terrain in the area, 1000ft vertical, usually doesn't get too crowded and is cheaper most of the other mid-Atlantic ski areas as well.  There are a good number of long trails for experts and intermediates.   So why isn't Blue Knob five stars?  Well...” --MephitBlue

Timberline Four Seasons Resort

Timberline Four Seasons Resort

“ Timberline has been my home mountain for 5+ years now. For hard-core skiers, it is a gem in the Mid Atlantic. I grew up in the Northeast, skiing Vermont and Western Massachusetts; Timberline has a lot of the same skier culture. It doesn't have the same stats as Vermont, but it is still pretty respectable: 1000 feet of vertical, annual snowfall of 150-200 inches a year (greater in some years),...” --JohnL

Jack Frost Mountain

Jack Frost Mountain

“I had very good experiences skiing here.   Unlike most PA resorts, I rarely ever had to wait in a lift line.  That alone makes it one of the best options in Eastern PA.  It's not as tall as other places, but there are a lot of quality runs.  Good steep runs on the right side.  a bunch of intermediate runs down the middle.  Unlike most mountains, the bottom is...” --Angus215

Seven Springs Mountain Resort

Seven Springs Mountain Resort

“This is not a huge mountain, but it's pretty darn good for the mid-atlantic- probably the best. The natural snow is good - they get a lot of it and snowmaking is excellent. They do a good job grooming the trails. There's always some event being hosted here, if you are into that. We have a house here, not part of the resort, just a house, so we are here every weekend during ski season. Before...” --Old lady skier

Snowshoe

Snowshoe

“ When Snowshoe decided to offer a $200 unlimited pass deal for next season, with the addition of being able to use it for the rest of this season, I knew I'd be making a trip to Snowshoe. I've avoided Snowshoe in the past due to the length of time it takes to drive there, the cost of lodging and food, and the crowds that I've heard reported about by other skiers.  However, once the skiing...” --MephitBlue

Blue Mountain Ski Area

Blue Mountain Ski Area

“ Our most recent trip to Blue was between Christmas and New Years.  We have been a ton of times and expected crowds but this past trip was ridiculous.  40 minute lift lines and crowds everywhere.  I not blasting Blue for this one trip but every time we ski there the crowds are insane. Here are my views of what Blue does well, does poorly, and some tips.   GOOD: ...” --Wookie

Whitetail

Whitetail

“There's a reason I did not ski locally for the first four years I lived in the Washington DC area. I grew up skiing small New England resorts and had outgrown small hills with thin snow cover, slow lifts and big crowds. There's a reason I now work at Whitetail. I've fallen in love with the place. Whitetail is located 90 minutes from both the DC and Baltimore beltways. Holiday crowds can get...” --TheRusty

Liberty Mountain

Liberty Mountain

“ Ski Liberty is a fun little ski area that has a great location.  It is one of the closest ski areas to the DC metro area, being a little over an hour away.  Making it a place where a lot of people learn to ski and the local hill to many DC metro area residents.   For a small hill, Ski Liberty has a lot to offer.  First, they are a great place to learn to ski with a...” --MephitBlue

Montage Mountain

Montage Mountain

“ My college age son and I spent a day at Sno Mountain the second Friday in February.   It was one of the best days of skiing (me) and boarding (him) we have ever had. First, the resort was empty. We got there at opening and there were only a handful of cars in the lot. It wasn't until around 2 in the afternoon that we actually had to share a slope with another skier....” --ptgray14
