Our family loves Whitetail. Just 90 minutes from DC, it's convenient for a day trip. We like to get there when they open around 8:00-8:30 a.m. It's not a huge resort, but for East Coast skiing, it's pretty good conditions. They make snow when it's cold enough. The runs aren't too long, but they have good variety, and a fun... More

We are beginner skiers and we were so impressed with how nice all of the staff were. Everyone is really helpful and the instructors are lovely. We would have liked to have had dinner at Solstice but it closed early both times we tried. We ended up driving into Mercersburg or Hagerstown for most of our meals. We will definitely... More

We had a family ski weekend here. We had a 10 year old who had never skied before. We enrolled her in the full day ski program and we're happy with their program. Even though the resort was crowded they did a good job of handling the crowds. Our only complaint was they don't have enough lockers for day skiers.... More

This was the first ski resort my family and I ever visited. My wife made the hotel reservations and she never thought to ask if the resort sold beer. At the time, I was not a skier, but I figured it would be okay as I could have a couple of beers whilst watching my wife and daughter ski. No... More

Visited whitetail resort for the first time yesterday. The base area is new and well kept. Staff was very friendly and serve in the restaurant was great. Really nice views from the front windows looking out over the mountain. Definitely will return. Very easy drive from D.C.! All of their runs were open despite temps soared into the high 40's....

Just stopped by to check out the slope conditions, and the resorts eating areas. Didn't buy much because the food was quite pricy. The scenery was outstanding, and it was well-attended for a mild day. Rental prices were similar to other ski areas.

Snow was a little slushy as t was a warm day, but staff were nice, and it was a fun day for us to start the season. Will definitely go back, hopefully on a day that's cold enough to experience the resort fully.
