ALEXANDRIA, VA. - We may not see snow in the DC area for some time, but there is snow within just a few hours’ drive. And where there’s snow, there’s skiing.

Check out the basics on these ski resorts, all within a three-hour drive of our area.

Roundtop, Whitetail and Liberty

The sister slopes of Roundtop, Whitetail and Liberty are all in south-central Pennsylvania. All three have 100 percent snow-making capabilities to compensate if Mother Nature skimps on the white stuff this winter.

Roundtop Resort

925 Roundtop Road, Lewisberry, PA

In addition to all levels of trails (from bunny slopes to double-black-diamond drops), non-skiers can go snow tubing, play paintball or climb the ropes course. The resort offers “seasonal leases” on equipment.  For more information, including lift ticket specials, hours and more, go to
