Editorial Review

Distance from Washington: 215 miles (about four hours)
Average snow: 50 inches
Average season length: 90 days
Price: Weekend lift ticket is $45 for resort guests, $49 for non-guests (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.).
Best for: Beginners who don't want to be overwhelmed at a larger facility. And the mountain's wide slopes make it a little less nerve-wracking experience for them as well.
