Weekend Pick: The Best Way to Escape the Winter Storm

First installment of Jeffrey’s Weekend Pick (because McCown is lazy): Has the Polar Vortex version 2.0 got you down?

A weekend trip to hit the ski slopes now that they’ve all been coated with feet and feet of fresh powder! Here are the ski slopes that were best affected by the winter weather:

West Virginia fared exceptionally well in this lineup (that’s the first–and last– time I’ll ever say that WV fared well at something). Take a look at the map, at least 3 resorts are less than a 3 hr drive from the Baltimore/DC area. Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and even New York are also within 2-3 hours drive of a resort.

  • Timberline Four Seasons – West Virginia – 7″+ past 3 days
  • Snowshoe Mountain Resort – West Virginia – 18″+ past 3 days
  • Canaan Valley Resort – West Virginia – 12″+ past 3 days
  • Wisp Resort – Maryland – 10″+ past 3 days
  • Kissing Bridge – New York – 9″+ past 3 days
  • Sugar Mountain – North Carolina – 8″+ past 3 days
  • Beech Mountain – North Carolina – 7″+ past 3 days
  • Bryce Resort – Virginia – 8″+ past 3 days
  • Whitetail Resort – Pennsylvania – 7″+ past 3 days
