Great for beginning skiers or snow boarders. Good shops and restaurants. The mountains are beautiful as are the ;ponds that are located throughout the mountains surrounding Whitetail.

Whitetail is a decent option for folks who want to do a day-trip. Lift lines are generally very crowded on weekends. We generally do a day of skiing followed by a morning tubing session. Not a whole lot of options by way of nearby hotels...More

Go to Whitetail every year, several times a season. Both kids really like skiing & snowboarding and ski conditions are as good as can be expected in this area. Do not expect a relaxing experience- food from both the Solstice restaurant & deli is awful....More
