First time snowboarding. The teachers were inconsistent in techniques but overall it was fun. The food was over priced but convient and tasty. Parking can be tricky on a crowded day but the shuttle bus is helpful.

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...More

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.
