Whitetail Mountain Resort is a four season resort located on Two Top Mountain in the Tuscarora Mountains of Pennsylvania. The resort opened for skiing in 1991, and was acquired a few years later bySnow Time, Inc., the company which also manages Liberty Mountain Resort and Ski Roundtop. Whitetail is located between Mercersburg, Pennsylvania and Clear Spring, Maryland and serves theBaltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area. Located 89 miles (143 km) from Washington, D.C. and 92 miles (148 km) from Baltimore, Maryland, Whitetail is the second-closest ski resort to Washington and the third-closest to Baltimore (behind sister resorts Liberty Mountain and Ski Roundtop). The resort operates a snow tubing park alongside the ski hill. During non-ski season, Whitetail offers fly fishingand a par 72 golf course.
Whitetail Resort’s trail system was specifically designed to separate skiers of different skiing abilities. Separate first time, easier, intermediate and most difficult areas are lined up in sequence across the mountain, each fed by a different lift system, with trails connecting each area to its neighbors. Whitetail’s trails are a series of straight parallels noted for the steady, sustained pitch of their vertical drop. The resort’s design was noted by Snow Country Magazine, which gave its 1992 Best Overall Resort Design Award to Whitetail, and by Skiing Magazine, which recognized the resort for environmental excellence in area design.
