My 14-yr old son and I are flying into DC (Dulles) on Dec 17, and we've got exactly 2.5 days to spend at a ski area (assuming no more than 4-hour drive from the airport).
Thanks to a similar post under the DC topic, I saw the listing of area ski resorts on the Washington Post site, which gave me plenty of stats to go on.
We're beginner to intermediate, and just want to have a fun time on the slopes. Night life and shopping not necessary. Right now Canaan and Timberline(WV)and Seven Springs (PA) seem the most intriguing. Wisp does as well since my brother lives nearby. And I see that there are several others that are a bit closer. For our limited time and budget, Snowshoe seems out of the question.
Any comments on these or other suggestions would be much appreciated (esp those who are most likely to have snow!)
