Terrain Parks - Whitetail

Rider's Guide 

Whitetail has top-of-the-line snowmaking on 100 percent of its 120 acres of land, 23 trails (beginner 26 percent, intermediate 42 percent, advanced 32 percent), two terrain parks, and a halfpipe. There is more than 900 feet of vertical to shred and the trails are laid out in sequential order from easiest to hardest so beginners and experts remain separated, which enhances the experience for everyone. The resort has put in a lot of money and time to make some great improvements to the resort and it is far better able to handle the large volume of visitors it receives annually.

Parks and Pipes

Park Place 101 is the beginner's park. It has small features perfect for beginners, smaller riders and freestyle skiers and those guests looking to warm up. Jib Junction is where to head for large features. The park features massive boxes, large rails and great hits. The features are ever-changing and park builders are constantly evolving and growing the terrain park area. The resort also houses one of the largest halfpipes in the entire region. The parks are lit up at night for after-hours riding. Check out the great deals and discounts on lift tickets and multi-day passes before heading to the resort.

Out of Bounds

The area is absolutely replete with outdoor activities and varying snow sports. There is hiking, ice fishing, ice skating, snowshoeing, cross country as well as sleigh rides and historic walks and tours. On the mountain itself there are several great ski and snowboard lessons and clinics and a large snowtubing park that stays open at night with the rest of the resort.

Hangout & Hookup

Whitetail is not an area renowned for its après ski scene, it’s pretty quiet and caters mainly to families and couples. There is not a bar on the mountain, and although there is a bar or two in Clear Spring and Mercerburg, potential visitors seeking an active and lively nightlife will be disappointed in the Whitetail region. Fortunately, it is close to Baltimore and DC, so it makes a great day trip.
