Original post 12/3/15 – In honor of the snowfall that actually laid for a few hours, I have finally finished my master Lift Rate list! I remember last year scouring websites to make sure I had enough money for gas and a ticket – oh, the ski bum life. So, I decided to map it all out in one document, where you can find lift rates from mountain resorts in western Pennsylvania, Maryland and West Virginia. This is a gold mine if you’re trip-planning and/or inviting friends out and you need a quick cheat sheet.
Update 12/14/15 – It’s 60° outside and slated for 50’s and rain for the rest of December over in my neck of the woods, the Laurel Highlands. This is where 7 Springs and Hidden Valley are located, but I think they can pull off something miraculous in desperate measures. Snowshoe, WV has four runs open with Ballhooter and Skidder lifts running. Peek n’ Peak opens this Saturday, but I am unsure of the percentage of trails with snow.
This list can be added to and updated as time goes on. Please feel free to drop a comment if you’d like to see a certain hill listed, if wording is confusing, or to correct a changed lift rate.
