Go Skiing? Yes, Still

Spring skiing means small crowds, discounted rates, and non-frigid temperatures

Just because the grass is getting green and the birds are singing doesn’t mean winter is over. Wisp Resort in Western Maryland and Snowshoe Mountain Resort in West Virginia often remain open for skiing through March.

Wisp is three hours away. Spring weekend packages at Wisp Resort Hotel (301-387-4000) start at $80 a person per night and include lodging and lift tickets. For more luxurious accommodations, try Lake Pointe Inn (800-523-5253), starting at $247 a night, or Haley Farm Bed and Breakfast & Spa (301-387 9050), starting at $180.

Snowshoe (877-441-4386) is 4½ hours from Washington. A late-season, one-bedroom mountaintop-condo lift/lodging package starts at $159 a person per night. Kids ages 12 and under ski free on any four-night package.
