proximity to dc/baltimore
shoddy lifts, narrow trails, huge crowds
My wife and I went to Liberty after the huge snowstorm right before Christmas. It was not a good experiences. Being so close to DC/Baltimore, we expected the crowds, so that didn't bother us. What did bother us were the lifts constantly breaking down. We spent well over half an hour on broken lifts in the 4 hours we were there. The trails were way too narrow for the number of people on them. It really had no redeeming qualities. If you're not willing to make the drive for decent snow, at least do yourself a favor and go to Whitetail.
