This mole hill is quite laughable. I can't believe the reviews. The best closest to DC? It's the only resort closest to DC so I guess that title could go to anyone.
If you like paying $51 for 31 second runs, and hitting 4 trails for 4 hours... This is your resort. The snowboard park is rutted out, they put the park on flat hill so you can't get any speed to hit the jumps. The rails are all ride-on. It's crowded, and the main run gets mogeled out after two hours. Don't bother wasting your money on an 8 hour pass for $4 more. You'll be bored after 10 minutes. You should ask if they have a one hour flex pass for $10.
Oh and if you bring a group, other resorts discount 30-50%. Not here. You get $5 off. They've raised lift ticket prices without adding any more offerings, so if you want to play frogger on mashed potatoes, this hill is just for you. Just be sure to shell out $51 for four hours, and $40 for just boot rentals (my friend had to rent snowboard boots). She ended up buying a new pair for $120.
The whole mountain is a gyp. Go somewhere else. Wisp is only 2.5 hours from DC and Seven Springs is about the same. I'd say the extra hour of driving is well worth it, and it costs the same.
