During any season, a visit to the Laurel Highlands will make for one of the best weekend getaways. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the plentiful winter adventures, history buffs will learn stories from George Washington, the French and Indian War, the Revolutionary War, and foodies will love the delicious comfort foods found throughout the region.
The Laurel Highlands has four great ski and snowboard areas with perfect slope conditions, making for some of the best skiing in Pennsylvania. Hit the slopes at Seven Springs Mountain Resort, Laurel Mountain, Hidden Valley Resort and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort.
Winter just might be my favorite season for hiking. With a fresh blanket of snow and the invigorating, crisp air, it’s like trekking in a giant snow globe! The Laurel Highlands offers some of the best hiking trails in Pennsylvania, boasting 120,000 acres of state parks.
