It seems like winter was made for ski trips in the Laurel Highlands. With the highest peaks in Pennsylvania and, on average, the largest amount of natural snowfall in the state, conditions are ideal for skiing and snowboarding. It’s no surprise that the region’s ski resorts are some of the largest in the state, offering skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing and cross-country skiing trails with a side of charming small towns and plenty of hot chocolate along the way. Road trippers will find plenty to keep them busy – and warm – all day.
After a busy day on the slopes, recharge your batteries with a hot and satisfying meal at the Clock Tower Restaurant. Located in the heart of Hidden Valley’s lodge, you can’t miss it – look for the big clock tower. Enjoy a birds-eye view of the action on the snow while dining on a tasty dish.Read More >
