Great backcountry style XC skiing to be had at Whitegrass. Lodge and cafe are just the right vibe of lowkey funkiness filled with smiling employees and skiers alike. Skip the lift-served skiing and go exploring at Whitegrass this winter, you won't be disappointed.

I hadn't been on skis in 25+ years, and hardly knew what I was doing then. My son had never been on skis. Plus, we're from Florida... We don't see much snow! Everyone was friendly and helpful, whether they were staff or just local skiers. We were only there for a few hours at the very end of the season,... More

We try to get out here several times over the winter. Great trails, warm vibe, really tasty food at the cafe. You can x-c ski, snowshoe, or telemark ski on 50k of trails here. Wonderful place that seems almost lost in time, in a good way.

I went to White Grass specifically to learn to Cross Country Ski because I hurt myself trying to learn the ski a little, fall, get up and ski some more approach. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. They not only got me up and moving on skis they also got my wife who had no interest in skiing up... More

This place is made out of pure love of skiing. The place deals with skiing the way it was invented in the Nordic countries, as a way of moving from one place to another on the snow. It reminds me of how I learnt to ski in Norway many years ago on skis that were a hybrid between telemark and... More

Second time I've been at Whitegrass, about the 4th time for my wife. We love it (when there's snow!). The ski center/cafe is about as low key and relaxed as you can find anywhere. We skied midweek so were not there when the hundreds of others crowded the lodge area. The cross country trails are meticulously groomed and the views... More

I've been to White Grass a couple of times, now, and it is absolutely worth the drive from the DC area. The snow is usually pretty good, the trails are interesting and generally well maintained, and the café serves excellent home-cooked food at excellent prices. My spouse says it reminds her of a 1950s downhill ski resort. Everyone is extremely... More

Have been to White Grass many times. It is the best place I have found to cross country ski. I don't telemark ski but I'm sure that's fine too. White Grass offers so many trails from flat to hills....whatever suits you. People are friendly and they have a great cafe with food and booze. Friendly place and very affordable. If... More

I have just finished xc skiing at White Grass for the last 2 days. The staff are great. Busy weekend with lots of people and lots of snow! They worked hard to keep everything moving from car parking to rental. I like to just go and enjoy flat, wooded trails, getting just the perfect stride (yes, lots of greens). I... More
