Skiing & Snowboarding

Mystic Mountain is Western Pennsylvania's ideal learning environment for first-time skiers and snowboarders, with 25 acres of fun, short lines, friendly trails and experienced instructors.

If winter sports are your thing then you are in luck! Downhill skiing and snowboarding are available on 7 slopes at Mystic Mountain, with slope difficulty ranging from beginner to expert. Mystic Mountain has a 300' vertical drop, three lifts and is 100% illuminated, making night skiing great fun. The mountain is serviced by three lifts: one quad chair lift, a beginner tow and a surface lift in the snow tubing park. Mystic Mountain also has rental equipment available, leaving no excuses for battling the mountain!

Cross Country Skiing has been an event on the grounds of Mystic Mountain and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort since the 1970's. Our beautiful 1.5 mile trail takes advantage of The Links golf course and includes gorgeous views of the Laurel Highlands. Rental equipment is available at the Sundial Lodge. Beginner and Intermediate lessons are available weekends only.

Experience "flotation" this winter. Snowshoe rentals are available at the Sundial Lodge. Our trails take advantage of The Links golf course and include gorgeous views of the Laurel Highlands. Rental equipment is available at the Sundial Lodge.

Winter Dog Sledding

Sled dogs pulling a sled through the snow.

You don’t have to go to Alaska to witness dogs pulling a sled through the snow. It’s at Nemacolin! Meet your very own set of sled dogs and their friends with a tour of our dog yard that houses 24 Alaskan huskies. There is a short briefing on the basics of dog sledding and how the musher maneuvers the sled while controlling the dogs with specific voice signals. Then, climb on in! Glide across the snow at speeds of up to 20 miles per hour, making quick turns up and down the scenic landscape of the Laurel Highlands. Get an adrenaline rush that you’ve never had before!

Minimum weight for children is 45 lbs. The run will take place regardless of weather, so please dress appropriately.

Advanced reservations are strongly recommended for many of our activities. For more information, please contact a Resort Sales Specialist at 866.344.6957
