Learn to Ski or Snowboard This Winter at Nemacolin’s Mystic Mountain

FARMINGTON, PA (Jan. 17, 2017) – For those interested in learning to ski or snowboard this winter, Mystic Mountain at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort provides an ideal environment. The resort is known for its intimate, upscale ski experience and skilled team of instructors who specialize in working with beginners.

From its location high in Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands, Mystic Mountain emphasizes instruction for children, first-time adults and skiers wishing to brush up on their skills. The staff makes sure each skier or snowboarder receives attentive one-on-one instruction.

Additionally, a popular program called Snow Camp acclimates children to skiing and snowboarding. Snow Camp includes a chaperoned time on the slopes, as well as playing games, sipping hot chocolate and winning prizes. It’s open to kids from ages 4 to 12 with half-day and full-day sessions.

“Our philosophy is focused on excellent ski instruction here at Mystic Mountain – giving people that first skiing or snowboarding experience where they learn a new sport and have a lasting memory,” says Andrew Huebner, director of resort recreation. “We have a great mountain for instruction with easy terrain for a beginner skier and for families to come out and just enjoy themselves.”

The overall atmosphere at Mystic Mountain is relaxed. Skiers and boarders have seven slopes served by a chairlift and two surface lifts, as well as a snow tubing park and a newly renovated terrain park. Snowshoeing and cross country skiing are other options, with plenty of aprés ski fun in the Sundial Lodge overlooking the slopes.

“Apex restaurant is located on the top floor of the lodge. It’s a family restaurant for skiers and boarders to hang out, or for people just to come and watch the skiers and snowboarders on the slopes,” Huebner says. “There’s also a bowling alley downstairs in the lodge.”

Mystic Mountain kicked off its 2016-17 season on Christmas Eve with plans to stay open through the second weekend of March, weather permitting. Special events on this year’s calendar include Winterfest Weekend, Feb. 4-5, and a totally awesome ’80s Ski Bash on March 4.

Skiers who wish to stay overnight have several options on the 2,000-acre Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. Accommodations are available in The Lodge, the upscale Chateau Lafayette modeled after the Ritz in Paris, and the five-diamond Falling Rock boutique hotel. Other options include vacation homes and pet-friendly townhomes.
