Winter Wonderland Awaits: Nemacolin's Snowy Escapes

Winter at Nemacolin isn’t just a season — it’s a world of real-life magic and adventure waiting to be discovered. Whether you’re looking for a family-friendly holiday filled with exhilarating fun in the great outdoors or a romantic escape full of intimate experiences for two, Nemacolin provides the perfect setting for an unforgettable winter getaway.

Set among more than 2,200 beautiful, wooded acres in the Laurel Highlands region of Pennsylvania, Nemacolin is ideally situated for a winter getaway from NYC or from elsewhere along the East Coast. Embark with your loved ones on a scenic road trip, or fly into the Pittsburgh Airport, and drive approximately an hour and a half to reach our enchanting snow-blanketed grounds.

Outdoor Winter Fun

From adrenaline-rushing adventures on the slopes to serene excursions through frost-laden forests, Nemacolin sets the stage for winter weekend getaways steeped in nature’s beauty.

Skiing and Snowboarding

The Peak at Nemacolin is a slope-side paradise, spanning 25 acres of meticulously groomed terrain. Six slopes range from gentle beginner hills for those just finding their footing, to challenging runs that promise a thrill for even the most seasoned enthusiasts. Private lessons are available, and illuminated trails (and year-round pools!) ensure the fun continues after dark.

Dogsledding

Explore Nemacolin’s forested terrain with the most loveable guides around — our very own sled dog team. For the safety of the dogsledding team, real-feel temperatures need to be 40°F or less, and there needs to be at least 8” of snowpack before you can glide on a sled. But even without snow, the experience is just as exhilarating as our dogs pull a special wheeled Touri Cart through the magical landscape.

Snow Tubing

With snow tubing, you can feel the unbridled joy of being a kid again — squeals guaranteed. A conveyor lift transfers guests to the top of the tubing slope, where six lanes await to whizz you down a stunning descent of 700 feet.

Cross-Country Skiing

Glide through the picturesque woodlands and open fields of the Laurel Highlands on cross-country skis. Enjoy a rigorous full-body workout while communing with nature in the crisp air.
