As we’ve said before, one of the reasons Loudoun is a great place to live is its proximity to attractions all over the DC Metropolitan Area and beyond. Take skiing & snowboarding, for example. Within an hour’s drive from many points in Loudoun County is Liberty Mountain Resort in Caroll Valley, PA. An easy drive north from Leesburg through Frederick, MD, and straight up Route 15 North takes you to a decent day of skiing, snowboarding or snow tubing. Willing to drive a little further? Try Bryce Resort in Basye, VA, near Mt. Jackson in the Shenandoah Valley, which is South of Loudoun. Two more close-by resorts north of the Mason-Dixon line are White Tail Resort in Mercersburg, PA, and Roundtop Mountain Resort in Lewisberry, PA, both of which are affiliated with Liberty Mountain Resort.
