Distance from Baltimore: 264 miles, about a four-hour drive
Why it's cool: With 244 acres of skiable terrain spread over two mountains, West Virginia's Snowshoe Mountain Resort, at an altitude that tops 4,800 feet, bills itself as the largest ski resort in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast regions.
Don't miss: The restaurants. A few are new, including the Sunset Cantina, serving Southwestern cuisine, and The Stash, which offers a Japanese-inspired menu.
