With the considerable snowfall that blankets southwest Pennsylvania’s Laurel Highlands region, a fourth ski area was bound to emerge. Nemacolin Woodlands Resort opened its slopes in the late 90s to downhillers at Mystic Mountain. Skiing is a small piece of the posh, 1,000-acre all-seasons resort. Overshadowing it is the resort’s myriad of other winter activities, luxurious base amenities, and year-round lodging in the French Renaissance-molded hotel and surrounding condominiums. Town & Country recently recognized Nemacolin’s spa as one of its 10 Best in America, and the fourstar Golden Trout restaurant has also won acclaim from Bon Appetit magazine. Nemacolin resides in the small town of Farmington, 16 miles southeast of Uniontown and just a few miles from historic Fort Necessity, where George Washington’s first military engagement took place in the French and Indian War. This eTrail contains a thorough description of the resort including driving directions, mountain statistics, trail profiles, extensive lodging & dining information, travel tips, and much more.

I hesitated to give Mystic Mountain a two-star rating because of the atmosphere which surrounds it. As a part of the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort (itself most definitely five-star), the luxury and amenities available are innumerable. When you look at the spa and the Golden Trout restaurant, a true indulgence, all the wonderful shops, and even the Sundial Lodge, you think "Wow, the slopes must be incredible." But, they're the reason for the low rating. Not only are there few of them, but the snow isn't always packed well. One advantage, however, is that crowds tend to be small, so you can ski those few, short slopes over and over again. If you're more into pampering than serious powder, then this could be just what you want. Note: There is talk of expansion, but probably not in time for the upcoming season.
