Alpine Lake offers you an extensive network of trails over hundreds of acres of snow-covered wilderness in the breathtaking Appalachian Mountains. Experience us for a day by enjoying the friendly services of our lodge, or better yet, stay longer in our cozy hotel or vacation rental.  Just a short drive from Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and the D.C. area, Alpine Lake is the best kept secret of cross-country skiers and snowshoeing in the eastern United States. 

Here's why:
  • Annual snowfall exceeding 100 inches
  • 7 trails
  • 35-room hotel / vacation rentals - click here
  • Breathtaking views
  • Base elevation of 2800 feet
