Best Ski Vacations From Washington, D.C.
Though the "Beltway" sounds somewhat like a chairlift, D.C. residents actually have to work to get their turns. Fortunately, the Appalachians aren't too far away from the swamplands and estuaries that characterize our nation's capital. Indeed, just past Virginia is something called the Mountaineer State: West Virginia. Once they attach skis or a snowboard to their feet, Beltway types can aspire to shred like famous predecessors Gerald Ford, Dan Quayle and Richard Holbrooke.
