November 28, 2018
There is no shortage of exciting things to do here in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, be it amusement park visits, hiking, shopping, museum browsing, beer trail touring, and more! Many of these things can be done year-round, but there is one place that attracts visitors from all around the country every winter: The Roundtop Mountain Ski Resort. The ski resort is only thirty minutes from us here at Pheasant Field Bed and Breakfast in Carlisle, PA, and we provide excellent lodging for a more private and comfortable vacation experience! In addition, show us your lift tickets and you'll receive a discount on your stay with us!
The Roundtop Mountain Ski Resort is open all year, but the slopes are only open for the cold winter months. Because there is not as much snowfall here in our part of the state, the resort often creates their own snow in order to keep the slopes open for all to enjoy! Check out the process here for a more in-depth explanation of this fascinating feat of science.
During the summer months, the Resort offers fun activities for children as well as plenty of family-filled adventure opportunities, including zip-lining, paintball, super slides, mazes, ropes courses, and more! But for now, here are a few activities that are available during this time of the year:
