In response to reader suggestions, I have just added a new feature to DCSki that makes it easy to determine how far away each Mid-Atlantic resort is. There are two ways to access this feature. If you visit a Resort Profile page, for example DCSki's Whitetail Resort Profile: http://www.dcski.com/resorts/viewprofile.php?resort=whitetail
You will notice there is now an "Estimated Distances from Major Cities" table in the Statistics section. I picked ten top cities based on where the majority of DCSki readers come from. The estimated driving time and miles are given for each resort.
You may also access this feature in a slightly different way by visiting DCSki's interactive Map: http://www.dcski.com/resorts/gmap.php
Below the map, you will find sections for each of the ten major cities. If you click on a city name, you can view a list of all Mid-Atlantic ski resorts, sorted by which ones are closest to the city you clicked. It's kind of cool to see how far away the resorts are.
These distances are approximate. For example, the center of cities such as Washington, DC is used in the calculations. If you live in the suburbs, the distances could change appreciably.
(And yes, I had a great deal of fun this weekend collecting all this data -- not!)
If you catch any errors, let me know.
