Winter is here! But snow doesn't stop anybody from having fun in the Laurel Highlands. The Instagram posts below show just that. Strap on your snowboard or find a hill and go sledding!

With the Laurel Highlands resorts opening slopes and other activities, this time of the year is exciting for winter sports lovers. It looks like these kiddos tackled the bunny slope hard!

Just when you think the Diamond in Ligonier can't get more charming, the Christmas decorations get put up. Take a stroll around the Diamond, go shopping at the unique boutiques and adore the delightful Christmas tree and bright lights.

 

While following the GPS back to my little sister's house, we drove through a picturesque town centre. I shouted 'Gilmore Girls!' at the same time my sister and wife shouted 'Stars Hollow!'. We immediately pulled over and scrambled out for a wander. #legoniervalley #laurelhighlands #westmorelandcounty

Frank Lloyd Wright's Kentuck Knob looks festive with holly bushes in the garden and snow covering the property. The house is still open for tours during December, be sure to visit and take in the breathtaking views.

Cross country skiers rejoice! Last weekend, there was enough snow on the ground for the first run of the season at Laurel Mountain State Park. Like this adventurer says, "Get outside and have fun!"

The towering trees are stripped of their leaves, but they still look beautiful lining the snow-covered trails. Find a trail, bring a friend and explore the Laurel Highlands. 

 

The Laurel Highlands is a four season destination, and winter is arguably the most popular, especially for winter sports lovers. Use #LaurelHighlands while sharing your photos for a chance to get featured next week! Be sure to bundle up and get outside to find your adventure!
