A Winter Visit to Gettysburg


While many visitors think of Gettysburg as a summer destination, others know that winter is the time to discover the peace that is Gettysburg. A quiet tour of the battlefield without the crowds of spring and summer allow you to see clearly how the troops moved along the tree lines and through the open fields. Winter recreation adds a new spin to what you thought you knew – just a few minutes from Gettysburg, Liberty Mountain Resort offers skiing, snowboarding and tubing for you, your friends and your whole family.

Bundle up if you are coming for a visit. A walk through town to hit our cool shops while collecting your holiday gifts will be brisk in December. Those days seem warm compared to January and February when the snow blankets the fields and sidewalks. You can expect temperatures to range from the 40s to the 30s during the day and dip in the evenings and overnight. We average about 3” of snow, but even the meteorologists struggle with predictions during winter. Be prepared to warm up by the fire in the evening – check to see which of our accommodations offer fireplaces before you book your room.

Cold or not, if you bundle up, Gettysburg is beautiful, peaceful and fun in the winter. It’s our little secret… for now.
