That quad is one of the first quads that I am aware of in the US, if I recall it was one of the first 10 or so. Back in the 70's and 80's everyone from DC would come up to Roundtop. Liberty put in the backside with that quad and the crowds started to go there (made Roundtop more enjoyable).
Interesting that they were still making snow on March 6.
Of note, Roundtop was to close last week and with all the snow they are staying open a little later. Also, Roundtop is talking about puttin in the trails they planned (and cut one) 20 years ago or so, increase the vert to around 800, intermediate terrain.
Jmaul and Igenousdoc are right: Ski Liberty, in PA's Blue Ridge Mountains above the Carroll Valley -- just north of the Mason-Dixon Line and about a dozen miles south of Gettysburg.
As you can see, it was a sunny and uncrowded weekday at Liberty. This was my first visit -- my Wintergreen (VA) "Mountains of Distinction" pass bonus gives a 50% weekday discount at about 10 areas, incl. Liberty. I was surprised by the amount of skiing they pack onto a 600-foot vertical. The lifts, signs, trails and base lodge are all well-maintained.

Woody,been to Shippensburg,Gettysburg,Emmitsburg,and Chambersburg,and went to a school(4yrs)near Middleburg,and saw Liberty and snowy mtn off rt15 but at that point wasn't worthy of a 2 hr day trip to me in the late 70's.
As a flatlander that 600' hill looks quite inviting now,do they still have the alpine slide?I have re-found a 1980 Rand McNally and preparing to use it for a Pa lost list.
Nice pics,is BraddockHts in operation?Can you imagine Jackie K bringing the kids there?Sorry Woody,just spotted BH on my old map and then found the middle Atlantic lost link.
