Winter Sports at Wintergreen

“Skiing is a dance, and the mountain always leads.”  –Anonymous

Jack Frost is definitely starting to nip at Virginia noses, but that doesn’t mean that you’re confined indoors for the duration of the chill. While many outdoor activities are limited during this time of year, winter also brings about new opportunities for snow-filled adventures—skiing, snowboarding, snow-tubing, and more. You can find all of these things in Wintergreen, Virginia.

While skiing and snowboarding are the most talked about activities of choice at Wintergreen, they’re not the only ones, so have no fear if you’re not sure these winter sports are for you. Another fun option is The Plunge, “Virginia’s largest tubing park.” Or, if you’ll be visiting the area from December 26-31, you can also try out The Zip, a zipline with speeds that reach up to 40mph. Perhaps you would enjoy a more laid-back activity, and in that case, lace up your ice skates and glide across the Shamokin Ice skating rink. Bringing young children along with you? Ridgley’s Fun Park is the perfect option for weekend and holiday fun. The park includes “a mini-tubing carousel, bear paw snow shoes, tunnels, plus a gentle hill for tubing.”

Now, by the end of the day, you’ll likely be exhausted and ready to relax and warm up, and that’s where the BBAV comes in. We have numerous member inns within thirty minutes of Wintergreen, so start planning your getaway now:
