Wintergreen Virginia’s Premier Ski Resort

Discover Wintergreen Resort: Your Ultimate Winter Retreat!

Are you a ski enthusiast longing for the perfect winter getaway? Look no further than Wintergreen Resort in the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.

Originally from Utah, we understand the thrill of skiing and sought a smaller resort for our family’s annual ski trip. That’s when we stumbled upon Wintergreen Resort, a true vacation destination that combines skiing with the laid-back relaxation and hospitality of the South.

As we made our way up the mountain, winding through loops and S-Turns, we couldn’t help but admire the stunning views and the unique beauty of the Virginia landscape. And then we saw it—the sign for Wintergreen Resort, our winter wonderland of festivities, premier snow sports, and exciting outdoor activities.

Wintergreen Resort offers 24 slopes where our kids couldn’t wait to swish down after their first ski lesson. With five lifts available, including ski boots, skis, and helmets for rental, the Wintergreen staff provided hands-on assistance to ensure the perfect fit and comfort for our family.

But Wintergreen Resort is more than just skiing. We discovered a world of adventure beyond the slopes. From well-marked nature trails, perfect for hiking and exploring the Appalachian Trail, to the exhilarating Shamokin Ice rink, where skaters of all ages can enjoy a spin on the ice, Wintergreen Resort offers something for everyone.

This mountain was the highest elevation we have been since moving here. The stick trees against the red Virginia dirt and rust-colored foilage were admired even by the children.

The kiddos thought it was amazing that we drove up in warmer winter weather and were greeted by a white carpet of winter possibilities.
Tomorrow they would have their first ski lesson, and they bragged about being able to swish down one of Wintergreen’s 24 slopes. MacKenzie confessed she was apprehensive about the ski lifts  (Wintergreen offers five lifts).

After a day of outdoor excitement, we settled into our comfortable and spacious accommodations at Wintergreen Condos. With 230 villa-style condominiums and rental homes, equipped with kitchens, fireplaces, and balconies or decks, our stay felt like a true extension of mountain lodging.

We took a tour of the condo. The decor and attention to detail made our home away from home a true extension of mountain lodging.

When hunger struck, we headed to The Edge, a casual and family-friendly restaurant located right on the Wintergreen slopes. We indulged in delicious appetizers, such as the Loggers Tortilla Spring Rolls and Crab Dip, and savored flavorful sandwiches and hearty entrees—all while enjoying the best view of the mountain.

The Edge’s energetic bar, featuring live music seasonally, added to the vibrant atmosphere. And the sundaes, like the signature Black Rock Sundae, were a hit with the kids.

It was beautiful and did not slow the staff down. We were able to catch a shuttle to Blackrock Village and enjoy breakfast at The Copper Mine.
Snow sports never fail to work muscles that will benefit from some soothing peppermint pampering at Wintergreen Spa, the full-service facility adjacent to the Aquatics and Fitness Center, indoor swimming pool, and outdoor Jacuzzi hot tubs.
