Mystic Mountain Ski Area is part of the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort & Spa, a four-season resort that offers plenty of activities year-round in a luxurious setting. You probably won’t go to Mystic Mountain just for the skiing — you’ll only find six slopes with a short vertical of 300 feet — but if you visit to experience the elegance and vast array of activities available at Nemacolin, it’s a nice bonus to have some ski slopes on site in the wintertime.
Note that for the 2020-2021 winter season, skiing at Mystic Mountain will only be available to overnight guests of the resort.
Nemacolin has 10 restaurants, two PGA-rated golf courses, sporting clays, an equestrian center, and a spa. The Chateau LaFayette, in the French Renaissance style, offers elegantly appointed accommodations. A historic mountain lodge is also available, along with one and two bedroom townhouses. During the winter, Nemacolin runs a small ski area with both downhill and cross county skiing.
The ski area lacks vertical depth, topping out at 300 vertical feet, but the resort also offers snow tubing and snowshoeing. 15 kilometers of cross-country skiing are available, conditions permitting. Note that the Mystic Mountain ski area is typically only open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays; call Nemacolin before planning a trip to verify the operating schedule.
Rentals, group discounts, and lessons are available, and on-site restaurants include the Hungry Moose Café and the Hitchin’ Post Saloon, both located within the Sundial Ski Lodge.
