Wintergreen Resort offers great views from its great location in the heart of the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains. Wintergreen is also a bona fide year-round resort — offering golf, tennis, a spa, swimming, and many other activities.
Wintergreen Mountain peaks at 4,000 feet, bringing cool summer temperatures and helping to attract and keep snow during the winter months. The resort offers 24 slopes and trails with a respectable vertical of 1,000 feet. There are 125 skiable acres. Wide-open beginner terrain is plentiful, along with plenty of steeps to keep the experts happy.
In recent years Wintergreen has invested millions of dollars in capital improvements, including the installation of two six-passenger, high-speed lifts. Wintergreen has also continually updated its state-of-the-art computerized snowmaking system. 100% of Wintergreen’s terrain is covered by fully automated snowmaking, which can cover the equivalent of a football field with 37 feet of snow in just 24 hours.
Wintergreen also has two tubing parks, including Virginia’s largest. One park offers a gentler ride, while the other offers hair-raising runs reaching 25-40 miles per hour.
