Wintergreen's accolades include "Best Ski Resort" by the WashingtonPost.com Annual Readers' Choice Awards, and a favorite North American resort by OnTheSnow.com Visitors Choice Awards.

    Amenities include hotel rooms in the main lodge to studio condominiums and seven-bedroom mountain homes, six restaurants - from The Copper Mine Bistro, a relaxed bistro serving a Mediterranean menu, to the casual fare at The Edge - a gallery of shops and the Wintergreen Nature Foundation.

    Late Fall through Early Spring - Enjoy skiing and snowboarding on 25 slopes and trails, 13 lit up for night skiing. Wintergreen's Terrain Park offers skiers and snowboarders the chance to practice freestyle skills on snow features, jibs and rails. Five ski lifts - two are six-person high speed - get you to the mountain tops fast. Slopes are classified beginner through expert.

    Snow Tubing is a family favorite on two tubing parks. The Plunge is a 900-foot, 10-lane hill dubbed "the ultimate scream machine!" And The Slide is for youngsters and those who want their thrills a bit tamer. Those who love the zipline will enjoy it even more as you soar over a beautiful, white wonderland. If you think the Plunge is fast, try soaring down 900 feet with speeds approaching 40 M.P.H. on The Zip! That's high flying thrills in under 30 seconds! The Zip is open year-round, weather permitting. 

    Early Spring through Fall - Wintergreen offers two golf courses, Devils Knob on the mountain and Stoney Creek in the valley and was rated in the Top 50 Golf Resorts in the Nation by Conde Naste Traveler. Instruction at Wintergreen Resort is available at The Wintergreen Golf Academy, or with private or semi-private lessons, regardless of age or skill level.

    The Wintergarden Spa and the Aquatics & Fitness Center includes indoor and outdoor pools, excercise equipment and world-class spa treatments in an idyllic setting for strengthening the mind and body.

    Learn rock climbing, play miniature golf, and enjoy the Skate Park at Wintergreen's Discovery Ridge Adventure Center, a family favorite!
