Wintergreen Resort in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia has Christmas plans for the whole family.

The resort's brand new ice arena, Shamokin Ice, will be up and running for the holidays as well, offering another winter activity for vacationers during the Christmas-New Year holiday.

Wintergreen's own Santa will be on the slopes, skiing, handing out candy canes to all, and posing for family picture.

The resort is hosting a Christmas Eve Breakfast with Santa, a Christmas Eve worship service followed by refreshments, and a Candlelight Christmas Eve Buffet in Copper Mine Bistro.

Kids get a Teddy Bear tuck-in.

Resort plans for the holiday also include a Christmas Dinner, family scavenger hunts, Winter Carnival at Discovery Ridge, family movies and game nights, and New Year's Eve celebrations.

Wintergreen Resort encompasses 11,000 acres of mountain top hideaway in the high peaks of the Blue Ridge Mountains, offering spectacular natural vistas.

Wintergreen offers 26 slopes on 129 skiable acres with two high-speed chairlifts, with extensive beginner-to-expert terrain broken into 23 percent beginner, 35 percent intermediate, and 42 percent advanced. Fourteen slopes are lighted for night skiing and the resort's longest run is 1.4 miles. Two terrain parks and the region's top snowtubing park accent the winter recreational offerings.
