Virginia Ski Resorts

Ski Resorts in Virginia: Plenty of Terrain and Fun


Virginia's Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains are home to four ski resorts that offer downhill skiing, snowboarding, snow tubing and cross-country trails.


Wintergreen Resort is an 11,000-acre, four-season resort located in the Blue Ridge Mountains southwest of Charlottesville, Va.


The area offers skiing, snowboarding and tubing as well as championship golf once the snow melts. Ski slopes range from the double black Cliffhanger to Diamond Hill for beginners.

There is an on-site spa and high-quality restaurants. Wintergreen Resort is located adjacent to the Blue Ridge Parkway in Central Virginia near Charlottesville, 90 minutes from Richmond. Ski and play in the terrain park, or take The Plunge - a 900-foot, 10-lane mega snow tubing hill, located in the Discovery Ridge Adventure Center. There is 100 percent snowmaking.


Massanutten Resort means days spent on an 1,100-foot vertical drop – the Virginia ski resort with the longest vertical - with great views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Ski down the 3,400-foot Diamond Jim or the 4,100-foot Para-dice. The terrain park is for riders, skiboarders and twin tip skiers. Night skiing is available.

The Homestead has welcomed travelers to Virginia’s Allegheny Mountains for more than two centuries. Why? Those legendary healing springs. Today, its historic halls still resound with the lore of visits by American presidents and foreign princes, tales of affluence and attrition and, ultimately, resounding success as one of America’s most beloved and storied resorts.


The Homestead was the first southern resort to introduce downhill skiing. The year was 1959. They were catering to returning American GIs who had become fans of the sport while serving in Europe.


The Homestead boasts 10 ski trails and snow tubing. Snowshoeing and snowmobiling also are offered as weather permits.
