Riders Guide

Wintergreen Ski Resort, with 26 trails over 126 skiable acres and a vertical drop of over 1,000 feet, offers enough ski action for most skiers, but does cater to beginners and families more than the expert skier. The top mountain elevation is about 3,500 feet which measure up to many other mountain resort areas. There are 5 chair lifts and 2 surface lifts with a capacity of about 11,200 skiers hourly. The longest run is 1.4 miles, and about 14 slopes are regularly lit for night skiing. The mix of trails is 23% beginner, about 42% for advanced and expert skiers and the rest are intermediate and fairly challenging.

Parks and Pipes

Wintergreen's 2 terrain parks offers up a huge number of features for boarders, but they reshape the park regularly so you'll never know exactly what's there to enjoy. Spines, hips and tabletops are just some of the features they regularly have available. Many of the features are kept lower than average in one area that's designed for the beginning snowboarder. New beginner features and lower tabletops were part of the terrain park improvements this season. A half-pipe is available for boarders to test those free-styling skills, too.

Out of Bounds

Because Wintergreen has the biggest snow tubing park in Virginia, this is a top destination for those who've had their daily fill of skiing and snowboarding. If you've been snow tubing before, you probably haven't experienced it like this. The Plunge is Wintergreen's tubing park that offers a 100-foot vertical drop. Snow tubers hit speeds of up to 40 miles per hour, making this a don't-miss activity at Wintergreen. There's also The Zip. Hang on to the bar and zip down the trail for 900 feet, reaching speeds up to 40 miles per hair. Guests must be 8 or older and weigh between 75 and 250 pounds to Zip down this ride.

Hangout & Hookup

At the resort there are a variety of bars and restaurants where you can enjoy après-ski, as well as many locations near the area where people can enjoy a drink or a hot beverage after a day on the snow.
