Winterplace Ski Resort in West Virginia is the ski resort to go to if you're look for a big drop in that part of West Virginia. It's got the biggest drop of any of the ski resorts within an almost 90 mile radius at 603 feet.

Winter Fun with Winterplace!

With 28 trails over 90 skiable acres and a terrain park for you to enjoy, it's the perfect ski destination for the West Virginia vacationer. The resort gets about 8 feet of snow per year that help make sure there's fresh powder for everyone. This is a family friendly resort with a large area for beginners and more trails that are for new and intermediate skiers than experts. It's small on the scale of ski resorts but that keeps it a friendly place to visit, and one that's not overly crowded so it's easy to enjoy.

Skiing and snowboarding are the main winter activities but another very popular winter activity at Winterplace is their snow tubing. There are formal hours for the tubing and a limited area to participate, but it's a fun activity you won't want to miss if you're visiting this ski resort.

Off the Slopes

Because of the smaller size of the resort the nearby lodging fills up pretty quickly, so always make reservations before you go to Winterplace. Never just rely on that hope that there will be lodging available. In the area, there are the standard hotels and motels, though fewer than you'll find around most larger ski resorts. There are a few bed and breakfasts nearby in the areas surrounding Ghent for you to enjoy, and some cabins you could rent for your ski vacation, as well.

Getting to Winterplace is as laid back a process as the time you'll have at the ski resort. It's only 2 minutes off I-77. Whether you're traveling north or south on the Interstate, Exit 28 at Ghent/Flat Top is the exit to take and you'll be at the resort in 2 minutes!
