Terrain Parks - Winterplace

Riders Guide

With over 8 feet of snow per year, 28 trails and 9 lifts that are almost always all up and operating, Winterplace is a great place if you're looking to just stay on the slopes. Because the vertical drop isn't huge as compared to many resorts at only just over 600 feet, if you're looking for a screaming downhill challenge you might be disappointed. Only 15% of the runs are advanced. Of the runs that are left, about half are intermediate and challenging enough for the average skier, and half are designed just for beginners. Winterplace is a great place for beginners because of the smaller drop and the number of beginner runs, but if you're looking for the best ski action available in that area, Winterplace does have the biggest drop of the resorts in that region.

Parks and Pipes

For boarders, Winterplace offers a terrain park and a half-pipe. The terrain park is filled with gaps, hips, and a variety of tabletops and rails to offer challenges, and during this ski season they're expanding the terrain park to add even more great features. The half-pipe is a great place to work on your boarding skills. The terrain park isn't designed for the expert boarder, though there's a lot there for even a very experienced boarder to enjoy. Beginners will enjoy some of the easier features that are designed to let them learn skills and move up to the bigger challenges.

Out of Bounds

Probably the most popular activity aside from skiing and snowboarding is snow tubing, and taking classes at the ski school at Winterplace. Of course, if you're looking for some fun away from the resort, you can find things like spas, theaters and entertainment just a few minutes down the road. There are a number of things to do and see off I-77 which is just a few minutes from the resort, so it's easy to spend a day doing other things and sightseeing if you're ready for a break from the slopes.

Hangout & Hookup

The main lodge is a popular place for people to gather après-ski, but there are a number of nightclubs and bars in the Winterplace area, many of them off the Interstate and just a short drive away.
