Those planning an extended stay at the Wintergreen can expect to find over 300 different types of accommodation, from one bedroom suites for couples to seven room lodges for groups and families.

For more great views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and to experience one of the highest- rated VA ski resorts, the Massanutten Resort features a 1,100 foot vertical drop and seven ski trails along with snowboarding action at the terrain park.

In the Allegheny Mountains, the Homestead Resort is one of the oldest in Virginia, beginning as a summer spa two centuries ago when a nearby spring became renowned for is healing powers. Today, it is also famous for being the first resort in Virginia to open its doors to downhill skiers, in 1959. Although limited in size (with a total of 10 slopes on 45 acres) the Homestead offers a variety of activities for winter sports enthusiasts including skiing, snow tubing chutes, and an Olympic size ice skating rink.

Between the Blue Ridge and Allegheny Mountains, Bryce Mountain resort - located in the heart of beautiful Shenandoah Valley - is another family-friendly ski resort that offers 8 ski trails on 25 skiable acres reachable by car from Washington DC in just under two hours. .
