7 PLACES FOR LOCAL WINTER FUN

While winter certainly can make going outside less enjoyable, there are many fun ways you can take advantage of the cold weather. Our area has several winter resorts that offer family-friendly snow tubing just an hour or two away. If you need a bit more snow to play in, we’ve also included a few resorts that are farther away. Before you get on the road, remember to check height and age requirements, as well as ticket availability. You should also wear snow boots or waterproof boots and dress for the weather (layers, hats, gloves and snow pants). Most importantly, follow the rules and have fun!

Just an hour’s drive away is Wintergreen Resort’s The Plunge, the largest tubing park in Virginia. After riding up the park’s conveyer lift, guests can zoom down its 10-story tubing lanes at speeds reaching 30 mph. The park recommends The Plunge for ages 6 and up and requires children to be at least 42 inches tall. Younger and smaller children can take part in the tubular fun at Ridgely’s Fun Park. wintergreenresort.com

Also close to home is Massanutten Resort’s Family Adventure Park. Snow tubing is very popular here and regularly sells out, especially on weekends and holidays. Tickets are available online as well as in person starting 30 minutes before the first session. Because gold card holders and resort guests may purchase tickets a day in advance, often causing busy days to sell out the day before, make sure to call the park to check ticket availability. Children must be at least 36 inches tall. massresort.com

If there’s no snow yet, you can visit Liberty University’s Snowflex Centre. Made of a plastic material called Neveplast, Liberty’s tubing runs are open year-round. The nursery slope is for ages 2 and up, while the two main tubing runs are for ages 5 and up. liberty.edu/snowflex

 

 

Located just north of Harrisonburg, Bryce Resort’s Tubing Park features 800-foot tubing lanes. Sessions are one hour and 30 minutes long, and tickets are sold online or in person on the day of your session. Children must be at least 4 years old and 36 inches tall. bryceresort.com

If you are looking for a more upscale destination, consider the Homestead Resort in Hot Springs. Sessions are one hour long at the Penguin Slides Tubing Park and require reservations. End the day with yummy s’mores on the Casino Lawn. Participants must be at least 5 years old and 48 inches tall. thehomestead.com

For taller mountains and a longer snow season, visit Snowshoe Mountain’s Coca-Cola Tube Park in West Virginia. The park offers five six-story tubing lanes and two-hour sessions. Advanced reservations are strongly recommended, and children can be 4 years old and younger, but will have a separate area for them to play at. snowshoemtn.com

Finally, just a three-hour drive away is Winterplace Ski Resort, West Virginia’s largest tubing park. Two “super carpet” conveyor lifts whisk you back up the hill after each run. Children must be at least 44 inches tall to tube, but smaller children can join in on the fun at the Kiddie Park, weather permitting. winterplace.com

Winter Activities in Wintergreen and Charlottesville, Virginia

Winter is here, but you certainly don’t have to equate the seasonal chill with being housebound. Nelson County and the surrounding areas provide a number of cold-weather activities to keep you occupied and give you a fun, frigid adrenaline rush. Now, most of these options are right down the road from Afton Mountain B&B at Wintergreen Resort, so you won’t have to travel very far to find the ice and snow. Your other options are only a quick drive away in Charlottesville, VA, so grab a calendar, and start planning your getaway:

  1. Ice Skating: Whether you’re a beginner who can barely stand without holding onto the rail or an experienced skater with skills that rival an ice hockey champion, you’ll find yourself enjoying our local skating rinks: Shamokin Ice Rink at Wintergreen or Main Street Arena in Charlottesville
  2. Skiing: Slip on your skis, grab your poles, take a lift to the top of Wintergreen, then soar your way down the slopes. Unsure about your skiing abilities? Check out one of Wintergreen’s instructional classes and brush up on your skills.
  3. Snowboarding: Beginners, pros, and snowboarders of all levels in between are welcome to the hit the slopes and carve the snow. As with skiing, Wintergreen also offers classes for those who wish to learn a bit more about snowboarding.
  4. Snow Tubing: Maybe you’d prefer being off your feet as you race down the mountainside, and if that’s the case, snow tubing will be perfect for you. Wintergreen just so happens to boast Virginia’s largest tubing park, a merry monstrosity known as The Plunge. Take The Plunge, and slide your way down at speeds up to 30 mph.               
  5. Spa Services: Okay, so this technically isn’t a cold-weather activity, but it’s definitely the perfect way to recover after a day of frigid frolicking amidst the snow and ice. Relax with a body wrap, a facial, or a massage at the Spa at Wintergreen. Unwind with body exfoliation, a deep relief warming wrap, or an aromatherapy massage.
  6. Local Libations: Nothing warms you from the inside out quite like a glass of wine, a growler of beer, or a bottle of hard cider. After your outdoor recreation and your spa wind-down, warm up and relax with a beverage from one of our local wineries, breweries, or cideries.

We look forward to your winter arrival!

SNOW TUBING IN SPRING '21

Wintergreen Resort Tubing

wintergreen snow tubingThe Plunge Snow Tubing Park at Wintergreen VA. Resort in Virginia is an amazing place to go tubing whether you are at Wintergreen Ski Resort just for a ski vacation, or you are watching your loved ones enjoy the near perfect conditions this season. Snow Tubing is an activity that can be enjoyed by virtually everyone and the amazing Snow Tubing lanes at Wintergreen Resort will truly give you the thrill of a lifetime. The Snow Tubing hill at Wintergreen VA. Resort is longer than three football fields put together, well over 900 feet long, and the park is the largest in the state of Virginia! Can you imagine plummeting down from the top of a ten story building? We couldn’t either, but that’s the kind of thrilling feeling you will get when you slide down the tubing hill at Wintergreen Resort. Some riders even get a top speed of 30 mph. That is why Wintergreen Resort Virginia is the most popular tubing spot in the region!

After sliding down the hill, a conveyor lift will bring you and your tube right back to the top spot on the hill so you can go sliding down many times during your Snow Tubing sessions at Wintergreen Ski Resort. Only one tuber per craft is allowed, but tubers can “hook” into one another’s tubes and tube down the lane together—groups have even gone down together! Tube at your own risk. Children ages 6 and up are allowed to tube alone, and you must be 42″ in height to take the plunge at the Snow Tubing park at Wintergreen Resort. Snow tubing sessions are quite popular at Wintergreen VA. Resort, and often sell out fast. You can call and purchase snow tubing tickets for sessions taking place over the next seven days online on the Wintergreen site, or by calling 434-325-2100 and pressing option #3. You will want to arrive about an hour prior to the session that you have purchased tickets for. Be sure to dress warmly; water repellent shoes and clothing are best. There are discounts available for groups of 20 or more. Tickets for Snow Tubing at Wintergreen Resort can also be purchased at The Dome from 1pm to 8pm Monday through Thursday or directly at The Plunge’s sales office Friday through Sunday. On weekends a free shuttle will make continuous runs from the Mountain Inn lodging area, Wintergarden and Devils Knob Golf satellite parking areas.
