Want to snack on tasty fall treats? How about take a scenic ride on a chairlift? This weekend, you’ll be able to do all of that and more at the Columbus Day Weekend celebration at Wintergreen Resort!
Fun for the Whole Family
The Discovery Ridge Adventure Center is the hub of the excitement at the Columbus Day festivities, where you and your family can enjoy a full day of fun at the bungee trampoline, climbing wall, and mini golf, and find all kinds of things to do, both indoors and out.
Ride the Chairlifts
The only weekend to ride the chairlifts this fall is to come celebrate Columbus Day.
