11 Fun Winter Activities Other Than Skiing and Snowboarding

Wintergreen Resort is known for its skiing. In fact, it’s earned numerous accolades over the years for “Best Terrain Park” (Blue Ridge Outdoor Magazine), “Best Snow Skiing Spot” (Washington Post), “Top 10 Ski Reports” (SkiResorts.com, the ultimate guide to ski resorts), and “Best Place to Learn to Ski” (also Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine), just to name a few.

But there’s more to Wintergreen Resort than its award-winning ski slopes. In fact, there are plenty of ways to stay active even if you don’t know how to ski or snowboard. Here are just a few winter activities you can enjoy at the resort that have nothing to do with skiing.

Some of Wintergreen’s activities and attractions are seasonal while some are year-round. If you have a question about what’s open, just give us a call at (877) 296-9860.

With 19 outdoor courts and 3 indoor courts available at Wintergreen Resort, you can play tennis any time of year, even when it’s snowing. The indoor tennis courts are located at the Devils Knob tennis facility, which is where you’ll also find the Wintergreen Tennis Academy.

4. Golf at the Stoney Creek Course

Wintergreen’s mountaintop golf course, Devils Knob, may be closed for the season, but its sister golf course is playable year round. Since the Stoney Creek Golf Course is located in the beautiful Rockfish River valley, the weather around this course is typically several degrees warmer than the Devils Knob course, allowing you to go skiing on the mountain in the morning and golfing in valley in the afternoon.

5. Go Ice Skating at Shamokin Ice
