Whether you have made New Year’s resolutions to get in shape or just want to make the most of your winter vacation, there are dozens of activities you can enjoy at Wintergreen Resort. This mountain paradise encompasses 11,000 acres of nature trails, golf course fairways, a world-class terrain park, award-winning spa and fitness center, and other enjoyable amenities. Here’s how you can enjoy the best activities this resort has to offer.

1. Go Skiing or Snowboarding

Wintergreen Resort’s signature feature is its incredible ski slopes. For years, it has received awards for “Best Terrain Park,” “Best Ski Resort,” and “Best Snow Skiing Spot” from publications such as Blue Ridge Outdoors Magazine, Blue Ridge Country Magazine, and the Washington Post. Ski season is officially underway — enjoy!

If you love to spend time on the slopes and are considering buying a vacation home, why not consider one of these walk-to-ski units or ski-front condos for sale?

2. Exercise at the Aquatics & Fitness Center

Cardio, weightlifting, and swimming are activities you can enjoy at Wintergreen’s excellent fitness center. Fitness programs, such as yoga and water aerobics, are also available for resort visitors and vacation home owners.

If you want to be close to the spa and fitness center, consider a condo at Highlands, North Ridge, Stone Ridge, or Trillium Place.

3. Play Tennis, Even When It’s Snowing

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

Strap on your skates and hit the ice — Wintergreen Resort’s Shamokin Ice is one of the best ways to stay active and make the most of your winter vacation. This winter amenity is popular among guests and property owners, so make sure you reserve your tickets early.
