Now it's been quite awhile since I have been snowboarding but previously it was in the Cascade Mountains. However, I knew far better than to try and compare those slopes to these so I am trying really hard to stick to the most important need to know facts and not compare with bias. It was early in the season and... More

Only place close in the Southwest Virginia area to ski. Tubing is fun, skiing is fair to average. Slopes narrow and many times overcrowded. Suggest going on a weekday or at night to enjoy fully.

We had very good time skiing on the slopes of winerplace. Hills offer enough options for all levels of skiers. And the bar area servers good fast food, if you looking for excellent skiing you may get little bit disappointed. The extra bonus was great bar service in bar located next to parking lots.

I have visited Winterplace over a dozen years and found it to be ideal for our large ski group. The location for our kids, all coming from the Southeastern U.S., is ideal. They have much more consistent snow each year than the western North Carolina ski areas, is easier to get to than Snowshoe, and is large enough to accommodate... More

Winter place is a good place to go if you like to ski or snow board. The staff there is very patient and when you go to get on the lifts they slow it down for you. There are a lot of beginner trails, but there are some places that are flat and you have to push yourself off. The... More

We visited on the next-to-last weekend of the ski season, and even though there were very few guests on the mountain, I cannot adequately describe how friendly and helpful every single person we encountered was. This runs from the lift ticket agent to the snowboard instructor to the lift operators to the restaurant staff. Every single person. Many were so... More

We were happy with our experience at Winterplace. Great for small children! Staff was very patient and would slow down the lift and help my six year old get on. There are a lot of green runs which are great for beginners, but there are some places that flatten out so you have to push yourself along. The snow this... More

I am not a very good skier but this is my second time to Winterplace and I think it is pretty nice. We were late, last weekend in February and the slopes were still pretty good. I took a youth group and noone complained about anything.

On a gorgeous sunny Tuesday - school cancelled but nobody here but us and few others. Got here at 10 and we were only ones in our group lesson. Weather was perfect. Staff super friendly and helpful we had the perfect day. I love winterplace and hope we get back again this season.
