Wintergreen season passes are a good deal and they get very busy during and after a snow. We belonged to a ski club and had a great day of skiing/boarding here. There are a variety of slopes.

My husband and I went for the a weekend. We could have just went for the day and saved some money. We skied all the slopes in a half a day and we kind of bored. This place cant compare to Snowshoe or even Winter place (and that's nothing great either). If you are learning how to ski this is... More

Compared to the other ski resort in VA, Wintergreen was better organized and updated. We skied and tubed there twice last season. The rental lodge was automated making things less chaotic than our experience at Massanutten.

This place is really a conference center with some ski runs, not the other way around. Who builds a ski resort without a lodge? Every element of this place is designed to gouge you for every possible expense. There is nowhere to stash a bag or boots, but we did find a very small breezway room on the 1st floor... More

My family of three went on a quick weekend getaway to Wintergreen on 1/29 - 1/30/15. Thursday we went tubing - tubing is awesome! It was not crowded because it was a Thursday and we had a great time and the staff on the TUBING slope were very helpful. On Friday, my husband and son went snowboarding. Both beginners, they...

Most of my skiing experience is from California, Colorado, and Europe, so my expectations weren't too high for Wintergreen. I was pleasantly surprised by the well maintained slopes. The snow, almost all of it man-made, was sufficient, and usually didn't get too slushy until later in the day. The slopes are short, and the lines get long on the weekends... More

Having grown up in the Northeast and living in the Northwest the skiing in Virginia just simply does not compare but of the places we have skied in Virginia - this is our favorite. Wish the six-person chairlift wasn't always so crowded or that they had a couple more easy trails with additional chair lift. My six year old is... More

It's not the best but it's close. The slopes are short, it can get crowded, and it is a little costly but I always have fun. The expert slopes are usually your best bet, not too hard and much less crowded.
