Here's one thing many people don't realize about our area of Virginia: It has some of the best skiing opportunities around. If you want to enjoy a winter sports season you won't forget, Rockingham has it.
When it's time to go skiing, tubing, or snowboarding, one name delivers it all: Massanutten Mountain Resort, and it's waiting for you.
Many people wait all year long for the chance to hit the ski slopes. Whether you're a triple diamond skier, just starting or prefer to lounge in the lodge, Massanutten's the place to be.
Massanutten's snow sports season runs from early December through March, with specific dates depending on weather conditions. The resort provides over a dozen trails for skiing including easy, moderate, and fiendish challenges. There's even a freestyle terrain course.
Massanutten is especially kind to beginners who want to explore skiing for the first time. With its dedicated instructors, you'll be able to learn everything you need to know quickly. You can attend tailored lessons and rent quality ski equipment perfect for first-timers.
Skiing is one of the main attractions, but it's hardly the only winter sport out there.
There's something for everyone at Massanutten Mountain Resort, even the kiddos. You can skate at the rink, go snowboarding or snow tubing, or drink in a scenic ride around the territory. There's also a team racing option for experienced skiers.
And, of course, you'll witness amazing views any time you head up on the lifts.
When you visit Massanutten, you're getting the whole ski resort experience!
After a fun day out in the cold, it's a grand time to warm up with hot cocoa by a roaring fire. Dining includes selections from the Campfire Grill, Virginia BBQ & Pizza Co., the Hideaway Lounge, or the Base Camp. You'll find options ranging from casual classics to gourmet.
If you want to treat yourself to something special, don't pass up the full spa.
The spa menu features a full selection of services like massages, body treatments, skin care, nail care, and more. There are options for men, women, and young guests. Plus, the spa also holds an assortment of classes. The couple's massage course is especially popular.
Last, but certainly not least, is the shopping. Massanutten incorporates seven distinctive boutique shopping experiences. The General Store will meet all your needs, while the Market showcases wonderful treasures from all over the state of Virginia. There's also a dedicated gift shop – Piney Mountain Gifts – as well as a Teddy Bear Factory where kids can find their perfect souvenir.
Ski season in Virginia is something you have to see to believe – and Massanutten Mountain Resort lets you do it in style. But, although skiing lasts only until the snow melts, the joy you can get from living in Rockingham County lasts all year long.
