1. Snowboarding

Strap up your boots and get ready for an adrenaline-pumping day on the slopes of the Mountain State. Choose a beginner slope to get your footing or head to a more advanced trail if you feel ready for a little more. Find a beautiful array of slopes at any of the winter resorts in West Virginia, with something to suit every snowboarder.

2. Off-Roading

A little snow on the ground won’t stop the fun and exhilarating adventure to be found on the Hatfield-McCoy Trails. Cozy up in a local cabin or inn to make your trip to the trails extra special. Whether you have your own ATV or need to rent one from one of the many local outfitters, a day on the trail is hard to beat.

3. Rock Climbing

While you may benefit from some heavier layers, outdoor rock climbing is just as fun in the winter as it is during the warmer months. Guided climbing is a great option for beginners who are hoping to make their way on the rock for the first time. Wait for a sunny winter’s day or head out on a snowy one for a one-of-a-kind bouldering experience.

4. Skiing

A ski adventure is the cornerstone of winter fun in Almost Heaven. This beloved snowy activity is a fan-favorite thanks to the feeling of freedom one gets as they fly down a powdery slope. West Virginian ski resorts are in no shortage, with each offering a variety of trails as well as other cozy amenities.

5. Caving

With year-round cool temperatures, the caves lying beneath Almost Heaven are an exciting winter escape. The wide variety of caverns across the Mountain State offer something for every spelunker. Whether you are looking for a mild walk along a lit pathway or a more extreme trek with crawling involved, you are sure to find what you are looking for.
