The Ultimate Winter Day in West Virginia

When its wintertime in the Mountain State, there’s never a dull moment. Whether you’re simply sipping hot cocoa in front of a cozy fire or night skiing down a black diamond, an adventure is always awaiting you in West Virginia.

To achieve the ultimate winter day in Almost Heaven, start your day at The Greenbrier. At this gorgeous resort, you can choose from an array of winter activities. Take a sleigh ride through the sparkling snow-covered grounds or go ice skating with lights, music and even a rinkside fire pit surrounding you. Once you’re here, you won’t want to leave this magical winter wonderland.

If you’re up for more winter adventures, make the trip to Stonewall Resort State Park. It’s a perfect place for cozy lounging and winter views. Visit the lodge’s lakeside heated indoor/outdoor pool and patio area, a popular gathering spot thanks to its flaming fire pit and comfy seating that is perfect for enjoying s’mores and sharing stories. If you just can’t get enough s’mores, head to TJ Muskies Bar and Grill, which features a cast iron s’mores bake dessert on their menu. Just picture bittersweet chocolate melted under toasted marshmallows with honey graham crackers for dipping. Yum!

Once you’ve thoroughly indulged in tasty treats at Stonewall Resort State Park head to Snowshoe Mountain Resort for outdoor adventure, shopping, dining and incredible mountain views. After skiing or snowboarding down one of Snowshoe’s 60 trails, finish the day at Foxfire Grille, a beautiful restaurant with a cozy and welcoming atmosphere. On the menu, they feature a pan seared barbecued salmon, surf and turf, roasted pork shank and for dinner try the hot apple dumpling served with praline sauce, vanilla ice cream and pecan garnish.

After a fun-filled day full of winter adventures in the Mountain State no activity packed day will ever compare.
