Winter in West Virginia

You won’t get the winter blues in West Virginia. With a long ski season and plenty of natural snowfall, you can enjoy the thrills of downhill skiing and snowboarding or a slower paced cross-country skiing trek. Families will enjoy the snow tubing parks available at several ski resorts.

Winter is a great time for a getaway because the fishing is good and small game
hunting seasons are in effect during January and February.

If you like to watch the winter weather from the comfort of the great indoors, book a
spa package at one of our great resorts or state parks. A weekend of pampering is just what you need to get you through winter and ready for spring!
