Thanks to its lofty elevation and rugged terrain, West Virginia reigns supreme in winter sports activities in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast. The Mountain State offers one of the longest seasons in the region for downhill and cross-country skiers, snowboarders and snow tubing fans. Spend the day on the slopes, then later, as the sun sets over the mountains, kick back and relax with a great meal and a warm fireplace. Overnight accommodations range from rustic cabins to cozy lodges and luxurious resorts. Restaurant dining and other amenities are available as well.
