Virginia Skiing & Snowboarding
Not many historic, luxury resorts can say they have their own ski slopes on property, but then again, we’re not like most resorts. This year, we’re proud to offer the Southeast’s only Rossignol Experience Center featuring Rossignol’s award-winning Experience skis with Auto Turn Rocker and the latest ski innovations. This provides skiers of all ages and abilities with more versatility, ease-of-use, and progressive all-mountain performance than ever before. Beginner to advanced skiers will benefit from the unique combination of our Sepp Kober Ski School and Rossignol Experience Center. For more about the Rossignol Experience Center, click here. Non-skiers can ice skate on our outdoor rink, try snow tubing or explore the winter landscape on a snowmobile. Then warm up with fireside s’mores and hot cocoa at the Mountain Lodge and call it a perfect day.
**Special group discounts and “free” ski and snowboard lessons with rentals for groups of 15 or more people! For more information, contact Director Clay Robinson at or [email protected].

Allegheny Springs Winter Wonderland offers ice skating and swimming throughout the colder months. Full-day and half-day ice skating passes as well as skate rentals are available. Hotel guests can take a dip in the steamy waters at the heated, spring-fed outdoor pool and relax on chaise lounges on the warmed deck surrounded by mountain landscape. The nearby Allegheny Springs Grill will be open all winter serving hot cocoa and snacks.
The Omni Homestead is arguably the nicest ski resort in the region if you are into amenities and pampering! (At least that is what SkiSoutheast.com surveys have stated.) They offer ten very nice ski runs for skiing and snowboarding enjoyment, as well as snow tubing, skating, snowmobile tours, and more. Snowboarders will love the half-pipe.
The Omni Homestead Resort is renowned in the area as the perfect family and learn-to-ski area.
Although winter activities are only a SMALL part of what The Omni Homestead offers, they do get an average of 50 inches of natural snowfall per season and definitely “do winter right!”

Snowmobiling is a great activity for the whole family and The Homestead offers half-hour to half-day tours on the trails around the resort. They also offer evening tours on the slopes of the ski resort. Available mid December – March, weather permitting.
Two words can be used to describe the unmatchable amenities at The Omni Homestead – “Oh My!” They offer 10 restaurants, a spa and salon, ski shop, ski school, special Omni packages and much more.
