Terrain Park

The Terrain Park offers both skiers and riders the chance to hone their freestyle skills, and is designed to accommodate a variety of skill levels. Some of the varieties of rails that you might find on any given day are rainbows, straight rails, battle ships, down-kinks, s-rails and fun boxes. As for snow features, there might be tabletops, spines, or hips. Look for something new each time you come to ski or ride.

Tubing at Wintergreen

The Plunge at Wintergreen Resort is Virginia’s largest tubing park. Imagine being on top of a ten story building and looking out over a hill that’s longer than three football fields. Now imagine going downhill on a tube at speeds reaching 30 mph. That’s The Plunge! Thrills and chills without the spills. To make it even easier, our conveyor lift will bring you and your tube comfortably and quickly back up the hill so you can do it again and again. Some of our guests call it the “scream machine” and we think you’ll agree! It’s just plain tubular fun.
