Winter brings other outdoor recreation opportunities only eight miles from the entrance to Glade Springs. With an annual snowfall of over 48 inches and temperatures that allow for great snowmaking, Winterplace Ski Resort makes winter fun for everyone. The resort boasts the largest snow tubing park in West Virginia and is considered the #1 place to learn to ski in the Southeast. With 100% snow making on all 27 slopes and terrain park, night skiing is available on all but one slope.
Just 2 hours north is Snowshoe Ski Resort which receives 15 feet of snow each winter and has over 60 trails featuring different terrains and runs that are ideal for every skill level. Snowshoe Village, perched atop the mountain, offers dinning, shopping, and the Big Top entertainment hub. Often after a snow, Glade residents with golf course views will see neighbors taking advantage of the great cross-country skiing on our golf course fairways.
