Feeling hot, hot, hot?

At Wintergreen, we’re not, not, not!

Here’s how we stay cool:

  1. It’s always cooler at 3800 feet
    Wintergreen stays 12 to 15 degrees cooler than Charlottesville and more than 18 degrees lower than experienced on the same day in Richmond, Washington D.C. and Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill. Learn more about Wintergreen Weather.
  2. 10,000 acres of shade – we have lots of trees!
    Wintergreen’s cool canopy of deciduous trees helps reduce temperatures and keep you refreshed when the thermometer starts to climb. We’re very shady!
  3. A dip in the pool or the lake
    No Virginia family vacation is complete without some swimming! The Aquatics & Fitness Center has an indoor pool open year round and an outdoor pool open Memorial Weekend through Labor Day. Down in the valley, your options include the Stoney Creek Pool or Lake Monocan (open Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day). The lake offers a sandy beach and a wide range of activities both in the water and on the shore.
  4. Enjoy sipping a cool beverage on the deck at Devils Grill following a round of golf or a tennis match
    Or stay for lunch or dinner! Devils Grill's elegant contemporary American food features fresh, local, and farm-to-table ingredients. Yum! Check out the menus. Access to Devils Grill is limited to registered Wintergreen Resort guests, Wintergreen Members and guests of Members.
  5. A hike to Paul’s Water Slide or to Shamokin Falls
    Two of the most beautiful hikes on the mountain and in the valley also have air-conditioning by nature - waterfalls! Check out Upper Shamokin Falls and Paul's Water Slide.
  6. Watching the sun set over the Blue Ridge
    There are nearly endless options to enjoy the sunset, both at the resort and on the Blue Ridge Parkway. One of our favorite options on the parkway is just a few miles up the road, Ravens Roost Overlook.
  7. Listening to beautiful music at the Wintergreen Summer Music Festival
    Set among the beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains, you’ll hear classical, jazz, pop, and Broadway, plus there are cooking classes, seminars, and concerts at neighborhood wineries, cideries, and breweries. Going on now through August 6, this year's theme is “The Fountain of Youth.” Learn more about the Wintergreen Summer Music Festival.
  8. Thrills and chills at Discover Ridge Adventure Center including new ResortBoards
    Our newest activity at Discovery Ridge will zoom you around the mountain, keep the wind in your hair, and a smile on your face. ResortBoards are off-road personal transportation vehicles. They are a blast to drive - riding on one is like surfing the Earth! Learn more about ResortBoards.
  9. Exploring Nelson County’s fine craft brews, wines and ciders
    Quench your thirst and sample new flavors! Learn more about Area Attractions.
  10. Taking advantage of our cool summer overnight packages and special offers
    Your Wintergreen vacation should fit you like a glove. Check out all our packages and special offers. From Hot Rates, Buy 2, Get 3, to golf and spa packages, we have something for everybody! See all Packages and Special Offers.
