Massanutten Resort is a four season resort featuring downhill skiing, ice skating, two golf courses, two recreation facilities, an indoor / outdoor WaterPark (open year round), and spa. Massanutten’s ski hill boasts the highest vertical in Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania - over 1,100 feet. Even with its southern location, Massanutten tends to enjoy a lengthy season - often the first resort in Virginia to open and the last to close.

Massanutten also features the Peaked Mountain Express Tubing Park. The Tubing Park features up to fourteen 900-foot lanes that drop 120 vertical feet. A carpet lift also services the Tube Park to allow fast and easy transport to the top of the hill, increasing the amount of rides each guest is able to enjoy per two hour session. A Kids’ Adventure Course featuring bridges, obstacles, and a 100-foot zip line also remain open all winter near the Tubing Park.

Massanutten’s Snow Sports Learning Center offers skiers and snowboarders programs tailored to every level of ability. Two dedicated carpet lifts are available to speed up the learning experience for beginners. The resort also hosts the Massanutten Adaptive Ski School, a non-profit educational organization dedicated to promoting alpine skiing for people of all ages with a variety of physical challenges.

Freestyle skiers and snowboarders will enjoy one of the best terrain parks in the region. The CMB Park features as many as twelve rails and jumps to satisfy thrill seekers and the Easy Street Park has smaller terrain park geared towards the needs of beginner skiers and snowboarders.

There are plenty of accommodations available, from on-mountain condos and hotels, to local lodging properties found twenty minutes from the resort in Harrisonburg, Va. Over 1,200 timeshare condominiums can be found at the resort.

For the 2020-2021 Winter Season, Massanutten will be changing some policies in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Face coverings will be required around the resort, including in lift lines and when loading and unloading on the lifts. Individual chairs will only be loaded with members from the same party. Massanutten will limit the number of guests per day, and may require reservations. View this page for the latest comprehensive details about Massanutten’s COVID-19 plans.
