When the air turns cold and the snow falls the mountain state becomes the winter wonderland of the east. West Virginia's snowy slopes feel far away from everywhere but they are exactly where you want to be for winter activities. It is where you will find the highest elevations in the east and mountain resorts with some of the best skiing and snowboarding around. West Virginia's wild and wonderful winter fun make it one of the most exciting places to go for snow and nearly everything else to do outdoors.
Where is your West Virginia?
Light displays have become a popular holiday tradition around the country as families and institutions erect a wide variety of holiday light displays. Few, though, come anywhere close to the size and variety of the Winter Festival of Lights at the Oglebay Resort in West Virginia.
Covering more than 300 acres and over six miles of driving, this festival light display is one you are sure to remember!
West Virginia has a long skiing season and lots of natural snowfall, so its state parks are a natural destination for short holiday vacations. North Bend State Park, for example, has several different packages every year that provide special holiday activities in addition to their usual array of winter sports and recreation.
