Winter Activities

Winter fun at our Virginia ski resort
Ice Skating at The Omni Homestead Resort

Winter, when the Allegheny Mountains are blanketed in white, is the perfect time to embark on a ski trip at The Omni Homestead Resort. With more than 45 acres of wide, well-maintained trails, our slopes are perfect for beginners and not-so-beginners. But for those beginners, we offer lessons at Sepp Kober Ski School.


Not really a skier? Try the ice skating rink. And at the end of the day, enjoy fireside s’mores at the firepit on the Casino Lawn or hot cocoa at the Mountain Lodge.
