Massanutten Ski Resort Professional Review and Guide

"Located 2,880 feet high on the windy tip of Massanutten Mountain, Massanutten is a popular, well-run ski area serving guests from Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley and the Washington, DC area. The resort was initially developed by Del Webb, co-owner of the New York Yankees during the early 1970s. Massanutten is unique in that it’s the only Mid-Atlantic ski area to exist inside and in conjunction with a residential community. With over 1,000 single-family lots, Massanutten Village sits along the valley below the mountain’s ski area, and even has its own police department and road maintenance crew. The resort is considered a “metropolitan” ski area because of its proximity to the growing city of Harrisonburg—home to James Madison University.

The trail network is broken up by a midsection, requiring two lifts to reach the summit. Massanutten has committed its resources to developing both a model family-ski setting and a wild snowboarding haven at the same time. The secluded snowboard park is one of the Mid-Atlantic’s outstanding aerial arenas: An array of jumps and obstacles offer big-time air to a growing number of boarders from Virginia and Washington, DC."
