This would include some of our Resort swimming pools. We will post an update on here and on the Massanutten WaterPark page as soon as we have more information. Reopening responsibly and as safely as possible is our number one priority and it takes time to do it right. 

We do have many offerings available now. Continue to check www.massresort.com/hours for the latest news. 


Massanutten Resort in Virginia Announces a Phased Reopening Starting June 12, 2020 

Update May 21, 2020

Premier All-Season Resort in Virginia Is Getting Ready for its Phased Reopening by Conducting Staff Trainings, Revamping its Activity Program, Deep Cleaning the Property and More

McGaheysville, Va. – May 21, 2020 – Massanutten Resort, a premier all-season resort destination in the heart of Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, today announced its plans to reopen operations in phases starting June 12th. As part of the initial reopening phase, the resort will open at partial capacity, and amenity availability will be based upon current guidance/restrictions from the Virginia Department of Health and Governor’s office. In preparation for its reopening, Massanutten Resort employees are preparing the property and undergoing extensive training on safety and operational protocols.

“Our property is unique in both its size and variety of amenities, and we’ve taken the development of our new re-opening plans and protocols very seriously,” said Matthias Smith, general manager at Massanutten Resort. “We take great pride in delivering remarkable experiences, and we are looking forward to welcoming guests once again to enjoy the mountain vistas and breathe in the fresh air."

Upon opening, Massanutten's retail shops, day spa, golf courses and restaurants will be available for guests to enjoy, though there will be limitations to hours of operation and capacity, along with some operational changes. For guests that wish to dine at the restaurants, calling ahead to reserve their preferred dining time is recommended. In an effort to manage guest flow, reduce time spent on each transaction and reduce lines, the resort also recommends that all amenity tickets are pre-purchased, either online on the resort’s website or over the phone. Queue lines will be properly marked for guests’ convenience.

Massanutten's mission statement is "to provide remarkable experiences in a safe and enjoyable environment" and the resort is committed to standing by this. The resort is working on a revamp of their activity program, which will abide by restrictions, while still providing a great vacation experience. A couple of the new programs currently in development are a weekly resort parade led by Massanutten’s mascot Theo the Bear and a drive-up movie experience, utilizing the space available in the ski area.

Rigorous cleaning and disinfecting procedures at the resort covers accommodations, public areas and office spaces. These procedures include frequent sanitization of high-contact points, such as elevator buttons, door handles, reception counters, chairs, windows and restrooms. Furthermore, guests are advised to follow all of their local and state guidelines and restrictions, e.g. stay-at-home orders or travel restrictions, that are active during their intended dates of stay at the Resort.

Massanutten Resort - COVID-19
Update May 6, 2020

Even though we are still closed, our teams have been hard at work preparing the property and training our employees for the day that we can re-open. Currently our Commonwealth is still in a stay-at-home order and under non-essential travel restrictions, however, we are hopeful that these restrictions will start to ease up in the coming weeks. We are looking forward to the day when we can welcome you back to the mountain. In the meantime, know that we are doing the very best we can to take care of ourselves and our property. We hope you are all doing good and staying well.

Hopefully these sacrifices we are all required to make will have the desired results so we can welcome you all back sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, we want to work with you to reschedule your visit. This can be done by using the following contact list:

Massanutten Resort - COVID-19
Update March 31, 2020

All playground equipment at Massanutten Resort is closed as part of our response to limiting the spread of COVID-19 in our community. This includes the play structures at Woodstone Recreation Center, James E. Lambert Park and Lions Centennial Community Park, as well as all fitness stations and bathhouses across the resort.

Open green spaces and outdoor areas such as basketball, tennis, & volleyball courts will remain usable at this time, but we are unable to provide equipment for use by the public. We are unable to commit staff to constantly sanitize and/or monitor the number of individuals at our parks, so please use your best judgment and adhere to the CDC guidelines that are in place at this time. Continue to practice social distancing while using our parks and other green areas, keep at least 6 feet of space, and wash your hands often.

  • Maintain at least 6 feet distance from those that are coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Clean your hands often by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60%–95% alcohol. (Tired of singing “Happy Birthday” while you are washing your hands? This website will make any song into a handwashing jingle!)
  • in the wastebasket. If you do not have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your sleeve in the elbow. In either case, wash your hands thoroughly after.
  • If you are healthy, it is not necessary to wear a facemask. Facemasks are most effective when used by people who are already ill to prevent the spread of germs. Please protect our healthcare workers.
