New Terrain

  • We are extremely excited about our first major terrain expansion in 30 years! This winter will see the opening of three new trails off the Peak Quad and change the way Massanutten skis for years to come.
  • Mueller’s Mile, a “Blue Square” or More Difficult trail will provide awesome views with twists and turns for intermediate skiers and rider’s delight.  
  • Ridgecrest, another “Blue Square” trail will connect Paradice to Mass Transit improving connectivity between the Ridge Triple chair and Peak Quad trails and provide another route down from Peak Quad for intermediate skiers/riders.  
  • Slot, a “Black Diamond” or Most Difficult trail will offer an alternative route for advanced skiers/riders off of the Diamond Jim trail and connect with Mueller’s Mile. All three new trails will be lit with LED lighting for night skiing and riding.
  • We’ve added 84 automated and semi-automated HKD, Tecno Alpin, and SMI snowmakers to cover the new and existing terrain. Mueller's Mile and Ridgecrest will primarily be covered with low energy HKD snowmakers, Upper and Lower Showtime will also see snowmaking love with the addition of Tecno Alpin fan snowmakers top to bottom to help us open and resurface terrain faster than ever before. Easy Street, Paul’s Way, and Meadow will also see new SMI Snowmakers.
  • We didn’t want to leave out the grooming team so we also added a new Piston Bulley groomer to the fleet for the coming season.
  • The new terrain and snowmaking improvements will be transformational to the skiing and riding experience at Massanutten. But, we’re not done yet! Next summer will see the installation of a new detachable high speed lift to replace the Peak Quad and the addition of another new Double Black Diamond, experts only trail, and a revitalized Bike Park.

Rental Shop & Lessons

  • The improvements don’t stop there! The rental shop has expanded into the Learning Center to improve flow and provide space for new rental equipment and direct to snow access.
  • Limited seasonal equipment rentals will be available for this season.Click here for more info.
  • The Snow Sports School is bringing back a new children’s program and limited group lessons. Click here for more info.

Going Green!

  • Massanutten’s Sustainability Committee has been hard at work since Summer of 2021 to make lasting changes that will help reduce our carbon emissions. In 2021, we joined NSAA’s Climate Challenge. Since then we have initiated the process to install solar arrays in three different locations across the resort, upgraded to LED lighting on the ski trails, and trading out snow guns for ones that are more efficient. These are only a few examples of the many projects going on around the resort! Learn more here.
  • Electric vehicle charging stations.
  • Water fountains for reusable bottles around the Ski Lodge and Learning Center which help to eliminate single-use plastic water bottle use!
  • Waste oil heating furnace used to heat the snowmaking maintenance building in winter by recycling used motor oil.
  • Recycling bins located around the Resort. Fun Fact: Massanutten diverts more than 150,000 pounds of recyclable material from the landfill annually!

Resort Guest Shuttle

  • The Resort Guest Shuttle will be offered for the winter season! Massanutten Resort is happy to announce its newest initiative in creating a fun, safe and environmentally-friendly community for its owners & guests. By partnering with TripShot, an on-demand transportation provider, guests will now have the opportunity to enjoy their vacation worry-free of directions, parking, and gas mileage! More details coming soon!
