Virginia’s The Homestead Offers Winter Ski & Skate Package

Opening a week earlier than last year, the state-of-the-art snow-making equipment and expert grooming, offer great conditions. The Homestead offers skiers two lifts and nine trails, offering experiences for every level of skier.

For families with kids not ready for skiing or snowboarding, The Homestead introduces the Little Penguins program offering younger guests, ages 3 to 12, the chance to build snowmen and sled while the adults hit the slopes. A special Ski & Skate package, offered January 2, 2011 with rates starting at $219, helps guests make the most of the winter season with unlimited skiing followed by ice skating on the ice rink.
