Must Do: fabulous February adventures

get more from BRO

Ski the Parkway: This mountaintop highway is closed most of the winter. February is our snowiest month. Make it happen. Lynn Cove Viaduct, Skyline Drive, Balsam Mountain—pick a high elevation stretch of blacktop, and head there when the snow falls.

Climb Ice: This is a life-list adventure most people don’t even realize you can do in the South, but it happens. “Last year, the ice was in,” says Elaina Arenz-Smith, owner of New River Mountain Guides in Fayetteville, W.Va. “It was so cold and wet all winter, the ice was phenomenal. But when it’s in, it’s only good for a couple of days, so you have to pounce.”

Women’s Weekend at Wintergreen: Ladies, Wintergreen Resort hosts the impressive Women’s Head Ski/Ride Clinic (Feb. 18-19), a weekend of workshops taught by certified pros and Alison Gannett, a world champion extreme skier and founder of the Save Our Snow Foundation. It costs $299, but you’ll come out of the weekend with mad shredding skills.
