Winter is fun in Flat Top

Once you’re there, you’re going to want to explore the Flat Top skiing options. Get out into nature, embrace the cold, and ski like you’ve never skied before. Don’t worry—if you actually haven’t skied before, you can learn how at the Winterplace ski resort, get snowboarding lessons, or go tubing if you aren’t ready to tackle the slopes on 2 feet. Afterward, you can take your pick of the resort’s many après-ski attractions like karaoke, watching videos at the lounge, or heading just a few miles out of town to try some of the local cafes. The lodge is also open year-round and provides space for weddings, parties, and conferences.

Flat Top offers exciting family time

You and the kids will be happy to learn there are many different seasonal activities near Flat Top vacation rentals. Though a Flat Top ski resort could provide you with exciting recreations for a whole day or more, a guided tour of the Mystery Hole, a gravity experience you have to feel to believe that’s located about 50 miles outside of town, will give you and your loved ones something to puzzle over. The Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine offers educational fun through its museum tours that actually take you underground with an experienced guide and coal miner.

See the snowy weather in Flat Top

The best times to travel to Flat Top for skiing are between November and March. This is when you can expect ski-worthy snow and the kind of winter wonderland you’ve been dreaming of. However, Flat Top weather is also pleasant year-round, with highs in the summer averaging in the 70s. The resort has spring, summer, and fall activities like intermediate and advanced hiking trails, as well many venues and lounges that offer incredible views of the mountains. There’s always plenty to do just outside town if you happen to travel to your Flat Top vacation rental when the slopes aren’t an option.

Enjoy Flat Top’s mountain views and natural landscapes

The community gets its name from the Great Flat Top Mountain, the level highland where the town is located. Flat Top’s elevation is over 3,000 feet, and the crest of the mountain continues for almost 30 miles, starting at the New River Gorge. Flat Top vacation rentals offer both exciting and peaceful activities that coincide perfectly with the majestic backdrop of the Appalachian Mountains in this quaint slice of America.
