Come to Wintergreen – For your Health!

It’s no secret that stress reduction and vacations benefit your health, but did you know that living near nature is linked to longer lives?  

In a study from Harvard, researchers found that women in the greenest areas had a 12% lower death rate than women living in the least green areas. Living near nature lessens exposure to environmental pollutants,  increases amount of physical and social activity, and lowers stress.

Not everybody realizes that Wintergreen Resort actually encompasses 11,000 acres, and more than 6,000 acres are protected from development. Talk about green areas! We’ve got tons of them, and they’re not going away. We’ve got 30 miles of marked hiking trails in the Blue Ridge Mountains and Rockfish Valley, we’re adjacent to the Appalachian Trail, and there’s plenty of room to explore.

We partner with The Nature Foundation at Wintergreen whose goal is to encourage and enhance understanding, appreciation and conservation of the natural and cultural resources of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. And if you need an immediate excuse to visit and bask in spring’s green splendor, the Nature Foundation is presenting The Spring Wildflower Symposium May 13-15 and welcomes all those who love all aspects of nature as we hike, bird watch, learn about the wildflowers and how to grow them, and explore geology. The slate of expert instructors will help us better understand, appreciate, and protect our natural heritage.

So take care of your health and come to Wintergreen as often as possible! Whether you visit us a few times a year or decide to buy a home or condo for a more permanent fix, your body will thank you.

Top 5 Ways to Enjoy the Green at Wintergreen

  1. Hitting some golf balls
  2. Swinging a racquet
  3. Hiking on our 30 miles of trails
  4. Swimming in the indoor or outdoor pool or at Lake Monocan
  5. Stand up paddleboarding at Lake Monocan
