ACE Adventures






Winter in West Virginia is mild, and the Mountain State doesn’t disappoint when you spend a few days at one of the leading adventure resorts of America, Ace Adventure Resort. While there are lots of reasons to choose this great place for a vacation when the rapids are calling, winter has hidden gems for why you should get away and book your stay in our quieter months. Here are our top three reasons we pick ACE for one of the best winter adventure locations in the south!

A Winter Adventure

Whether you’re zipping through the treetops on the mountain or you’re enjoying a beautiful hike through the wooded forests. We’ve got everything here that you need to spend your days outside for a fantastic winter adventure. If you’re looking for something a bit more festive, head to Lacy’s Lights and Maples Displays at the Fayette County Park! With its close distance from our resort, this fun nighttime light show is perfect for families. Over 300,000 lights adorn much of the park, and you’re able to enjoy both the walking and driving portions of this fabulous wonderland. You can also enjoy these other festive light displays in the New River Gorge or learn more about other local light displays here at Wild, Wonderful West Virginia.   

Tales at the Lost Paddle

At Ace, we know The Lost Paddle means the social hub for all locals and visitors alike. Featuring live music on Saturdays, our mountain village comes alive. We’ve also begun to include monthly themed events, you’ll not only enjoy thoroughly, but you won’t want to miss. Whether you’re dining to get some much-needed fuel for your day or you’re searching for that ice, cold brew to quench your thirst, our bar and grill, located right here on the resort is perfect for catching up after a day exploring the mountainside.

STEM Trips

This winter we recommend you book a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Trip with one of the best Adventure Resorts of America! When planning an educational trip to ACE, our group outings offer more than just a sleepover at a cool location. Our courses help to incorporate curriculum-standard-based education with a hands-on approach. With the great outdoors as your classroom, there is nothing that your kids won’t enjoy learning!
