Resolve to Miss Nothing in 2018 at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort
Resort to Host Series of Fun and Inspiring Events Throughout the Year Ahead

FARMINGTON, PA (January 4, 2018) – Located in western Pennsylvania’s breathtaking Laurel Highlands, Nemacolin Woodlands Resort is challenging guests to a “Resolution Revolution” by kick-starting their new year with an agenda of adventures. Nemacolin encourages travelers – whether they’re spending time with family, significant other, friends or even solo – to resolve to have fun and discover new experiences throughout the year. Those intrepid explorers should look no further than Nemacolin to set the tone for 2018, because this one-of-a-kind resort is revealing a series of new and inspiring events to keep its guests busy and happy in the new year. 

Nemacolin proves that fun is a year-round amenity, offering more than 70 activities for all ages on its 2,000-acre campus. During the winter, there’s no excuse to stay inside, as the resort offers six slopes of downhill skiing and a variety of winter sports including snowtubing, dog sledding, and cross-country skiing. For foodies, January 21-25 marks Nemacolin’s new “Restaurant Week” that showcases the resort’s diverse and critically acclaimed restaurants. Adventure-seekers may prefer WinterFest Weekend, featuring a full day of adventure sports, family fun activities, live entertainment and much more on Saturday, February 3.

Come spring and summer, adrenaline junkies can head to the resort’s Adventure Center to experience various heart-thumping activities, including a 3,000-foot dueling zip line, 50-foot climbing wall, combat paintball, Off-Road Driving, mountain bike rentals, and more. Guests can get their bodies bathing suit-ready at the resort’s Fitness Adventure Retreat April 19-22, or enjoy a weekend of culture at the resort’s first-ever Spring Wine & Art Festival, which is set for April 20-22.

Autumn brings with it the crisp and sunny days that make the outdoor activities at Nemacolin truly delightful. Each October the resort hosts a Brews & Brats Festival that brings the spirit of Germany to the Laurel Highlands with German-themed food, craft beer tastings, keg races and more, while BOOnanza on the Mountain celebrates the spirit of Halloween October 26-27. Come the most wonderful time of the year, visitors are dazzled by the resort’s eye-popping displays of lights that officially kick off during Light-Up Nemacolin on November 23, in addition to several other holiday celebrations ... including a life-size gingerbread house.

And as an added bonus, from now through May 17, 2018, guests can book the resort’s special Playground Rate that includes luxurious overnight accommodations beginning at just $159 per night.
