If you’re looking to sharpen your skills, The Nemacolin Golf Academy offers expert instruction, state-of-the-art game-improvement technology, custom club fitting, and multi-day bootcamps.

Winter Fun on the Slopes

The love of outdoor adventures doesn’t end when the weather cools down. In the winter, the Laurel Highlands are transformed into a glittering wonderland of winter sports and festive celebrations. The Peak at Nemacolin offers 25 acres of skiing and snowboarding on six well-lit slopes, snow tubing, convenient lifts, and spectacular mountain views.

Everyone feels like a kid at Nemacolin — even kids! Experience a dazzling variety of all-ages fun twelve months a year. There’s so much to discover, as soon as you’re done with your family getaway, you’ll want to schedule another. It happens every time.

Everyone in the Pool

At Nemacolin, it’s always the right day for a pool day. Across the resort, you’ll find seven sparkling pools, including year-round heated pools, family-focused and adult-only pools, an exclusive infinity pool at Falling Rock, and more. That doesn’t even include Nemacolin’s hot tubs, which don’t count as pools because you can’t do laps. For the ultimate family adventure, see if you can discover every pool at Nemacolin, just like the explorers of old charting the seven seas.

Fun on the Ropes

Everyone in the family will have fun monkeying around on Nemacolin’s ropes courses, taking you 52 feet high into the air to enjoy a safe, active experience among the treetops. Nemacolin’s ropes courses feature 36 elements on three levels designed on a flexible harness system allowing guests to switch directions, paths, routes, and elements to increase or decrease the level of difficulty or if the activity is already occupied. Adventurous climbers can soar to new heights by “walking the plank” or having a seat at the “floating” picnic table at the top. For the little ones, there will be nine elements on an additional course located below the first level — adventure awaits for all ages!

A Horse of a Different Color

The best way to explore the beautiful Nemacolin landscape is on horseback. Experiences at the Equestrian Center are perfect for the whole family. For your little foals, supervised pony rides are a thrilling and safe way to experience horseback riding for the first time. Once they’re hooked, the whole family can enjoy backwoods trail rides, which will take you through two miles of Nemacolin’s wonderful woods under the care of an expert guide.

Roam if You Want to

If horses aren’t your speed, your family can still explore every inch of Nemacolin’s enchanting grounds. Borrow one of our fleet of bikes (including e-bikes) to pedal at your own pace. An outdoor sculpture tour will take you across the property by car, learning about Nemacolin’s world-class art collection along the way. And for a real rush of adrenaline, try a Jeep off-roading experience. Don’t worry — that one doesn’t go anywhere near the sculptures.
