Theme: Embrace Winter. Embrace the Word.

"For as the rain and snow come down from heaven...so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth."

Isaiah 55:10-11

 

The Winter Youth Retreats are an opportunity for adventure, spiritual growth and worship in the mountains of Western North Carolina! While energized worship with great bands is built into every program weekend, groups now have more freedom in choosing their recreational activities. If there's no snow, there's no problem! You can ski, zipline or do a mission project during your time at Lake Junaluska.

LODGING AT LAKE JUNALUSKA

Groups will be assigned lodging based on availability. Primary facilities for youth weekends include the Junaluska Apartments, the Lakeside Lodge, The Terrace, and Mountain View. 

CATALOOCHEE SKI AREA

There are several things you can count on when you bring a group to Cataloochee. Small town hospitality, a helping hand at every stage of your visit, excellent facilities, and of course, great skiing and snowboarding. Lake Junaluska is proud to partner with Cataloochee for our winter ski weekends. Snowboarding is available at no additional cost.

WOLF RIDGE SKI AREA

Nestled in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina and conveniently located just 5 miles off I-26, Wolf Ridge Ski Resort has tremendous offerings for the ski and snowboard enthusiast. Whether you are a beginner or expert, long-time regular or first-time visitor, you are certain to find exactly what you are looking for at North Carolina's premier snow sport facility!

ASHEVILLE ZIPLINE CANOPY TOURS

Take flight on a zipline canopy tour set amongst 150 year-old majestic white and red oaks. With views of some the oldest and largest oak trees in Asheville as well as Asheville's dowmtown, you’ll reach heights of more than 70 feet, and speeds of nearly 30 miles per hour! Our pacakges include helmets, harness and gloves. 

MISSION PROJECT/INDOOR SWIM

We help your youth group live out its faith by coordinating 2 to 4 hours of mission work with a local agency: thrift store, food pantry, community kitchen, nursing home, wood-chopping ministry, painting or yard work. Paired with indoor swimming in a local pool, this option combines service with fun. (Contact us by Oct. 15 for this option.)
