In preparation for your “wander,” here are a few pieces of information that will assist in your journey.

Where Do I Go?

The Winter Wander is staged behind the main hotel at Boar’s Head Resort. For driving directions, use: 200 Ednam Drive, Charlottesville, VA 22903. Parking for the Winter Wander is free, and one of our smiling staff members will be on location to direct you to a nearby parking space. Once you arrive, you’ll see signs for ticketing and the main entrance which is located directly adjacent to our Mill Room Restaurant.

A Chill in the Air – Dress for the Weather!

It could be chilly and the majority of your Winter Wander experience will be outside. Check the weather for nighttime temperatures before you come and dress appropriately. The half-mile Wander trail is primarily flat with a cinder or grass surface. We recommend wearing a comfortable pair of walking shoes. If you get cold during your wander, no worries! Our Market at the end of your journey will have plenty of warm fire pits to gather around!

Food & Drinks for the Young and Young at Heart

The legendary Mill Room Restaurant is located adjacent to the Winter Wander trail. If you are planning for dinner, reservations are required. View our Mill Room page online for menus and reservation information.

Your Winter Wander experience will also include an array of food and beverage options for kids and adults. A food truck will be in place for most event nights, and you can top off your winter walk at our Frost & Fire Bar in The Market located at the end of your journey. Kids and “the kid in you” will enjoy s’mores around one of our numerous fire pits on the patio of The Market.

It’s Your Time to Shine - Check Your Tickets for Your Start Time

During the ticket purchasing process, you selected a half-hour time slot, and your tickets reflect that timeframe. With Covid-19 still top-of-mind for our guests and staff members, we ask that you start your experience during your 30-minute time slot. These designated time slots are designed to keep crowds to a minimum.

To Mask or Not to Mask

Our current Covid-10 policy will have all of our Boar’s Head team members wearing masks in all indoor areas, and we ask that our guests and members abide by that same recommendation. The great news is that the Winder Wander is predominantly outdoors. During our holiday events in Charlottesville, VA, please abide by the 6-foot distancing guidelines while on the trail and enjoy the wonderful scents, sounds and scenes of our rolling landscape.
