Mountain State Amazes with Winter Wonderland

The Challenge

West Virginia’s nickname may be the “Mountain State,” but it’s hardly the first destination that comes to mind when you think of a winter getaway. BVK was challenged with raising awareness of West Virginia’s incredible winter season.

  • The Solution

    BVK concepted a press trip covering little-known winter towns and invited three freelance travel writers and four top-tier influencers to come along. Guests explored an abundance of unexpected winter activities, from cozy cabins in prestigious state parks to the renowned Greenbrier Resort. Custom itineraries highlighted a mix of ways to experience outdoor adventure and indoor relaxation: the perfect winter getaway.
