New Snow On The Way!!

4-8 inches of new snow on the way = incredible skiing and riding conditions through the weekend.  March is often the BEST time to ski and ride, make plans to visit this weekend!

As of 7am – rain is changing over to freezing rain on the way to all snow for the remainder of the day.  Opening delays could occur as we transition through a freezing rain period.  Please use caution as you arrive at the resort.

Hours:  Open with day and night sessions, 9am-9pm.    

Rates:  Midweek rates

Open Trails:  24 trails open – Outer Limits un-groomed. 

Lifts:  4 lifts open – Potato Patch, Blue Ridge Express, Big Acorn and Highlands Express.  NOTE – Icy conditions could cause opening delays on our detachable lifts.  Once we change over to snow, these lifts should operate normally.

Surface:  30-60+ inch machine groomed and un-groomed base.

Terrain Park:  The Progression Park is open with: 2 small flat boxes, flat down box, a frame box, propane tank, up disco box, small jump, medium jump and medium hip. The Advanced Park is closed for rebuilding and should re-open Friday. 

Tubing:  Open with sessions from 1:30p until 8:30pm.  Sessions often sellout, you can purchase tickets in advance here:  http://www.wintergreenresort.com/Tubing/

Ridgelys Fun Park:  Open Saturday and Sunday with sessions from 11am-4pm.   NOTE: RFP closes for the season after Sunday March 8th.

Snowmaking:  Cold temps and consistent natural snow are providing increasing base depths and great surface conditions.  With a ton of snow, we plan to ski and ride into late March.
