Fighting The Good Fight!

We’re open 9 am-5 pm today, temps are dropping, and there’s still fun skiing and riding to be found at Wintergreen!

Taking on Mother Nature is no easy feat, but we’re doing our best to make and preserve as much snow as possible! Yesterday’s storm did not bring as much rain as expected (around ½ inch), and temps dropped early, allowing us to turn on a few fan guns for a few hours.

We expect to be able to get some limited snowmaking done tonight through Saturday or early Sunday morning. There’s even a slight chance of natural snow on Friday night. Weekend temps will be more seasonable than we have seen lately – it will feel like winter! We’re expecting bluebird skies and lots of fun. It’ll be WAS Mardi Gras and Be Bold Weekend with Bold Rock Hard Cider. The Highlands will be open this weekend, but keep an eye on the Mountain Cams and the Slope Report for updates.
