Snowmaking Comes Back Tuesday Night

We had an excellent weekend of skiing, riding, and tubing, and we're not ready to let the fun stop just because it's Monday. Every day is a snow day at Wintergreen... even Mondays! We're open 9 am-5 pm today, and we're back to 9 am-9 pm skiing and riding hours tomorrow.

We'll have mild temps today and tomorrow, which means you can wear less layers while you enjoy our deep base of snow. We haven't lost any of our trails during this short warm up, and snowmaking will be back Tuesday night. In the meantime, we still have plenty of snow to slide on.

Learn To Ski & Ride Month

January is Learn to Ski & Ride month, and these mild temps make for great learning conditions. Take advantage of this chance to get on the snow! When you stay on our Winter Escape Package (which included lodging AND lift tickets) you can get a discount on our Discover Skiing & Riding Lesson Program. Our instructors are amazing and LOVE to share their knowledge. If you thought that learning to ski or snowboard was something you could never accomplish, think again!

Devils Elbow and Outer Limits Are Open!

It's a bluebird weekend with lots of snow, lots of trails, and comfortable temps! We're open 9 am-9 pm with tons of skiing, riding and tubing.

The big news is that Devils Elbow and Outer Limits open today. The only trail left to open now is Upper Diamond, and even that's coming really soon. And if you missed the news last week - Big Acorn and Upper Turkey are open too. Big Acorn is always a big favorite, and if you missed it last year, now is your chance!

Devils Elbow and Outer Limits Open Tomorrow

It's the start of a perfect weekend for skiing, riding, and tubing! Big Acorn and Upper Turkey opened yesterday; Devils Elbow and Outer Limits will open tomorrow.

Math For Skiers and Riders

There's a big chance that we'll reach 100% open trails this weekend. How did we get here? In a word, SNOWPOWER! But there's more to it than that. Let's do the math.

4"=400 million gallons -- About four inches of rain fell across the mountain before MLK Weekend, which equals approximately 400 million gallons of water to feed SNOWPOWER. Here's what we did with it:

What's left to finish the equation? Just Upper Diamond and then all our trails are open! There's a good chance we'll get to 100% open this weekend, so do your snow dances, thank a snowmaker, and get your skis and boards and come enjoy it! Conditions are excellent - it's a great time to be on the mountain!

Big Acorn and Upper Turkey Open Today!

It's a BLUEBIRD DAY! Mother Nature brought us over four inches of fresh powder yesterday, and today, two of our favorite slopes open: Big Acorn and Upper Turkey!

SNOWPOWER has been pumping out tons of snow - our base is up to 40". Conditions were already excellent before the natural snow - so now they're even excellent-er! That may not be a word, but you know what we mean: the snow is great, some of your favorite runs open today, it's time to be here and enjoy it!

Devils Elbow and The Gap will be next to get finishing touches from SNOWPOWER - they'll open soon.

Phenomenal Conditions; New Terrain Coming

Conditions are phenomenal. Fresh snow, blue skies, and we're open 9 am-9 pm!

It looks like some natural snow is in the forecast for Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Accumulation might be 1-3". Come up now for a chance at natural snow.

SNOWPOWER

We are rapidly working on new terrain - making snow on Big Acorn, Upper Turkey, Outer Limits, Devils Elbow, and The Gap. Look for new terrain to be opening throughout the week and into the weekend. Go SNOWPOWER!

The Sun'll Come Out Tomorrow!

Hold tight - the rain is nearly over. The sun may peek out as early as 8 am. SNOWPOWER resumes tomorrow as soon as temps allow, which may be in the afternoon or even earlier. Anticipate round the clock snowmaking.

We were prepared for this little warm up and bit of wet weather. The slopes are holding up well - we haven't lost any. We've got plenty of snow for you to come up and enjoy for the holiday weekend! See all MLK Weekend Activities.

One of the many things to be happy about is that the rain has recharged our snowmaking system and given us lots of ammunition to blanket the slopes.

Big Acorn - look out! SNOWPOWER is coming for you soon!

Holiday Weekend!

Join us for the first holiday weekend of 2018! Martin Luther King Weekend is here and conditions are great - celebrate with extra time on the slopes. We've also got lots of other fun activities, including a Tap Takeover at Checkerberry Cabin on Sunday with Stable Craft Brewing. See all activities.

The bit of rain we had this week is on the way out, and cold is forecast to return Saturday morning to make way for a great weekend of skiing, riding, and tubing. We built up a deep snow base in anticipation of Mother Nature's curve balls - our slopes can withstand this weather just fine. We expect snowmaking to resume early Saturday evening to freshen everything up, and we'll start working on new terrain soon.

PHENOMENAL Conditions

We’re coming off a great weekend where everyone we talked to told us how phenomenal the conditions are right now. It’s a great feeling to have our mountain full of happy skiers and amazing snow.

This week, you can expect more of the same great conditions with temps that are a bit warmer. Goodbye arctic blast! Even if we get a little rain, that’s not a bad thing. A little bit of rain won’t hurt our open terrain (our base is deep), but some rain will recharge our system and spur on more snowmaking to refresh the surfaces and open more terrain.

MLK Weekend Coming Up

Looking ahead to MLK Weekend, conditions will still be fantastic. The forecast is for more normal winter temps for Virginia, so temps will be more comfortable without as many layers! Snowmaking will likely return Saturday night to freshen the surfaces and power us through the holiday weekend. We’ve got tons of fun activities over the week including:

Lower Cliffhanger Opens Today

It's all good news today! Open from 9 am-9 pm for lots of great skiing, riding, and tubing. Conditions are fantastic with a deep base of crisp snow. Plus, another trail in The Highlands opens - come enjoy Lower Cliffhanger today! 

Weekend Forecast

We've got sunny skies and ideal skiing conditions for the weekend. Temps are on the cold side, but it's also very dry, so it doesn't feel as cold as it might if there was more humidity in the air. We suggest dressing in layers and taking breaks to warm up throughout the day.

The main Terrain Park on Upper Diamond Hill will open tomorrow. So in addition to Lower Cliffhanger, we'll have lots of new features in the Terrain Park to enjoy.

Snowmaking resumes tonight, and there's a chance for some natural snow on Monday.

Winter is off to a fantastic start at Wintergreen - come play!

In the meantime, come enjoy these amazing conditions! Dress warmly with extra layers and bring your sunscreen. Have you stopped in Checkerberry Cabin this season? It's great place to warm up by the fire and try their new tacos.

For this weekend, we anticipate opening Upper Diamond Hill with the Terrain Park, and Lower Cliffhanger.

Spend time with family, friends, and the great outdoors, plus work off some of those holiday treats (or make room for more).

SNOWPOWER Progress

Christmas brought many gifts, including the return of SNOWPOWER. Slope surfaces are refreshed and making for great runs. We are currently making a lot of snow on The Highlands - Upper Cliffhanger, Lower Wild Turkey, and Hydraulic. Did we mention The Highlands will open Thursday?! The 10-day forecast shows nothing but freezing temps - so the future is looking really bright!

New Year's Eve with FIREWORKS!

Speaking of bright, if you've never seen FIREWORKS over the slopes, you should come up for New Year's Eve. The sight of our beautiful snowy mountain lit up by sparkling fireworks is an unforgettable sight.

The fireworks start at 10 pm, but we've got Skiing, Snowboarding, and Tubing, different parties to fit everybody's style, Live Music, and FIREWORKS!

SNOWPOWER Returns for Christmas!

Temps are dropping and Santa is coming. We're all getting an amazing Christmas present this year - SNOWPOWER returns tonight to refresh the surfaces and work on The Highlands and Lower Diamond!  

Santa on The Slopes

When we said temps are dropping and Santa is coming, we meant that literally. Before Santa embarks on his yearly trip around the globe, he'll make a special stop on our slopes. Today, December 24, from 12-2 pm, Jolly Old St Nick will be cruising around the slopes with Christmas cheer and candy! 

Snow Forecast

With snowmaking returning tonight, we'll be working hard to open The Highlands as soon as possible. There's even the possibility for some natural snow tonight. We don't expect much accumulation, but even flurries are a great way to celebrate Christmas. Looking farther ahead in the forecast, there's the possibility for up to 5" of snow on Friday. That means we could have POWDER next weekend!

Merry Christmas, everyone! Wishing you all the joy, hope and MAGIC of the season! Check out this timelapse video from the first few days of snowmaking this season.

Thanks to everyone who came out last weekend to kick off the season! We opened with 7 trails and by the second day we were already at 10 trails.  Those trails are holding strong with a deep base while we recharge the system and wait for temps to drop again.

Forecast shows a chance for a bit of snowmaking tonight. But either way, it looks like we made it to Santa's nice list this year and we'll have a great present on Christmas - the return of SNOWPOWER! We've already made some snow on The Highlands, and we'll be going back to start finishing trails and opening new terrain as soon as possible. Stay tuned to The Blog for updates.

Awesome Opening Weekend!

Thanks to everyone who came out this weekend, it was a phenomenal opening weekend with lots of smiling faces! We opened with 7 trails and by the second day we were already at 10 trails. Conditions were cold and dry, resulting in a surface that was a joy to ski, ride and tube on. We’re open daily for more snow fun – come and get it!

We’ll see temps that are a bit warmer this week, but our deep base of 20”-30” won’t go away fast. Even if you don’t have snow in your backyard, don’t worry – we do! We’ve built up a lot of snow, so this week you’ll be able to enjoy it with temps that are above freezing. Shed a layer and enjoy great early season conditions.

Tubing will be closed today and tomorrow (Monday-Tuesday) to rebuild for the holiday. Tubing will open for more tubular fun on Wednesday. If you’re planning to tube, please buy tickets in advance as it is very likely that we will sell out. Tickets are available for purchase starting on Sundays for the following week.

SNOWPOWER

We have some chances for snowmaking during the next week, and rest assured, we will be ready to go at every opportunity. Colder weather will be back before you know it and we’ll get back to pumping out the white stuff.

SNOWPOWER Returns

Last night we fired up SNOWPOWER at 6:43 pm and have been pumping snow onto the slopes ever since! We’re lucky to have a great snowmaking forecast for the foreseeable future: freezing or near-freezing temps both day and night. Rest assured, we will be making snow at every possible opportunity! Our snowmakers are the best. Lots of people think of SNOWPOWER as just the snowmaking system, but it’s also the people. Snowmakers, mechanics, everyone who helps us get ready for the busy winter season, all of our friends, family and fans who come enjoy the snow – they’re all a big part of SNOWPOWER. Go SNOWPOWER, Go!

Opening Day

The big announcement is: projected opening day is December 15!

We are focusing on laying down a quality base on our core slopes and making sure that we have a strong opening with great conditions. How many slopes does that mean? We’re not sure yet, but we’ll keep you up to date on this blog and on social media. Do you follow us on Facebook? We posted several live videos last night of the beginning of snowmaking. Look for more awesome updates like that in the future!

What about Tubing and The Highlands?

This year we asked Santa to bring lots of great skiing, riding, and tubing for Christmas, and we think we made his “Nice” list!

After we open with core slopes, we hope to open tubing the weekend before Christmas, and we hope to open The Highlands during the Christmas holiday period.

So wax up your skis and boards and get ready to slide – the time is coming soon!

BRING. IT. ON!

Hiking Trails for Fall Color!

There are over 30 miles of marked hiking trails at Wintergreen. With that much ground to cover, which are the best for viewing fall color? Once again, we went to our nature guru, Josh Palumbo from The Nature Foundation at Wintergreen. Here is his advice and top picks!

Wintergreen is a wonderful venue to optimize your fall color viewing pleasure. When seeking the right trail for great fall color the key is location, location, location. You want trails that have a great diversity of tree species, especially those with vibrant fall foliage. The ideal trail is heavy with maples, black gum, sassafras and hickory. Luckily, Wintergreen has many miles of trails with just those requirements.

Hemlock Springs Trail: This trail, following beside cool, crisp Hemlock Springs, is laden with sugar maple groves which offer some of the best orange and red color fall can offer. As you proceed down this moderate trail, you will see the wonderful reds from the black gum along with the yellow added in from the hickories and yellow poplars.

Upper Shamokin Gorge Trail: This more difficult trail parallels beautiful Stoney Creek which creates a much cooler microclimate perfect for growing a high volume of sugar maple. This trail is also loaded with birch and red maple which provide a good contrast in colors. This trail is a must see for the adventurous color seeker.

Old Appalachian Trail (Cedar Dr – Laurel Springs Dr.): This picturesque portion of trail traverses Wintergreen’s western ridge, which creates a great backdrop for fall colors. Trails with western aspect are usually richer, moister sites. At Wintergreen that means a richer canopy selection. This trail is covered in maple, birch and hickory which make for a lovely color palate. This western ridge is also home to many rock outcrops which offer expansive views of the Shenandoah Valley and therefore a great place to watch color change at landscape level.

Fall Foliage Forecast From The Nature Foundation

Fall foliage is hard to predict, so we've gone to our nature guru for some inside information. Josh Palumbo from The Nature Foundation at Wintergreen has given us the scoop.

Fall Foliage Forecast

This growing season has been a Jekyll and Hyde scenario. Spring was wonderful at Wintergreen; from April-June, the resort received tremendous amounts of precipitation and very moderate temperatures. From July-September we suffered moderate drought conditions. Drought causes stress to trees, and many trees react by ceasing chlorophyll production very early and just dropping their leaves. But, dry weather can also effect fall color positively. Ideal fall color comes from cool nights and calm, sunny days. We have had plenty of those conditions throughout September.

The primary question is what will these opposing factors mean for our fall foliage forecast at Wintergreen?

I believe we are set up for a muted but elongated period of prime colors. Many of the most colorful trees have started dropping their leaves already. On the other hand, a vast majority of trees have been showing a slow change into their fall color “attire." I am guessing we will have a large peak window around October 18-25. That also depends on your definition of peak. Do you prefer the early change when some leaves are colored and others are still green, or do you prefer when most leaves have changed but more leaves may be down? Elevation changes in the area further complicate the topic - later in the season you'll still be able to view vibrant color at lower elevations and in the valley. Whenever you visit, just make sure you get out and enjoy it!

Fall is Calling You!

Do you hear it? The rustle of brightly colored leaves you hear is fall calling you to come to the mountains! There is no better place than Wintergreen Resort and the surrounding area to see the Blue Ridge's annual majestic show of fiery fall color.

Our Favorite Ways to See Fall:

From The Air

For a Saturday thrill, take in the mountain's color from The Zip as you soar 900 feet at speeds approaching 40 mph.
For a more relaxing experience, try a chairlift ride. Come see us October 7-8 during Columbus Day Weekend for a high-flying leaf-peeping experience you won't forget! 

From The Green

Devils Knob Golf Course - Virginia's highest golf course covers some spectacular terrain with unsurpassed views.  Guests famously say, "the only thing better than playing Devils Knob in August is playing Devils Knob in October." 

From The Trees

Hiking - With over 30 miles of marked trails for you to explore, the possibilities for spectacular fall views is limitless. Stop by The Nature Foundation at Wintergreen for their recommended hikes.

From a Big Comfy Chair, Wearing a Big Soft Robe

Pumpkin Chai Pampering, Autumn Harvest Facial and Wrap, or a Harvest Manicure while you take in fall color?  The Spa is offering fall-inspired treatments to ensure your leaf-peeping experience is as relaxing as possible. 

From The Overlooks

Wintergreen is a great jumping off point for a scenic fall drive. Breathtaking fall foliage views abound on the  Blue Ridge Parkway and beyond!

Our Favorite Scenic Fall Drive

Be dazzled by autumn this year and explore the foliage from the top of the mountain to the valley below. Wintergreen is a great jumping off point for scenic fall drives. Be sure to check the Foliage Report to get an idea how fall color is progressing in the Weekly Fall Foliage Report from the Department of Forestry.

Here is this year’s favorite ride: 

Blue Ridge Parkway - Nelson 151 Loop

  1. To The Blue Ridge Parkway
    Leaving Wintergreen, at the gatehouse, turn right for the Blue Ridge Parkway. Turn right and go north for 13 miles. Along the way, stop off at Raven’s Roost Overlook with a stunning view of the Shenandoah Valley.
    • Insider Tip: The end of September/early October is prime time for seeing hawks and songbirds migrate south.
  2. Continue to Humpback Rock for a Hike
    It's a two mile round trip hike to the top of Humpback Rock - the 360 degree view is worth the uphill climb.
    •   Insider tip: this is one of the most popular hikes in the area, so if you like to hike without a crowd, you may want to consider a midweek trip. And for the early riser, a sunrise hike is a stunning way to start your day.
  3. Continue to Route 250
    Take Route 250 East toward Charlottesville. As you drive down Rt. 250, turn right on Route 6 and you’ll find Veritas Vineyards and Winery and Afton Mountain Vineyard.
  4. On to Route 151 with Tastings Aplenty
    Continue down Route 6 to Route 151 where you’ll have a choice. Turn left and just up the road is Blue Mountain Brewery - the brews are top notch as is the pizza (the Real Deal is our favorite). If you turn right on Route 151 you can wind your way through the Rockfish valley and tour Cardinal Point, Fly Fox and Hill Top Berry Farm & Winery.
  5. Hit The Trail
    Need to stretch those legs? Stop off at the Rockfish Valley Loop Trail. Part of the Virginia Birding and Wildlife Trail, this path offers recreation and interaction with nature and history. 
  6. Be Bold
    After your hike, just down the road you’ll find Bold Rock Cidery. Enjoy an afternoon on the deck overlooking the farmland while tasting the light and refreshing hard ciders.
  7. Head Back?
    You’re almost home! Turn right on Route 664 and if your car needs a rest before heading up the mountain check out Devils Backbone or the Blue Toad, or save them for another day.

Please enjoy this tour responsibly!
