Fiery Fridays – A Great Way to Start Your Weekend

Wintergreen Music has a new name and look but they are still bringing the mountain to life with all kinds of music, and you’re sure to find the music you love. Fiery Fridays will start your weekend off on a lighter note with the rhythms and harmonies of bluegrass, Motown and salsa. It’s the perfect way to wind down and relax after a busy week. Join us in the Dunlop Pavilion from 7:30-9 pm. Tickets: $35

July 19: Love Canon

Wintergreen Music is revamping the annual celebration of all things bluegrass. We begin on Friday evening with an exciting show by Charlottesville’s Love Canon – a band that combines the great hits of the 80s and 90s with a mountain music sensibility. Come early for our tasty dining options. Present your Love Canon concert ticket at The Edge and receive a 10% discount on a pre-concert dinner.. Or check out the Prime Rib special at The Copper Mine Bistro (sorry, no discount). Reserve early, it's a sell out - 434-325-8090. Then, stick around for Saturday morning when we pepper the Resort with traditional Appalachian music, fun for the entire family.

July 26: Motown Madness with Masters of Soul

 “I heard it through the Grapevine” that Masters of Soul is returning for this Wintergreen tradition. With the band’s silky tones and kickin’ instrumentals, we’ll be “Dancing in the Streets”, or rather on the Mountain.

August 2: Salsa Night with Bio Ritmo

Join us for an energetic evening of Latin groove, performed by Richmond’s popular salsa band Bio Ritmo. These musicians will have your toes tapping with that famous sound of bongos, congas, and yes, more cowbell.

What A Difference 3000 Feet Make!

Temperatures in the Mid-Atlantic will be HOT over the next ten days with highs in triple digits. But not at Wintergreen - it's the magic of a 3000 foot elevation difference. You can escape the sweltering summer heat and come to the mountains where temps are 12-15 degrees cooler - a delightful way to spend a sunny day. Plus we have 10,000 acres of shade! See you on the mountain.

By The Light of the Silvery Moon

For centuries mankind has been fascinated by the moon. We know the moon effect tides, animal and plant life, and human mental state (think lunatic) and bio-rhythms. We even see a human face outlined in the craters and topography of the moon. 

Fifty years ago, on July 16, 1969 Apollo 11 launched into outer space on a quest to put man on the moon and better understand this powerful influence in our daily lives. The successful mission included Neil Armstrong’s and Buzz Aldrin’s historic moon walk, spending 21.5 hours on the lunar surface, collecting 47.5 pounds of lunar material and more than eight days in space.  This weekend we pay tribute to these American heroes for their bravery in exploring the new space frontier. 

Let’s celebrate the moon! From the Charlottesville Astronomy Club’s viewing the moon through their hi-powered telescopes, to photo ops of kids in space suits, to MoonPies and kids lunar crafts, we pay tribute to this magical moon. Click here for details of the weekend activities.

Tons of Summer Fun

Summer is here and we have tons of fun planned. Check it out!

Discovery Ridge Adventure Center

This summer be sure to stop by the Discovery Ridge Adventure Center. It’s getting a complete facelift with lots of new attractions that your family will love.

  • Gem Mining   Kids of all ages will thrill to discover what pioneer prospectors discovered while mining for gold. We have a sluice set up, so get your hands wet and pan for fossils and gemstones and discover the fun of prospecting.
  • Ninja Warrior Obstacle Course! Channel your inner ninja and test your speed, strength and agility on our new 8 obstacle course.
  • Bouldering Wall  Bouldering is a form of rock climbing performed on rock walls without the use of ropes or harnesses. The goal is to traverse across the wall horizontally, not to scale a tower.
  • E-Mountain Bikes  Stay tuned for when our E-bikes will be ready for guided tours. We plan to have a mountain tour for the more experienced riders and a valley tour for beginners.
  • Mini Golf  We’re adding a ski theme to our miniature golf course. Come check it out. The first 9 holes will be complete for July 4th.
  • The Plunge Summer tubing is getting a new track. It’s 650 feet of thrills and chills in our summertime setting.
  • Archery  Archery will be back online soon and in a new location. Stay tuned for details.

Most of our improvements will be ready for the July 4th celebration. Hope to see you all at Discovery Ridge!

Lake Monocan

We hope all of you have stopped by the Lake to see what judicial pruning and trimming can accomplish. Views have been expanded, the snack shop updated, and our fleet of kayaks has grown adding five new kayaks, two fishing kayaks and a tandem kayak. We also expanded the swimming area a bit for additional room to splash, play games and swim. It’s just not summer without lots of water-time.

Upcoming Events

  • July 4-7 July 4th Jubilee - With fabulous music, axe throwing, block parties, great food and thirst quenching sips and, of course, THE BEST FIREWORKS! Help us celebrate the red, white and blue.
  • July 12-14 By the Light of the Silvery Moon - Pay tribute to Apollo 11’s moon landing just 50 years ago! We plan to celebrate all things moon this weekend.
  • July 19-10 Blue Ridge Mountain Music Fest featuring Love Canon. Thanks, Wintergreen Music!
  • July 29 All About Brew Golf Tournament – benefitting Adipsy. Join the fun!
  • August 2 Salsa! Learn some new dance steps before Bio Ritmo get you dancing in the aisles. Again, thank you Wintergreen Music!
  • Splash Parties  -Throughout the summer join us for luau parties at Lake Monocan and splash parties up at The Wintergarden Pool. Very cool.
  • Movies Under the Stars - Enjoy big screen stars on our big screen. July 6: Star Wars – A New Hope; July 20 Star Wars- The Empire Strikes Back; August 3: The Wizard of Oz; August 17: The Greatest Showman, and August 31: The Sound of Music. Check This Week at Wintergreen for times and locations.
  • August 31-September 2 Summer’s End Festival and Cabin Jam. Farewell to summer!
  • September 5-29 The Sound of Music Don’t miss it! When have you ever arrived at a Broadway musical via a chairlift ride. It’s going to be a unique experience.

See you on the Mountain – and in the Valley!

Wintergreen Joins the NSAA Climate Challenge

All five PGRI resorts have signed on for the industry effort to promote sustainable slopes

When the National Ski Areas Association put out the call for member resorts to join in the NSAA Climate Challenge this year, Wintergreen Resort answered with a resounding, “Yes,” along with the other four ski areas in the Pacific Group Resorts, Inc. portfolio.  NSAA’s Climate Challenge initiative has been around for several years, and more regional destination resorts are starting to be in a position to join industry stalwarts such as Jackson Hole, Deer Valley, and Stratton in the efforts to reduce energy usage and thus carbon emissions.  Geraldine Link, Director of Public Policy at NSAA, exclaimed in her emailed response about Wintergreen and the other PGRI resorts’ involvement, “NSAA is excited to see all these ski areas enter the Climate Challenge.  It is awesome!”

Rod Kessler, General Manager of Wintergreen Resort, noted the resort has already named a steering committee of staffers to develop and implement the eco-friendly programs, and he has named a “sustainability champion,” Director of Golf Operations, Fred Biggers, who would be leading the efforts at the resort.  Kessler also indicated the committee had drafted the initial list of actions to be executed over the next several years to reduce waste and energy usage with the objective of eventually getting to a carbon neutral footprint.

Wintergreen’s spokesperson for the environmental initiative, Betsy Dunkerton, explained it is important to approach the NSAA Climate Challenge as a collaborative effort involving guests as well as resort operations.  “We can reduce idling time for our groomers and buses, and we can buy carbon credits and recycle and compost.  We can even ask our suppliers to reduce the amount of cardboard used when they ship items to us, but those efforts won’t get us all the way to our goal.  As part of our sustainability effort, we will be educating our guests in how they can help by respecting the no idling zones in our drop off areas and making sure they participate in the recycling programs and use refillable water bottles instead of single use plastic containers.  Our pitch to them is pretty simple – we’re all in this together, so let’s all pitch in.”

Being that Wintergreen Resort is the centerpiece of an 11,000 acre environmentally friendly community, it has long advocated for the preservation of the natural landscape.  “We operate in a pristine alpine environment,” concluded Kessler, “and we’d like to help keep it that way for generations of our members and resort guests.  Reducing waste and our carbon footprint is something we all believe in, so we are very pleased to be part of NSAA’s Climate Challenge.”

Memorial Day Reflections

We wish you all a safe and happy Memorial Day. Yes, it is a holiday, but one with greater significance than a day off work, a backyard barbecue, or splashing in the pool. We encourage you to take some time to remember those who have given so much to our country. At 3 pm join with our nation in a moment of silence to honor those who have died in service to our county.

"The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.” — Thomas Jefferson

"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty." — John F. Kennedy

"Looking across this field, we see the scale of heroism and sacrifice. All who are buried here understood their duty. All stood to protect America. And all carried with them memories of a family that they hoped to keep safe by their sacrifice." — George W. Bush

"We can never truly repay the debt we owe our fallen heroes. But we can remember them, honor their sacrifice, and affirm in our own lives those enduring ideals of justice, equality, and opportunity for which generations of Americans have given that last full measure of devotion." — Barack Obama

Fishing with the Wintergreen Sporting Club

Spring is here and it’s time to fish! The Wintergreen Sporting Club (WSC) has an active group of fisher-folk who enjoy the sport and sharing their stories of the ones that got away. They host a popular, but very informal get together to talk fishing. They usually meet at Wild Wolf Brewery monthly on the first Monday afternoon of the month at 4 pm. If the weather is nice they’ll meet outside in the beer garden, otherwise you'll find them on the inside porch. Join them and you’ll get an insider peek at what’s happening in the fishing world of Stoney Creek – where the fish are biting, what baits have been successful, etc. Everyone is welcome and WSC membership is not required. There is no cost; the only pre-requisite is to love fishing, or want to learn about the sport, and be willing to share your experience and ask questions.

Questions? Email Chris Corish: ccorish@wellsfargo.com

The Wintergreen Sporting Club is for people who love the outdoors and outdoor sports – archery, boating, shooting, biking and fishing. But there is also a social and service aspect to the group which is expanding. Learn more!

Big news! I finally caught a grass carp!, says Chris Corish. “i had noticed the carp were eating the pellet food the club is feeding on trout pond so i cast a pellet fly on Saturday morning (March 30) to a couple of cruising carp and one actually took it. I guessed the carp was 35-40 lbs. It took me almost 30 minutes to reel in.”

One More Weekend of Skiing and Riding

Good Morning! We had an over the top weekend with beautiful sunny days and lots of fun on the slopes. The season is winding down and the slopes will be closed midweek. But we have one more weekend of winter fun. Make sure you head to the mountain for your last runs of the 2018-19 season.

The slopes maybe quiet this morning but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to do. Have you tried the fastest growing sport in America? Devils Knob Tennis now offers Pickleball, which combines elements of badminton, tennis and ping pong for a fast paced game that is fun and easy for all ages and abilities. Drop in play is available Mondays and Tuesday from 12:30-2 pm. You can reserve a court on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 12:30-2 pm. Indoor tennis is also available for play.

Racquet sports aren’t your thing? Check out golf down at Stoney Creek, hiking on 30 miles of trails, fishing in streams and ponds, swimming at the indoor pool, or bicycle riding. There’s still plenty of outdoor playtime this spring.

Farewell February

Afternoon Update

She Jumps ….

Wild Skills Junior Ski Patrol, a day camp at Wintergreen Resort, was held on Sunday, February 24. Young girls learned mountain safety and first aid while working with the strong women and men of the ski patrol community.

This event was open to intermediate to expert skiers/snowboarders ages 8 - 17 who identify as female. They are split into teams based on their skier ability and then rotate through different stations. Throughout the day, girls are taught a range of outdoor skills utilized by ski patrollers to keep the mountain safe. Girls work alongside female patrollers and volunteers to learn more about the many facets of mountain safety and first aid. Visit SheJumps.org for more information or email Landon Figg at LFigg@shejumps.org.

Today will be partly sunny during the day with temperatures in the low 40s. Precipitation will start after the sun sets - it could be rain or it could be snow. Cross your fingers for SNOW!

The buzz on the mountain is how great conditions are – it’s incredible – and so much fun. Next week will prove Wintergreen Will was right - winter isn’t over.

Apres Ski Music at The Edge. Sharif performs. Later in the evening Shag will liven up the stage.

Break out your leisure suit and get on your dancing shoes for Silent Disco Dancing. Think Saturday Night Fever.

Check out the pickleball court at Devils Knob Tennis - our newest offering for the littlest player to the senior division.

Did someone say hot tubs? It's the best way to relax after a day on the slopes. The pool and fitness center are pretty cool, too.

Dining options abound, from pizza and the best sandwiches from The Market to burgers and brews at The Edge. Check out some of the local brews from our friends on Rt. 151. For a more elegant dining experience The Copper Mine Bistro and Devils Grill offer fine dining in a casual setting. 

Rest up, it's going to be a great Saturday.



Morning Report

We are dealing with a little wet weather today but the precipitation totals aren’t that bad so just make sure you bring an extra layer. We have all 25 trails open and will be skiing until 9pm.

If you need to take a break from the slopes be sure to stop by the spa and fitness center and get in a workout and relax in the hot tub.

Make sure to start your weekend off right by joining us in the Mountain Inn Lobby for the weekend welcome from 4-530pm. This week we will have complimentary oysters and $5 champagne for those 21 and older. Then join us for classic and modern rock solo guitar at The Edge with Sharif from 8-11pm.

The weekend is here and it’s time to make the best of it!

**Please note, the spa and fitness center is open to members and Wintergreen Resort overnight lodging guests only.**

Powder Alert!

Afternoon Update: Snowday Thursday!

What a day on the slopes - the morning snow was amazing and dry and made for the best first tracks. We had 6 – 8 inches of snow from this system and those that came to the mountain had a great day. Tomorrow’s forecast has changed bringing blue skies by the early afternoon – the perfect opportunity for a snowday. We’ll be here, so come ski and ride on some great snow.


Morning Report

We woke up to 5 to 6 inches of fresh powder this morning and it's still falling. Winter storm Petra looks to bring us even more throughout the day. There is nothing better than getting some powder turns in so come on up. This is the perfect opportunity for those of you that are out of school today to take advantage of our Snow Days deal. 

Slope Conditions will be awesome today. For you powder lovers we will be leaving Lower Eagles Swoop, Upper Sunrise, and Upper Cliffhanger ungroomed to enjoy the fresh snow. If there are any delays in opening we will keep everyone in the loop. 

We have our road crews out making sure that the mountain is safe to get around for you snow chasers. Be sure to check the latest road conditions and please drive safe.

We are looking forward to a great day and hope to see you up here!

Let your snowmaking develop overnight. Stir in early morning groomed corduroy. Mix well with friends. Throw in smiles and giggles and top with the promise of a great day on the slopes. Yum.
