We said we would be strong to the end and we are! Closing the season with 15 open trails is remarkable. You still have one more day before we close out the 18.19 season. Sunday is going to be a repeat of Saturday, but just a little bit warmer.

Three Days Left

Afternoon Update

It’s been another unbelievable day on the mountain. Beautiful bluebird skies, lots of smiling faces and we even had a few snow flurries. Tonight temperatures should dip into the 20’s making tomorrow’s snow surface even better. It’s not often we end a season with snow and trail conditions as good as they are. You’ve got to see it to believe it!

Just two more days left of the 18.19 season. Don’t miss it!


Morning Report

It’s a snowday at Wintergreen! The slopes open at 9 am with 14 trails and terrain on all three sides of the mountain – take your pick. Who said it was Spring? We have three days of winter left. The sun is shining, and will continue all weekend. We said we’d end strong and we have. Don’t miss our final flurry of fun.

Stop by the Skyline Pavilion, we have hot chocolate and five star donuts from our friends in Stuarts Draft, Galactic Donut. Join us from  9 ‘til noon Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It’s a sweet way to start your final runs.

Look for bluebird skies, temps in the mid-40’s and smiles on all our faces.

 Be sure to get in your last runs before we bid farewell to the 2018-19 season. It’s been a season to remember and thank you for being part of it!

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.

Top of the Morning to You!

Wasn’t yesterday a grand day? Beautiful weather, and a great time on the snow. Pond skimming was a chilly success for those who took the challenge to cross the pond. Thanks to all who participated.

 Are you wearing your Emerald Isle green?  It’s St. Patrick’s Day! Start your day at The Copper Mine Buffet with an Irish twist. Green pancakes and Lucky Charms! And at The Edge, Chef Cristopher McWhirt has pulled together a tempting selection of Irish pub favorites.

Time is flying by and the 2018-19 winter season is coming to a close. But we planned to end strong and we have enough snow for a bonus weekend March 22-24! The slopes will be closed Monday through Thursday but come back next weekend for your last runs.

Perfect Saturday!

We woke up to a beautiful sunrise and we’re ready to party! Join us in the HUGE terrain park for end of season fun.  The weather will be perfect, highs in the mid-40s and brilliant sun. Roger was out last night pushing and grooming the snow. All his hard work paid off and we have Tequilla and Upper Tyro back for fun on A-side. Thanks, Roger!

Start your day at The Copper Mine Buffet with an Irish twist. Rumor has it there are green pancakes! And in the afternoon go on a scavenger hunt to find the Pop Up Tiki Bar, serving island beverages.

Saturday is looking like it will be a great day on the slopes. Sunny skies, temps in the 40s - nothing could be finer! We still offer 100% of our terrain and a strong base of snow. The groomers will be out overnight sprucing up the slopes for your early arrival.

Apres Ski Music from 3-6 pm is provided by Greg Ward, a man of many talents, seasoned in reggae, roots and rock. Evening entertainment is the Karl Stoll Power Trio – three guys who have known each other most of their lives and get together now and then for the love of playing music – rockabilly, blues and rock & roll. Sandwiched in between is Silent Disco Dancing – great fun for all generations of music lovers and dancers.

Have a great evening!


Morning Report:

True to form, March is coming in like a lion. It’s going to be damp today, but don’t let it dampen your spirits. The sun will shine on Saturday and lots of cold weather is in the forecast for next week. Remember, any day you can ski or snowboard is a great day – enjoy!

Weekend Highlights

We’ll start the weekend with an exciting tasting and demonstration of Bananas Foster. Our chef will cook bananas in a bubbling sauce of brown sugar, butter, and cinnamon. The final flourish is to add rum, light the alcohol and caramelize the bananas. Dramatic and luscious.

Patty Reece will perform in The Edge this evening from 8-11 pm. From traditional back porch stompers to rollicking funk-fueled neon-splashed dancers, Patty lets loose, gracing every track with her vocal power and heart-felt storytelling.

Hungry? It’s prime rib night at The Copper Mine Bistro. Come early (it sells out), come hungry and leave happy. Speaking of happy, keep everyone smiling with Indoor S’mores only at The Edge and only on Friday. Don’t miss it.

On Saturday Wintergreen Adaptive Sports celebrates their awesome volunteers with a Mardi Gras thank you party. They’ll have synchronized skiing and riding, a parade strutting some fabulous costumes and more. Break out your mask and beads and join the celebration.

Stay tuned for more highlights and weekend tips.
