Big Acorn!!

4:00pm Snow Report update, looking ahead to Tuesday January 18:

Tuesday looks to be a perfect day for skiing and riding at beautiful Wintergreen Resort. Our forecast calls for sunny skies, light winds and temps rising into the low 30s. On a scale of 1 to 10, Tuesday just might be a 25!  So get out your sunglasses and come carve some turns on 24 trails with the best snow conditions of the season!  Skiya at Wintergreen on Tuesday!   

It is beautiful up on the mountain this morning. We had a great day of skiing yesterday and received about 10 inches of fresh snow. Conditions this morning are the best of the season. With the hard work of our snowmakers and some help from mother nature, we were able to open Big Acorn this morning. This leaves our slope count at 24 of 26. We hope you take advantage of this extra day off work and enjoy some turns on the mountain. See you on the slopes!
