Temperatures at Wintergreen Resort are usually 15-20 degrees colder than the surrounding area, due to the Virginia resort’s location at 4,000 feet above sea level, but the resort still relies heavily on snowmaking. For the 2003-2004 winter season, Wintergreen will have 100% computerized snowmaking.
Wintergreen has expanded its automated snowmaking system to cover 100% of terrain. The snowmaking system continuously adjusts the air to water ratio for better quality snow, based on conditions throughout the mountain.
The resort has also expanded its advanced Upper Wild Turkey terrain, widening the slope to allow for moguls on one side of the trail and a groomed surface on the other side.
Wintergreen will be offering free beginner group skiing and snowboarding lessons with any rental purchase.
