Some pics from Sunday at W'green. The sun came out at lunch time.

Dobie mid-morning was not crowded








Checking out Eagles Swoop, the only run open until 2:00 off Big Acorn






Tyro needs more cold weather


No line on Big Acorn at 1pm


No more 'til next time.

Would you believe Tyro was totally brown on Friday morning? They started up the guns for a short while (3-4 hours) while I was there, and I have a feeling they did not run again before you saw it. Hope that will be open soon -- it's a fun trail.

Web site update for the day says Tyro will open Tuesday...that may be optimistic. I like Tyro a lot as well.

I am thinking about playing hooky from work and going up on Thursday. Hopefully be open for sure by then.

I might shoot for Thursday too -- depends on how much snow drops further west at the WV resorts.

skier219,
I thought you had a venture out west coming up soon?
By the way, conditions at Alta are awful...tons on snow this week, only a 90" base!!

Next week! Right now, it looks like the weather will flip-flop east to west when I am out there, in fact it will be colder at Wintergreen than at Alta most days. How's that for timing? Unless I see some snow in the forecast out there, I will leave my fat skis at home and bring something narrower.

It's the only way I will ski Wintergreen, except maybe in early or late season when the weekends are still not too bad. I lose interest in the place quickly when the slopes are crowded and there are lift lines. But on weekdays, it's almost like a private ski club. Probably not more than 50-100 people on the entire mountain for most of the day. Toss in a $200 season pass, which I normally get 10-15 ski days out of, and it's pretty compelling.

Let me know if you decide to head to WTG Thursday. Be nice to meet up for a run or two. Agree with you on weekends though. Pretty crowded sometimes.
