Wintergreen Skiing Opens Friday!

Hot off the press – Wintergreen skiing and riding starts Friday November 28!  This is a day earlier than advertised – if you’re in the know, you can be in the snow before anyone else.  Snow making conditions have been great for the last two weeks and we are gearing up for a fantastic winter season.  The snowmaking gurus have already turned more than 10 million gallons of water into the fluffy white stuff for all to enjoy.  Beat the weekend crowds with this late breaking news and make first tracks on the first day of the 2008/2009 ski season at Wintergreen Resort.  And don’t forget – for kids and adults alike, tubing will also be open this weekend!

Take a Break from Skiing

Now is the time to snap up your ski-in/ski-out condo for the season.  Selection of Wintergreen real estate has never been better, and prices and opportunities are the best they have been in years.  So, be sure to Contact Us to schedule a break from the slopes with some Wintergreen condo shopping.

See you on the Mountain.


What to Expect from the Wintergreen Real Estate Blog

Welcome to my Wintergreen real estate blog. This portal will provide a smorgasbord of Wintergreen Resort information and information on buying and selling mountain condos and homes.  For my first post, I could think of nothing better to write about than the weather!  Weather is a integral part of the Wintergreen vacation experience, so it really has nothing to do with the fact that I’m a weather junkie and have been watching the Weather channel since it came on the air in mid-1980s!

Wintergreen Mountaintop Weather Conditions

Getting a handle on the weather at Wintergreen is hard to do because all of the national forecasts are centered around zip codes that don’t take into account the difference between the mountain top and the valley.  So, all of your typical weather forecasts are for the valley.  While I don’t have a forecast (you can always call me for my personal prognostication though), on my Wintergreen real estate website, I do have a summary of current Mountain Top conditions that you can review anytime, 24/7.  What you get is current mountain temperature (typically 8-12 degrees cooler than the valley), wind speed, wind gusts, barometric pressure, and relative humidity (if it reads more than 100%, it’s not working properly).  All of this data is picked up from a live, slope-side weather station and is updated every few minutes.

A Portal for All Seasons

So, whether it’s winter and you’re trying to decide on the perfect mountain condo for a ski trip, or summer and you’re trying to escape the heat, visit my Wintergreen real estate homepage for the latest info.  And then click or call me (434) 296-9860 or (877) 296-9860 so we can go look at some Wintergreen homes and condos together!
