‘Tis the Season for Snowmaking
The snow guns are working overtime and the skiing is going to be great this weekend. Wintegreen’s Mountain top temperature this morning was 20 degrees at 7am and it hasn’t gotten out of the twenties all day! There’s a lot of Mountain to cover so Wintergreen snowmaking activities will be going on throughout the Mountain in the next few days including on Eagles Swoop, Sunrise, Tequila, Upper Tyro, the Fun Park, Dobie and Potato Patch.
The Wintergreen skiing and snowmaking guru tells us that tonight they will begin grooming Eagles Swoop and there will be 5 trails and 2 lifts running on Saturday. With grooming taking place overnight on Eagles Swoop, Wintergreen’s snowmaking efforts will shift to new terrain – The Highlands and the Terrain Park! The goal for next weekend for skiing and riding at Wintergreen: Open Upper Cliffhanger, Lower Wild Turkey, Hydraulic, Tequila, Sunrise, Upper Tyro, Potato Patch and some portion of the Terrain Park. Check back for updates as the week progresses. The 10-day Wintergreen weather forecast is favorable, but we all know how fickle Mother Nature can be!
