Wintergreen Real Estate: Ultimate Vacation Homes

What is Wintergreen?morning-after-276010_1280

Wintergreen is the ultimate retreat.

Nestled into 11,000 acres of lush forest across the eastern foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Wintergreen Resort offers a scenic and serene escape with plenty of opportunities to get outdoors, including a plethora of amenities for recreational and community activities, and easy access to nearby Charlottesville or Richmond.

So, Why Choose Wintergreen Resort?

Whether you’re looking for a vacation home, a second home, or a primary home, Wintergreen offers plenty of amenities, easy access, and outstanding recreation.

You Can Get Your Nature Fix in All Seasons

The best thing about Wintergreen is that it’s not seasonal.

Winter, spring, summer, and fall, Wintergreen offers residents and visitors alike a chance to get outside and play, move, explore, relax – or whatever else you might want to do.

Spring, summer, and fall offer miles of breathtaking hiking and mountain-biking trails (beautiful and potentially exhausting!), as well as indoor, outdoor, and lake swimming. There are also tennis courts, a mountaintop spa, fly-fishing spots, and two golf courses.

Discovery Ridge offers indoor gaming and outdoor activities such as zip lining, tubing, and archery. the Kids Treehouse offers educational and active programs for children.

Winter is Never-Ending Funsnow-1020626_640

Winter is right around the corner, and outdoor swimming and high-elevation hikes might not be top of your to-do list right now. So let’s talk about winter in Wintergreen. Whether you’re a skier, a boarder, a skater, or a tuber, this is your spot. Even if winter sports aren’t your thing, the resort has alternatives – from dining and feasting to live music, movies, and shows, to crafting and educational activities.

Home to an Award-Winning Ski Resort

The projected opening of the ski slopes is December 12, 2015!

With varied sections of trail ranging from beginner to expert and including lighted trails for night skiing, a terrain park, and a terrain park, it’s easy to see why Wintergreen offers some of Virginia’s best skiing.

Along with miles of downhill trails and plenty of rails, boxes, and tabletops for honing your freestyle skills, Wintergreen Resort offers rentals and lessons for beginners, NASTAR racing for the fast and the furious, and kids ski programs for little ones. In addition, Shamokin Ice offers public skating, and Ridgely’s Fun Park is a great place for kids to discover winter excitement. And don’t forget about The Plunge, Virginia’s largest snow tubing park!

Wintergreen Skiing on Eagles Swoop this weekend

‘Tis the Season for Snowmaking

Wintergreen Resort 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!

  • Wintergreen skiing and winter sports hours for December 6-7:
    Skiing: 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM
    Plunge tubing: 10AM – 6PM

As always, if you’re going to be on the Mountain and want to check out some Wintergreen real estate, Contact Us today.

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.
