Winter Fun in March
The Slide & Splash Bash weekend is here and you won’t want to miss the fun and great conditions on the slopes. March has been a surprise with cold temperatures (it was 11 degrees this morning) and natural snow. We don’t want to jinx it, but some reports are calling for 4-8 inches of snow Sunday into Monday. Powder in March! The Resort is closed for skiing Monday-Friday, but will open for the weekend on Saturday, March 30 and hopefully again April 6.
More of your favorite Wintergreen real estate (I’m talking about Wintergreen ski slopes of course) is now available for your personal consumption. In fact you can buy and enjoy this kind of Wintergreen real estate for as little as $209 for a 2008/2009 season pass. What a great deal!
Don’t let the recent rains fool you – skiing and riding at Wintergreen is in full swing. Frigid post-storm temperatures (don’t forget – you can check real-time Wintergreen weather conditions 24/7 at the bottom of all of our Wintergreen website pages) means a ton of fresh snow has been laid down and we’re ready for you to join us for some downhill, Blue Ridge Mountain fun! Four more trails added to the open list today: Potato Patch, Tequila, Upper and Lower Sunrise. Snowmaking continues on Wintergreen’s expert ski terrain, The Highlands, and with just a few more days of cold weather, this section of the mountain will be ready to open – repeat after me, “I want to ski Wintergreen Resort over the Christmas and New Year’s holiday!”

See you on the Mountain!
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!
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.
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!
