never been there & haven't heard of anyone that has. so report back after your trip!

i did read this on it's website:

"Wintergreen Resort, twice named "Best Ski Resort" by the readers of Washington Post.com, boasts the most thrilling winter playground in the Mid-Atlantic."

that's a pretty big title to claim!

* Skiable acres: 125
* Chair lifts: 5 (2 high-speed six--person, 1 quad, 1 tripple, 1 double)
* Surface lifts: 2
* Uphill capacity: 10,200 skiers per hour
* Terrain mix: 23% beginner, 35% intermediate, 42% advanced/expert
* Snowtubing Parks: 2

Seven Springs makes the same claims it just comes from a different set of readers. I've been to Springs a bunch of times but not Wintergreen so I can't really compare. But I know springs is a blast and I may go up this coming Saturday depending on what there conditions are supposed to be. I think they were open yesterday, or at least the website claimed they were going to be on saturday.

Yea that was yesterday. Today the website says they are closed until saturday and they are supposed to have a few cold days up there through the week so hopefully they might have some thing fun to ride come saturday which is when the website says they are shooting to reopen. But if you are down that is the day I'm looking to try and go up. You to NRG or anyone else that might be down.

Well yea I wouldn't go up if it wasn't worth the gas or time.
