Its going to be 3hrs depending how fast you drive i.e 75 just look out for the troopers, and they got washed out this past weekend with all the rain i do believe they only have 10 slopes up but all of those 10 arnt really long runs just greens. But time on the hill is better than no time on the hill. Still heading up on wed to see how my new stance feels.

I too would guess it would be around 3 hrs from Va Beach. Wintergreen is saying on their site they will be 100% by this weekend. At least we have snowmaking temps now....and may get dumped on Friday or Saturday.

Wintergreen is 2hrs, 50 minutes from VB if you haul ass & watch the piggies on 295 around Richmond & westward on 64. Beyond that Massanothing, Bryce, or homestead are the only other spots in VA. Head 2.5 hrs past Wintergreen to Snowshoe in WV. Snowshoe is like 295 miles from VB and if you haul ass you can make it there in 5.5 hours. Beyond that head upto PA to 7 Springs. I think 7S is like 410 miles or so from vb.
