inpajamas Nope, I didn't end up going that weekend. I stayed at home and was super lazy.

I do plan on going this Saturday though. It's been super cold and they've been blowing snow all week. I expect pretty decent conditions and I'd rather ride somewhere than nowhere!

inpajamas @onel0wcubn - thanks for the invite. probably won't make it up there this weekend but if i change my mind i'll let you know.

@TMXMOTORSPORTS - well, if i don't go to wintergreen to ride she'll be coming over here to visit. so i can take care of the second part without having to make a roundtrip drive of 6 hours.

Maybe I should call wintergreen and see if they have any guesses of what'll be open tomorrow.
Fuck it just go to wintergreen board all day then go to your girlfreinds house and bang it out WIN!WIN! Unless the gf is not down.

inpajamas Actually, yea fuck it. I was in Park City 2 weeks ago and 7 Springs last week, I can skip a weekend. Sitting at home, eating pizza and getting get sounds pretty appealing. Thanks for all the advice though guys!

any opinions of wintergreen in general? i've been to snowshoe which is decent, but i'm assuming wintergreen is about half that size.
I was at WG in early January. They were mostly open and blowing the closed trails at that time.
They only have 6 open today for a few reasons 1. They are expecting a light crowd today so they opened the minimum. 2. They will blow the closed trails day and night to recover from the warm days. 3. To prepare for the holiday weekend by blowing as much as they can.
Snowmaking combined with tonight's natural snow will make for great conditions tomorrow and into the weekend.
I think you are underestimating their new capabilities. The new water tank cuts in half the time needed to cover the mountain.
Here's my honest opinion of WG- it's a good intermediate mountain. It's facilitities are somewhat dated. There are a handful of fun blue/ black trails.
WG gives good value for the ticket prices.

WG is about 1/2 the size of Snowshoe. You get what you pay for. If you think Snowhoe was decent, then WG may be somewhat depressing for you. But, it is all we have around here so make the best of it.
