Wintry Mix

NOTE: Operating delays and closings possible today.  The wintry mix of precipitation expected today includes the possibility of freezing rain conditions.  Icing could force the temporary closure of our detachable lifts and as a result, a reduction in open trails.  If closed, lifts and trails would re-open when conditions improve.

OPEN with day sessions only, skiing and riding on a machine groomed surface.  

Hours:  9am-5pm

Rates:  regular midweek rates.

Open Trails:  13 trails open – Potato Patch, Upper Dobie, Lower Dobie, Eagles Swoop, both Cross Trails, Tequila, Lower Sunrise, the upper portion of our Terrain Park, Upper Cliffhanger, Loggers Alley, Hydraulic and Lower Wild Turkey.

Lifts:  4 lifts open – Potato Patch, Blue Ridge Express, Big Acorn and Highlands Express

Surface:  24-36 inch machine groomed base

Terrain Park:  The upper portion of the Terrain Park is open with 12 features – 30ft cigar pipe, 10ft pipe, small flat box, small down box, disco box, A frame box, big tank set up ¼ pipe style, pole jam, A frame pole jam, large flat down, 20ft down, flat donkey.

Tubing:  CLOSED re-opening Tuesday with sessions from 1:30pm until 8:30pm.  Sessions often sell out, you can purchase tickets in advance here:  http://www.wintergreenresort.com/Tubing/

Snowmaking:  Temps bounce around over the next 5 days with some overnight snowmaking opportunities.  Weather conditions are expected to change dramatically at the end of the week as cold air returns and brings with it the opportunity to make a lot of snow.  With Highlands open, our focus shifts a little bit.  Finishing up Tyro, Lower Diamond, and the lower section of our Terrain Park become the next priority.  At the same time, we will use a portion of our snowmaking capacity to beef up open terrain and begin work on Upper Turkey and Devils Elbow.
