Nelson County, Virginia

The slopes were full of women this weekend at Wintergreen Resort [2]. It was Women’s Weekend [3] at the resort. Our Paul Purpura grabbed lots of shots on the slopes. Paul said it was a bit of a challenge on Sunday because of the wind. “As I stood up to get off the lift, a gust of a guzillion miles an hour (well, may 30 or 40) hit me and pushed me over,” Paul tells us! Got to watch our for those wind gusts on the slopes for sure.

Paul also tells us, “The clinic was co-taught by Tomas Sbertoli (Director of Snow Sports and in uniform) as well as Allison (who is in pink). Tom is a telemark skier, as well as an alpine skier. The other person in uniform is Trish Wade who is a ski coach and an instructor here at the resort. The woman in blue is Marian Spano who is also a ski instructor. Both Marian and Trish have their Level II and Master Teacher Certifications from PSIA (Professional Ski Instructors of America). Tomas is Level III certified, which is the highest cert you can get from PSIA.”
