Though the days of winter, really, really cold weather, and snow are all on borrowed time, folks up at Wintergreen Resort proved there’s still time to have some fun before spring kicks into full gear in a few weeks. Our Mountain Photographer, Paul Purpura, grabbed these shots of the Sled Race and Chili Contest this week.

Several departments from the resort entered this year’s different competitions including; Lift Operations, Tree House, Mountain Operations, Human Resources, Hospitality, Snow Sports, Equipment Rental, and Parking.
