The clock is ticking on the end of Winter as Spring begins next weekend on March 21st. Yes, there will still be skiing for the next few days, perhaps on into late March, but with average daily temperatures beginning to rise, it won’t be much longer before the snow will be gone and minds turn to warmer weather. Our Mountain Photographer, Paul Purpura, grabbed these shots over the weekend at Freestyle’s Rail Jam. Check their site here for the final results. It unofficially marks the end of snow sports season, though as we just mentioned, skiing, boarding, and tubing will go on as long as weather permits into the final days of March. Check Wintergreen Resort’s site here for the absolute latest updates.

Thanks for the great shots Paul!

    Woody G sure wrote a good review of Harry Harris. Additionally, Harry did an outstanding job on the Blue Ridge Medical Board. Harry was chm of the nominating committee and talked me into coming on board as a member of the board. I observed Harry operating in a most thorough responsible style. The Blue Ridge Medical headed up by Peggy Whitehead was one of fond memories of Nelson County. Good people doing good things for people.
