Nelson County, Virginia

As predicted, light snow fell over Nelson this past weekend leaving a slight, but beautiful blanket across most portions of the county. In the mountains of Nelson, just breathtaking! NCL Mountain Photographer, Paul Purpura was out early Sunday and grabbed some of the scene of the season to come up in the mountains near Wintergreen Resort where ski season is set to begin in just under a week!

With a little help from the snowguns at Wintergreen Resort, the Potato Patch lift sits ready for the opening day of ski season just a few days away.
