It took a bit longer for mother nature to cooperate this ski season, but once she did, it didn’t take long for Wintergreen Resort to get the slopes open. The week between Christmas 2012 and New Year’s 2013 had thousands upon thousands hitting the slopes.
According to Wintergreen’s Mountain Message website dated January 1, 2013:
“Our Snowmaking and Grooming team are putting in long yours and huge effort, Upper Diamond Hill and Loggers Alley trails open today.
We will be open from 9am until 9pm skiing and riding on 16 trails with 5 lifts running. Conditions are fantastic with an average base of 20-30 inches. A little natural snow is on the way with total daytime snow accumulation should be 1-2 inches.
The Plunge is open with seesions from 10am-9pm. Ridgely’s Fun Park is open with sessions from 11am-4pm.”
Which meant almost all of the slopes were up and running on New Year’s day.
