Nelson County, VA
It may be spring according to the calendar, but winter still holds on for a bit longer. Regardless, Wintergreen Resort held the annual Splash & Dash, also known as Pond Skimming, this past Saturday. It’s sort of a way to say so long to the winter ski season. However, Wintergreen says they may be able to squeeze out another few days of skiing since we’ve been having a lot of late snowfall.
According to information posted on their site as of Sunday March 24, 2013:
Snow, snow everywhere. It is really hard to believe we have this much snow this late in the season. All of this snow combined with 3-6 inches of new snow overnight, you can see why we plan to ski and ride on April 6th.
