Though skiing and snowboarding will go on for another week and one more weekend in April, the end is near for the 2013-2014 winter season at Wintergreen Resort. A favorite way to pay homage to the outgoing season is the annual Pond Skimming event at the resort. It’s part of the weekend Splash & Dash Celebration.
