Wintergreen was a treat! I’m glad I caught it on a great, sunny, 50 degree day just windy enough to keep you from overheating. There is a lot to like about this place. From the super-fast laps you can make on the high-speed six-packs, to trying to imagine what’s at the bottom of the steep and deep hollow you can’t quite see all of as you look at the peak across it from the one you are skiing, it’s all good. If this is a knock, this place has so much lift capacity and speed, I think it took only about 3 hours to ski everything they decided to assign a name to on the trail map. This was a weekday with a lot of folks on the hill but me skiing straight to most chairs. That’s fine considering the setting was too nice not to stop and smell the roses. The resort lodging I chose was standard ski fare in good repair with easy processes. Were it not for needing to put on some miles after skiing, I’d have stayed another night. The terrain is as follows: Learning and kid’s lessons right out the back door at the top of the hill; best turns, most vertical and blacks (mostly legitimate, steeper cruisers) skiers left; half the vertical of the lift skier’s left, well pitched blues/blacks, slower laps on fixed grip quad, skier’s right. Friendly people on a nice hill in a pretty setting, all here!!
