After some extraordinarily cold temps for the last few days, we’re seeing a milder trend for a few days with some chances of some underdeveloped snow coming in Thursday night through Saturday early. That looks to be changing over to MORE SNOW and Sunday is looking very snowy! Behind that? We get right back into the freezer with VERY COLD temps and more snow!
Make plans to ski or ride some of the best ski and snowboarding conditions in years!

Our Mountain is a little warmer this morning, but overall, the first part of this week has been nice and cold. All of the cold weather allowed us to continue pilling up snow on our core trails in anticipation of skiing and riding all the way through to the Slide and Splash Bash on the 21st of March. If you like skiing and riding in March, Wintergreen will have snow for you! The next 4 weekends are packed full of activities: the final Freestyle Double Cross, Slopestyle, Rail Jam and The Slide and Splash Bash!
