Wintergreen Weekend by David McCue

Despite a crowded weekend, ninety percent open terrain and beautiful blue skies came through at wintergreen for a great experience for me and my friends today.

The mountain was full of fun

An informal consensus, based on my conversations, was that the high volume may have been based on people like me thinking they could outsmart MLK crowds and thus, we all congregated one week later.

Highlands was great just two trails left to open


But Wintergreen kept things moving and not only did everything keep flowing but everyone I talked to was having a good time. It was a busy but very happy day on the mountain because of an ideal mix of good management, perfect weather (although my chin seems to be sunburned) and a lot of new terrain where they keep building base; they are going to hit the 100 % mark very soon.

Bring your friends.

David McCue grew up in Amarillo, Texas and annoyed the natives of New Mexico and Colorado by skiing on their mountains throughout his childhood and teens. He put down his neon 200cm GS skis for nearly twenty years until the fateful day he took his own young sons for a half day to Cataloochee. He has never looked back, except when alone and deep in the trees. A carpenter by trade, the uncertainties of the housing market have further honed David’s snow skills. He now resides with his patient wife on the banks of the Haw River in central North Carolina and annoys the natives of West Virginia by skiing on their mountains.
