resh air and wide-open spaces are just what the doctor is ordering right now, as we begin the new year a little wary and maybe a little cranky. Not another annus horribilis (horrible year) for us in 2022, if you please. We want an annus can-do-is, an annus can-cope-is, an annus with the good cheer, high spirits, wellbeing, and exhilaration that come from, say . . . vigorous exercise on a beautiful mountain. Here in Central Virginia we have the perfect spots to breathe in the fresh air, shake out the cobwebs, and kick out the jams. What we have are two lovely Blue Ridge Mountain resorts: Wintergreen in Nelson County and Massanutten in Rockingham County. Play there, relax there, even live there if you want. Come on up. Take a look and see.

Wintergreen Located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, Wintergreen is just an hour’s drive from Charlottesville—perhaps a little faster or slower depending on whether you’re driving up the mountain or driving down to go home!

“The breadth of recreational opportunities at Wintergreen make it one of the most varied and complete resorts in the country,” says recently retired General Manager Rod Kessler, who helped to make it that way. The state-of-the-art computerized snow system, the only fully automated system on the East Coast, covers all of Wintergreen’s slopes, guaranteeing that every day is a snow day, all season long.

All told, the 11,000-acre resort boasts 130 slide-able acres with 24 ski and snowboard slopes and trails, two terrain parks, the state’s largest tubing park, and a snow park for young’uns.

How They Get All That Snow The sophisticated, computerized snowmaking system that keeps Wintergreen white was installed during the winter of 2002-2003 and has been fre-

quently upgraded since. This complex system makes double the snow in half the time as its predecessor, using some 40,000 linear feet of pipeline, allowing it to pump 11 million gallons of water through its more than 400 snow guns in a mere two days if need be. All this muscle—stat geeks, check the website for more—gives Wintergreen’s hills a uniform depth and consistency of snow from the top of the slopes to the bottom. The system also allows the resort to recover more quickly from rain or unseasonably warm weather, making for an extended snow sports season. Depending on Mother Nature’s own whims, Wintergreen makes snow from November into March, and even as late as early April. No wonder that experienced winter sports enthusiasts rave.

Snow Play Wintergreen hosts about 200,000 total visitors a year, and about 75,000 of those come to ski. Another 25,000 come to snowboard. Twenty-eight percent of Wintergreen’s snowy terrain is considered suitable for beginners, while 16 percent is more difficult; 44 percent

is more challenging yet, and 12 percent is for experts only. The Cliffhanger, a double-black-diamond expert hill, and Outer Limits, a 2,000-foot single-black-diamond, will challenge the best skiers. Eagles Swoop and Tyro are suited for intermediate skiers, and Upper & Lower Dobie are for beginners. Wintergreen’s Terrain Park is the place to hone freestyle skills on a progression of features designed to accommodate a variety of skill levels. On any given day the park might feature tabletops and fun boxes, spines and hips, straight, rainbow, and s-rails, battleships and down-kinks. Frequent changes to the layout of its more than 40 features keep it challenging even for daredevils. A dedicated lift takes users back up the slope fast—though not as fast as they went down! Virginia’s largest tubing park, the Plunge, runs down on a hill longer than three football fields. Tubing fans (ages 6 and up, and at least 42 inches tall) zoom down this “Scream Machine” at speeds up to 30 mph, then take a conveyor lift back up and do it again. Slide, glide and spin fans like the 45x90 foot Shamokin Ice Rink, located in the heart of the mountain village, just off the Blue Ridge Terrace. Refrigerated by a 125-ton chiller, it accommodates up to 60 people at a time. Skiers and snowboarders alike can perfect their jumps and challenge themselves and fellow competitors on Wintergreen’s rail jams and slopestyle courses. Rail jams are jib contests in which skiers and

snowboarders do their tricks on rails, boxes, pipes, towers, wall rides, etc. Rail jams usually have three feature choices for riders to hit on a run. Every rider gets as many runs as time allows. Wintergreen changes the features in its sports parks—rails, different boxes, change jumps, etc.—every week or two throughout the year to keep them fresh.

Lessons Wintergreen offers private lessons— one-on-one coaching—for adults of all levels of skill: from beginners who have never stood on a ski or snowboard to

experienced sporters who love taking it to the max. Many of Wintergreen’s trained instructors have PSIA (Professional Ski Instructors of America) or AASI (American Association of Snowboard Instructors) certification, and all have passion for teaching the sports they love. They offer one- or two-hour private lesson sessions throughout the day, including Early Bird Private Lessons when the slopes are nearly empty. Family Lessons are a fun way for families to ski or snowboard together, and to develop skills while learning to

be safe. Family Lessons instructors also offer tips and tricks for parents to help their kids learning throughout the day. While Wintergreen’s Devils Grill and The Edge cannot currently accept reservations for sit-down dining, take-out food can still be ordered via the free Wintergreen app from The Edge and Upper Crust Pizza.

unspoiled beauty, reasonable prices for first and second homes, and quick and easy access to major metropolitan areas convinces many of them stay, whether to live on the mountain or in the Stoney Creek community below just eight miles away. Dima Holmes lives in nearby Nellysford and joined the Wintergreen Real Estate Company team in 2002, just a year after she moved to the USA from her native country of Bulgaria. Her company currently has seven homes available at Wintergreen, she notes, and four at Stoney Creek. They sell very quickly, she says. Their relatively low numbers indicate their desirability. Wintergreen homes are great investments that will increase in value substantially over time. “Wintergreen and Stoney Creek have always been a big draw to Nelson County,” says Nest Realty’s Chastity Morgan. “Their numerous amenities coupled with natural beauty makes them appealing as a destination or a place to call home.” Nest’s David Ferrall lists just a few of those near at hand luxuries: “What draws people is the beauty of the county and the breweries and wineries, and the hiking, skiing and golf.” Marlo Allen, also with Nest Realty, was raised in Nelson County and purchased property at both Wintergreen and Stoney Creek. “It’s a beautiful place to grow up,” she says. “There are so many things to do: hiking, wonderful rivers for canoeing and kayaking, a great farmers market here in Nellysford, and just a good sense of community. It’s a beautiful place for people to visit and unwind. But you’re also not too far from Charlottesville and other things, be it for work or shopping.” “I think one of the attractions is the lower taxes here—people are amazed at what you get without having to pay excessive taxes like they’re used to in some

of these other northern states. We get a lot of people who move here who want a little slower pace, but still want to be not far from even large cities like D.C. and Richmond. We even get people who buy a second home here initially to someday retire here, and of course we do get a lot of second home buyers because of all the outdoor activities.”

Massanutten Like Wintergreen, Massanutten is a gorgeous four-season resort offering numerous ways to put work and daily responsibilities behind and go out and have some great outdoor fun. Nestled in a little town with a population of around 2,600, Massanutten’s 6,000 acres offer a variety of amenities, making it one of the premier all-seasons resort destinations on the East Coast. Wintering, or just visiting at Massanutten gives you multiple ways to slide, as

avid downhill skiers, snowboarders, snow tubers, and skaters all know. The tubing hill features up to 16 lanes, 900 feet in length, with 120-foot drops. Future Olympians and novices alike take spins around an outdoor rink made possible by a 125-ton chiller and over 34,000 feet of tubing that transform the resort’s tennis courts into a frozen winter playground. For the past 40 years they’ve been warming up at the Massanutten Ski Lodge. Grab N Go Café on the lower level of the lodge, and the Base Camp Bar & Grill right outside on a new 5,000 square foot ski lodge patio, are where they refuel. Enthusiastic instructors from the PSIA and the AASI teach students to navigate terrain park obstacles and get down the mountain with more ease and confidence at Snow Circuit and at Easy Street. In addition to private lessons, semi-private lessons are currently being offered for

guests who are part of the same family or traveling party. In better times, Massanutten will again offer Team Sports & Racing. The Alpine Team, open to skiers ages 7-19 who can ski in control on intermediate to advanced terrain, focuses on improving skills and learning alpine ski racing, both Giant Slalom (GS) and Slalom (SL). Members of the Freeride Team—skiers and snowboarders ages 7-19 who can safely navigate intermediate and advanced terrain—develop technical and snowboarding skills and receive freestyle and race competition training. Visitors can come in out of the cold and go on simulated adventures in Massanutten’s three completely immersive escape rooms or plunge into other worlds at Real Escapes virtual reality stations and racing simulators. The new Mayday Escape Room players might work together to seal the doors before the vessel is claimed by the ocean, search for a mysterious jewel in Zanzibar, or rescue a captive from Voodoo Island. Massanutten’s escape room concepts are sure to be an adventure like no other! All in all, it’s a lot—who has time to be bored? Most of us would love to live nearby. Massanutten area living opportunities range from a 16,988 square foot lot for a mere $39,900 to a four bedroom, three and-a-half-bath, 7,100 square foot house on a 609,840 square foot piece of property for $1,980,000 in Elkton. If it’s cold, they’re moving fast and staying warm up at Wintergreen and Massanutten, and if they aren’t, they’re at a food stand, or maybe a fancy restaurant, enjoying hot chocolate. So come for a visit. Head up the mountains and exchange your wheels for skis, skates, tubes and boards. Slide all around. You might even put down stakes.
