Against my better judgement I met some friends at Wintergreen on President's Day Weekend, for a Saturday session. I typically never go boarding around the NoVA area on weekends or holidays, but wanted to get a few runs under my belt in preparation for a Colorado trip in a couple weeks. Plus they had a free place to stay, never a bad thing.
As expected, it was expensive ($74 for 8 hour flex pass) and crowded. The slopes actually weren't that bad, especially on the Highlands (I think? Black diamonds on the far right) but the lift lines took forever. Luckily the person I was with had an Owner's pass so we got to get in a private line, which did go way faster.
Coming from NoVA, I typically go to Massanutten, Bryce, Liberty, or Whitetail b/c I can make the drive to/from the resort same day. 3 hours to Wintergreen is too much to do both ways, but when staying overnight I'd prefer Wintergreen over all those above, especially if they all have some fresh powder.
