We spent the MLK weekend at the Wintergreen Resort in Virginia for a short skiing vacation. It turned out to be perfect timing, as the resort had several inches of new snow, and the nightly temperatures allowed for abundant snow making.
We had two full days of skiing on Sunday and Monday, however, our Tuesday plans were changed dramatically today with a significant snowstorm on the doorstep. We debated keeping to our plan, which included skiing today with the 4″ to 8″ of new snow expected at Wintergreen. Knowing how traffic on I-81 can be even on a good day, though, we decided to head home.
It turned out to be the right decision, as getting down the Wintergreen mountain was already dicey at 10 a.m., and by the time we turned into our driveway three hours later, we had 6″ of snow on the ground with more on the way. Ironically, our first skiing trip of the year was cut short by…a snow storm.
