Wintergreen getting ready to make snow
NELSON COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- There could be snow on Wintergreen Mountain as soon as next week.
Wintergreen Resort has 400 snow guns on the mountain, which are controlled by computer programs that can adjust the snow-making to the weather.
Director of Operations Zach Marlowe said once they start making snow, the slope is ski-able within four to seven days.
"Next week we do see some snowmaking weather coming towards our way. So, thankfully we've got a little bit of rain to kind of refill our ponts, make sure we're good to go for the snowmaking aspect and then we'll turn the guns on here shortly and turn this into a winter wonderland," Marlowe said.
There's no opening date for the ski mountain yet. In the meantime, the resort is still offering fall activities.
