Living in Charlottesville means that I don’t get much of a real winter.Â Not like NY, not even like NJ.Â It does get cold, into the 20s sometimes even, but there isn’t a lot of snow.Â When it does snow it doesn’t stick around.
Strangely, I am closer to a ski resort than I was when I lived in NJ.Â Wintergreen is about 45 minutes away from home and even closer to work.Â Yet, I haven’t been there at all this year.
The biggest reason is that the place gets soo crowded. If I had more opportunities to play hookie from work I would go. If it wasn’t $65 for a weekend day pass… Sorry, I’ll save my money and ski somewhere worth going to.
We went to Telluride over Christmas, I skied four gorgeous days in a row (two snowy, two sunny)Â and I have not been on the snow since.
But now we are headed to Davis, WV and will ski at Canaan Valley or Timberline with some friends up there.Â I’m excited.
