Price is right for student skiing at Wintergeen

by Amanda Baker

Skiing down a powdery-fresh ski slope has never been more freeing. Due to a cut in lift ticket prices, students can enjoy a snow-filled day at a fraction of the regular price.

Liberty’s student center began selling lift ticket vouchers at discount student prices last Tuesday for the remainder of ski season, courtesy of Wintergreen Resort.

Wintergreen, an all-season recreation center in central Virginia, has partnered with Liberty to provide student lift tickets for outdoor enthusiasts.

Student prices include any midweek non-holiday single session for $35 and a weekend single session for $50, giving students a 25 percent cut from the window (regular) prices of $47 and $65, respectively.
If students obtain a voucher, they need to be serious about using it.

“If a student buys a voucher and does not use it, it can not be returned to Wintergreen for credit,” Jay Roberts, vice president of mountain operations at Wintergreen, said.

The resort offers a variety of recreation options, including “45 holes of championship golf on two courses, exhilarating winter skiing, snowboarding and snowtubing, an award-winning tennis program, a full-service spa … hiking, fly fishing, horseback riding, swimming and mountain biking,” according to the Wintergreen Web site.

Wintergreen is located in Wintergreen, Va. on Route 644, spanning 11,000 acres of the Blue Ridge Mountains, according to the Wintergreen Web site. It is 90 minutes from Richmond, Va. and a three-hour drive from Washington, D.C. and North Carolina. For more information about the resort, visit wintergreenresort.com.
