Wintergreen is about Connecting
Becoming part of Wintergreen is easy. Every day-tripper and vacationer is welcomed by the wildlife and mountains. They can also luxuriate at the resort for a few hours or weeks. Fun visits are how many become convinced that making a long-term commitment in the Wintergreen mountains is wise.
Property owners and their guests not only enjoy the beauty of the Blue Ridge and the amenities of the WPOA, but neighbors have banded together to create a large network of very active social and community organizations within Wintergreen. The Wintergreen Mountain Homesteaders is just one of many groups.
Some are completely volunteer-managed groups focused on the community, such as the neighborhood groups on the mountain and in the valley, the Wintergreen Sporting Club (with groups who enjoy biking, archery, shooting, fishing, or boating), and the Mountain Women. And then there are the very loose-knit teams such as the Mountain Cat Feeding Co-op, the Wintergreen Wine Corps, book clubs and gardening groups.
Others are formal, extensive and elaborate such as Wintergreen Performing Arts or the Nature Foundation at Wintergreen that are professionally managed and offers programs to the public. Service groups such as Wintergreen Adaptive Sports and the Ski Patrol have highly focused training programs. Rodes Farm Stables brings together horse owners who enjoy miles of riding trails among the mountains.
The volunteers vital to everyone at Wintergreen–and supported by WPOA as well as donations from the Wintergreen community–are the dedicated men and women in the community's fire and rescue organizations.
