Fired up: Snow falls on Wintergreen, sticks at Snowshoe

It may be hard to see in this photograph shot from downtown Charlottesville on Halloween afternoon; but even two days after a rare October snowfall, the slopes of Wintergreen Resort still gleam. The planned seasonal opening of Nelson County ski resort is Saturday, December 10. (Over in Snowshoe, West Virginia, the snow guns were fired up on Friday, October 28, so the nearly foot of snow that fell there appears well on its way to assisting that resort's planned November 23 opening.)
