Wintergreen Resort Guarantees Cool Temperatures This Summer
Wintergreen Resort, located high atop the Blue Ridge Mountains in Central Virginia, enjoys summer temperatures consistently 10 to 15 degrees cooler than the nearby cities of Richmond, Washington, D.C., or even Philadelphia, which have had summer temperatures ranging from the low 80’s to a sweltering 97 degrees for the past two summers. According to WeatherBug, the resort’s source of meteorological information, summer highs at Wintergreen averaged around 76 degrees in 2004 and 2005, by comparison.
As a result, Wintergreen Resort is offering the “Guaranteed Cool Summer Getaway” promotion July 5 through September 30, 2006. If the daily high temperature exceeds 85 degrees Fahrenheit at the resort’s mountaintop, Wintergreen will credit $100 to the guest’s bill at checkout. The “Getaway” promotion prerequisites include:
