|we loved Wintergreen "this much" :)|
Wintergreen Resort is a four-season mountain retreat in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. Since I was born and raised in Virginia, I had mostly heard about people using it for winter skiing but it turns out that it's great for summer/spring/fall get-aways as well!
-spa with indoor pool, outdoor pool, sauna, steam room
-26 trails for skiing/snowboarding
-45 holes of championship golf
We took full advantage of the spa/pool and the running trails!
We went on a 1.5 hour trail run on Saturday morning...don't know if it was the 4,000 ft elevation or the steep terrain but it I was pretty thoroughly worked out by the end.
The five of us were each assigned a different meal, which worked out really well and we had plenty of food leftover. I don't have a ton of go-to recipes, so it was fun to learn a couple new simple and healthy ideas-- I've already recreated the salmon dinner from Saturday night!

Have you ever been on a girls weekend?
This was my first one and we had such an enjoyable time, we're already looking at the calendar for the spring...
