CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Wintergreen Resort is getting recognition for a project that more than doubled the Nelson County ski resort's snowmaking capability.
The Daily Progress (http://bit.ly/1c6ttS9 ) reports that Wintergreen received the Honor Award for Engineering Excellence from the American Council of Engineering Companies of Virginia.
The council described the resort's recently completed installation of a new 5 million gallon water storage tank and upgrades to its computerized snowmaking equipment as "a decade of improvements in 120 days."
The $6 million project was headed by architectural and engineering firm Wiley Wilson. The resort says the improvements allow it to make twice as much snow twice as fast.
