Wintergreen is a truly unique “Community of Communities”. In addition to the Wintergreen Resort and its homeowner association WPOA, Wintergreen has many grassroots organizations which enhance the enjoyment. In the past year, many new residents have moved to the community to discover and experience the beauty and serenity of rural mountain and valley living. For those residents and others, here a short summary of the main organizations:
The umbrella homeowners association for Wintergreen property owners. Manages the Fire and Rescue Service, Police Service, Public Works Service and administers finances and government of the association. WPOA also maintains a community information website.
