About Us

Women’s team. Group of women holding hands

Come join us at our General Meetings held bimonthly beginning in January. Meetings are held at 10 AM at the Trillium House except, July and September when we meet outdoors at the Chestnut Springs Pool Pavilion.


The General Meetings begin with some time to socialize among members, followed by a brief business meeting and a short program of significance to members.

Also our specialized interest groups (clubs) meet throughout the year to share hobbies, talents, field trips and special events. Anyone can join any of the groups at any time by contacting the Group Chair. Represented interests include gardening, music, food & cooking, handicrafts, and books.


We are a casual group. Dues are $20.00 at the beginning of the year. The dues keep the organization financially stable, defray the cost of renting the meeting room, materials, marketing, coffee and paper product expenses, and the July and November celebrations.


If you have any questions or want more information about Mountain Women, give any of the members of the Steering Committee a call or an email.

WinterGreen MoUntain Women

Our History

young women travel nature on weekends

In the fall of 2003, the hospitality committee of the Mountain Homesteaders Association, chaired by Kate Allenbach and including Jean Bertelsen, Sue Tiller and Joan Stemmler, discussed how to welcome newcomers to the mountain. They sought to determine how to identify permanent residents living on the mountain, and how the women on the mountain could get together to relieve the tediousness of the long winter. Slowly the idea of “mountain women” took hold and ongoing discussion, research and planning culminated in a first meeting on February 4, 2005.


The meeting’s purpose was to determine whether there was an interest in establishing a network of mutual support for women living on the mountain, especially during the winter months. Kate Allenbach, Kathy Knowles, Joan Stemmler and Irma Graf planned the event. More than thirty women attended and expressed their overwhelming support.


Out of that meeting grew the essence of what mountain women is today: a networking and social support group with mechanisms to accommodate special interests, communication and neighborhood cohesion, as well as to contribute to the vitality of the greater Wintergreen community.

Reflection Garden

In 2014, a “Reflection Garden” was designed/constructed by a group of Wintergreen volunteers, in collaboration with WPOA, on a piece of wooded property located behind the Chestnut Springs Picnic and Pool area. Landscaping with native plants, rocks and benches provides a place of peace and space for reflection on Wintergreen owners or employees who have passed on. Contributions can be made to support the overall maintenance and/or to memorialize a specific person (or pet).


Any Wintergreen owner, former owner, extended family member and WPOA and Resort employees can be memorialized through specific selected opportunities. We have occasional garden workdays and announce them at Mountain Women meetings, so everyone interested can come and help in the creation of our Reflection Garden.

King Custom Engraving will also engrave our memory stones for us. If interested in ordering a memory stone, please contact the Chair, Marti Szczur at szczurm@gmail.com.
