Another Ski Season in the Books!

Posted on

Another great ski season has come and gone here in Canaan Valley/Timberline land!  Still awaiting final numbers from our resorts and will post as soon as I have them.  One number that I have is 211.  No, it's not an emergency or information phone number, it's how many inches of natural snowfall we have enjoyed!

Back to back 200+" seasons!  This is truly a high mountain environment where winter sports can be enjoyed in their purest form.  Yes, one has to drive a little farther to get here but feel free to do some research and check out the natural snowfall totals for those smaller and much more crowded resorts in VA, NC, and PA!!

 Please remember that this area is not only a winter destination.  With over 1/2 of the land mass in Tucker County being National Forest, Federal Wilderness, National Wildlife Refuge and State Park, there's an amazing amount of outdoor recreation, scenic and nature-based activities for your family to enjoy.  You won't find any waterparks or go-kart tracks, just thousands of acres of wide open spaces sprinkled with small mountain resorts and cool mountain towns.  Some of the east coast's best mountainbiking and hiking is available here, you can play some high-mountain golf, whitewater boat, enjoy some fantastic trout fishing or just relax in a place where summer temperatures rarely exceed the mid 80's!

The website you might want to check for this and other information about visiting the Blackwater Falls/Canaan Valley/Tucker County area is canaanvalley.org.  OR you can go "low tech" and give us a call at 1-800-782-2775 and we can send you our visitors guide.
