This is the ski shop at the Canaan Valley Cross Country location.

This is actually the Cross Country trail. The down hill is the end of the trail and allows you to ski downhill a long way before you leave. This picture was made late in the evening after we returned from an all day trip.

This is Timberland Resort without the snow. It did snow as you can see from the next pictures.

This is where there are the late night parties. Something going on all the time. Here is a link to a live WEBCAM of Timberline Resort.

All of the Canaan area is a mile high or around 5200 ft. This entire valley is said to be home to flora and fauna found only in the reaches of the Arctic and may have been deposited here during the Ice Age. Even the deer are of a different species than normal Eastern varities of deer.

If it doesn't snow the huge snow blowers will furnish that for you.

Upper Salamander Run offers the beginner lots of time to practice. And if you want to rest when you get through it goes right by your condo or to the club house. I spent quite a bit of time even though I have skiied for years. Very smooth wide and soft snow.

Beech Mountain Resort. Three pictures I must have taken years ago. I think my nephew David Payne was with me.

I would say that is David but I never knew him to wear pink.
