The Mountain State Is Skiing’s Best Kept Secret

Oct 21, 2019

For many people, skiing is all about Sugarloaf or Vail, but the Mountain State could be what you’re truly looking for when it comes to adventure. When you explore the area, you’ll quickly see there’s plenty of reasons to spend your time here in West Virginia this ski season.

When you’re looking for something incredible, rent a cabin with us. Then, let us show you the area’s true beauty. Here are a few must-see destinations to add to your list.

Canaan Valley Ski Resort

If you’re visiting the area, Canaan Valley is the type of state park you just cannot overlook. Skiing and snowboarding opportunities are numerous here. You can also do some ice skating, snow tubing, and cross-country skiing as well. The rolling hills and incredible views make it a desirable option for all skill levels.

White Grass Cross County Skiing

Did you know that White Grass Cross Country was voted the best in the region? It’s been called some of the most exciting opportunities for cross country skiing in the MidAtlantic. With curving trails and backcountry skiing at its best, this destination is spectacular to those seeking something with an edge. The area has over 37 miles of maintained trails and over 1,200 vertical feet of cross country to explore. You can also go snowshoeing here.

Black Water Falls Sled Run

Sledding cannot get better than Black Water Falls Sled Run. It is the longest sled run in the east. The only thing more impressive is the view – those freshly snow-dusted evergreens and rolling hills are sure to bring a smile to your face. For those who are all about the adventure, you will not find a more impressive or faster sled run.

What Else Can You Do When You Visit?

West Virginia really is a winter playground. It’s far more affordable than Colorado and offers some of the most impressive experiences you’ll find. From sledding to skiing, it’s all practically in your backyard when you rent a cabin with us. Then, consider the other things to do nearby, including:

  • Aerial tours
  • Scenic trail rides
  • Horseback riding
  • Museums
  • Historical sites
  • Camping — and much more!

This area, while the ideal place for wintertime fun, also offers a lot of options in the spring and summer. There’s something here for the whole family. When you’re ready for an incredible time, book a cabin and a vacation with us. Explore all that West Virginia’s State Parks have to offer.
