Canaan Valley winters average over 150 inches of snow and the area offers some of the best skiing in the Mid-Atlantic. Ask about the Ski the Valley lift ticket; one low cost ticket that gets you on both downhill ski resorts, Canaan Valley and Timberline. Timberline Resort offers 1000 ft of vertical with a top elevation of 4263. Great skiing and snow tubing is also found at Canaan Valley Resort. Both resorts have a wide variety of trails for all skill levels. There are endless trails for Nordic and back country skiing as well. Whitegrass Nordic Center is one of the premier Nordic skiing destinations on the east coast. The state parks, Wildlife Refuge and National Forest have miles and miles of trails that can be skied as well. Blackwater Falls State Park has a sledding hill with a tow rope that operates on the weekends. During the week you have to hike to slide.
Escape from the summer heat to this high mountain valley which sits at 3200 ft elevation. Enjoy cool summers; Canaan Valley has an average summer temperature of 75 degrees.

Blackwater Falls State Park has some of the most photographed scenery in the state. Blackwater Falls and the Blackwater Canyon are a must see any time of year.
Fall is an incredible time to be in the valley. Peak week is usually the first week in October. Fall festivals are found in the nearby towns of Davis and Elkins. Davis has the Leaf Peepers festival at the end of September and Elkins has the Mountain State Forest Festival the first week of October. There are several nostalgic train rides out of nearby Elkins and Cass that take you on a tour through the mountains with incredible views.
Spring brings new birth to the mountains. Enjoy wildlife watching and the spring wild flowers. Mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding and river rafting are popular activities this time of year. Check with the area resorts for a schedule of activities.
