wv ski resortsWhile top bluegrass festivals, state parks and spectacular fall foliage scenery make West Virginia a major tourist draw throughout the rest of the year, winter is a beacon for downhill action at several ski resorts nestled within the state's awesome Appalachian mountains.

Its largest ski area is Snowshoe Mountain in Pocahontas County, featuring a total of 56 slopes on two mountains reachable on one lift ticket. Besides skiing trails (also open to snowboarding), this major resort also offers cross country trails and snowmobile runs for all-around winter fun.

More white powder awaits in the Canaan Valley ski area featuring two major ski areas - the Canaan Valley Resort and the Timberline resort, each offering a variety of downhill slopes for every level of ability, as well as breathtaking beauty set amid the 15,000-acre Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge

Further south, Winterplace is the place to be for family-friendly winter fun with 28 downhill trails and snowboarding areas on 90 acres of skiable terrain. In addition, Winterplace also features a the longest snow tubing park in the state featuring 16 lanes and two super carpet lifts.
