Wonderful Winter Ways to Get Tucker’d in Tucker County

There are plenty of ways to “Get Tucker’d” in Tucker County, West Virginia this season. With everything this high-mountain paradise has to offer throughout the season, it’s no wonder it has become the go-to destination for those who want to embrace winter, not escape it.                                      

Snow sports in Tucker County are legendary, and with good reason. All the necessary natural ingredients are here in abundance to assure the ultimate winter playground. Snow, and lots of it, blankets the region amply in all its sparkling glory. The area’s premier resorts, Canaan Valley Resort State Park and Timberline Ski Resort, are situated only two miles apart and enjoy average snowfall ranges between 150 and 180 inches!  The lofty mountains embrace the sky with summits that exceed 4,260 feet.

Over 80 slopes and trails, eight lifts, terrain parks and a snowtubing park offer fun for every level of thrill seeker. At Canaan Valley Resort, downhill skiers and snowboarders of all levels get Tucker’d on its 43 slopes and trails. With a vertical drop of 850 feet, adventurers of all ages enjoy snowboarding, skiing, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating and snow tubing.

One of a kind West Virginia Winter Wonderland.  It is not that Tucker County has the best single winter activity like skiing or tubing, than any other resort.  What sets TC apart from the rest is the fact that within a 12 mile radius we have more various types of winter activities combined than anywhere in the mid-Atlantic.  Cabin Mountain in Canaan Valley is home to three ski resorts, each of which are located a mere 10 minutes by vehicle from one another.  The three full service ski resorts are Canaan Valley and Timberline Ski Resort’s, and Whitegrass Cross Country Ski Resort.  In addition to traditional skiing, Canaan Valley Resort offers ice skating on an outdoor, full size ice rink and four lane snow tubing hill.  Looking for that one of a kind experience?  Look no further than the lift-accessed sledding hill at Blackwater Falls State Park.  Their rustic warming hut also offers snowshoe and cross country ski rentals that take you anywhere in the park, including the famous Lindy Point overlook.  No matter the age, no matter the skill level, Tucker County truly has something for everyone come winter time.
