It would be great if CV would post a report tomorrow regarding which slopes they expect to be open on Saturday.  People are making decisions regarding if they make the drive.  In particular, it would be nice to know if Timbers and/or the main trail under the Weiss Lift is going to be open.  Maybe I’m missing as I heard rumors Timbers will be open but an update sometime Friday on the report page would be very appreciated.  Of course, we already appreciate the fact that you are opening this weekend as promised.  Must be alot colder at that end of the valley ;)

I just got an email from CVR.

Ski Season is Here!

Join us this Saturday, December 10 for Opening Day of the 2016-17 ski season.

We’ve doubled our snow making this season. We’ll be open with 7 trails including Timber, our 1 1/4 mile run from the top of the mountain. In honor of our 45th season, we’re offering two day lift tickets for $45 this weekend! Chaga Tea Project will provide live entertainment at Quenchers Pub at 3PM.

The skiing might be good, but my guess is that the apres ski party at Quenchers Pub will be lots of fun.

A two day ticked and a room Saturday night at the lodge would be a really fun way to spend the weekend. I’m out already booked in to another gig Sunday afternoon.  But, if I lived closer and wasn’t busy Sunday I’d be seriously considering that plan for the weekend.

I think the snow will be great packed powder based on temps staying cold.   Besided Timber Run to the top, and the beginner area on the right, the main drag down the face will be open to mid station I suspect since it’s got tons of snow on it and making more and was skiable a week and a half ago.  Its 15 degrees F with a few inches of fluffy lake-flake falling as we speak!

A few things to report:

First, kudos to our Mike Chaney and his staff. They have been working around the clock to keep our snowmaking equipment producing at capacity. Between their efforts, our new equipment and that beautiful blast of cold air, we are looking at a great opening weekend and start to the season.

Second, we we will be open to the top of the mountain with access to the 1¼-mile Timber Trail as well as intermediate trail Valley Vista and advanced trail Face which are open from mid station.  Open green trails include Lower Timber Run, Sissy Schuss, Bunny Buster, Cutback and the teaching area Critters Crawl.  We will be operating the A and B lifts to service these areas. The magic carpet in Critters Crawl will also be running. 

Third, we are already making snow and building up the base on Gravity – our most advanced run – and are shooting to have it open December 17. Get ready to “Defy Gravity.”

More to come.

Wow.

Hats off to Mountain Ops at Canaan Valley.  They really came through with the upgraded snowmaking capacity: Timber Trail on opening day, and snowmaking beginning on Gravity.  A far cry from previous years.  Go get em, CV!  Looking forward to getting out there.  

See you on the Dark Side of the Moon.

On Sunday afternoon they opened the top portion of Valley Vista so they have top to bottom on that main run under the lift.  Kudos to CV for opening.  It shows they respect their season pass holder that give them money in the spring and summer.  It also gave their employees a chance to hone the operation of the resort before the big Xmas holiday.  Their instructors were busy clinicing away all weekend.  Snow surface was very nice as well.  Good job CV.

Gravity will likely be open next weekend.  Looking forward to a great season at Canaan.  Hi Fred!

It looks like snow is coming our way in the next couple of days, which is good news for anyone thinking about a last-minute pre-New Year’s Eve skiing fix. And if your schoolkids are bouncing off the walls at your house, we have you covered.  We’ve set up family games, crafts, scavenger hunts and more between now and New Year’s Eve. There are a few last-minute lodge rooms available too. The terrain park and Gravity advanced ski run are open, and skiers have already set out to #DefyGravity. Plus the holiday night skiing starts tonight, and the tubing park and ice skating rink are open for business. If you’re hoping to get in some runs before the end of the year, come on out and have some fun with us at Canaan Valley Resort.

Canaan Valley Resort and their ski area have made many improvements over the last couple of years.  We DCSkiers need to show our appreciation by using and enjoying the improvements from the slopes to the lodging!
