Has anyone heard anything skiing related out of Canaan Valley Resort?

Did they install the power needed for the brand new fan powered snowguns that sat in the parking lot all last winter?

Did they replace the pump so that the can pump more water out of the Blackwater for snowmaking?

Will they be open for skiing and riding for more than two months this season?

Will they allow uphill travel this season?

Enquiring minds want to know if CVR is going to step up their game.

They plan to open on December 15. That’s all I know.

I’m not sure of the answer to any of your questions.  However, if it takes money, I doubt if it was done.   Decisions regarding snowmaking are made in South Dakota. It’s a bottom line issue and will be as it was last season.  We’ve been waiting since early May to have the roof on the Pro shop at the golf course replaced after wind/storm damage.

As far as uphill goes, that discussion is on the table.  Why it became a problem last season, to my understanding, was free heelers droping in on unopen trails, after/before hours and interfering with groomers and grooming.  I was also told that due to that, it bacame a liability issue for the resort.  I’m sure some compromise can be reached between patrol, mountain management and the uphillers.  The close proximity to White Grass is another issue dueto the interconnecting trail system.  We’ll see. 

As far as stepping up their game, we better pray for lots of natural snow, and the loosening of the purse strings for snow making and hiring.

I would GLADLY pay $100 per year and sign a liability waiver to be able to ski at the state park after hours and only during the week, even if on designated slopes and until designated times, like until 8pm, etc. I could care less about skiing uphill during the day since I work full time, and I wouldn’t even want to during open hours anyway with a bunch of people sking down at the same time.
