Timberline is located two miles from the Canaan Valley ski area, but offers more advanced terrain than its sibling. Steeps and bumps can be found throughout the resort’s trails, as well as some gladed skiing. Beginner terrain is also available, although beginners may feel more comfortable at Canaan Valley. The lengthy 2-mile long Salamander run at Timberline offers an easy-going pitch that is good for beginners.
For snowboarders, Timberline has two terrain parks which can have features such as thirty, forty, and fifty foot jumps. Timberline sponsors numerous racing events each season, such as USASA Boardercrosses, skier crosses, USASA slopestyle, and Timberline Big Air and Slopestyle competitions.
Telemark and cross-country skiers will find a mapped 17 kilometer back country trail system acessible from Timberline. The resort offers regular clinics and workshops catering to Nordic skiers.
Night skiing is offered on 30% of skiable terrain Thursday through Sunday during the regular season, and throughout the Christmas holiday week. If you plan to ski at night, please double-check with the resort to verify operating hours.
In 2006, Timberline Resort added 60 new stationary snow guns, and added a surface lift to service the terrain parks. In 2007, Timberline added an additional 40 snowguns. Timberline is also in the midst of an expansion at the Western Face which will add new residential and terrain development. In 2010, Timberline was granted permanent access to water from the Blackwater River, which allowed the resort to increase its snowmaking capability.
