West Virginia’s Canaan Valley Resort is expanding its Terrain Park this year, and will continue to partner with nearby Timberline Resort to offer a “Ski the Valley Pass,” a two-day lift ticket valid at both ski areas.
“We’re incorporating a full-range of obstacles and features that will add to the fun of skiing or boarding,” said David Bostic, general manager of the resort, in reference to the Terrain Park.
Canaan Valley Resort will also remain the only resort in the region to offer snow body boarding.
“It’s a great winter sport because anyone, regardless of age, can enjoy the experience with only an hour of instruction,” said Bostic.
The two-day Ski the Valley pass allows skiers and boarders to spend one day skiing at Canaan Valley Resort and another day skiing at Timberline Resort. During value season (from opening through December 25, 2008 and March 9-22, 2009), the Ski the Valley pass is $53 on weekdays and $60 on weekends. During prime season the rate rises to $65 on weekdays and $98 on weekends. The passes can be purchased at either resort.
