Value Season begins at Canaan Valley

Lift tickets will drop in price Monday, March5 at Canaan Valley Resort, as the West Virginia resort ushers in its Value Season. Weekend adult lift ticket prices have dropped from $39 to $22, a savings of over 40 percent. Junior and senior lift tickets also dropped, to $17, and there has been a corresponding drop in lodging prices, as well.

“This is one of the best times of the ski season to head to the slopes, because we’ve substantially reduced the price of our lift tickets - bargain hunters should take notice,” said Steve Logue, managing director of Canaan Valley Resort.

Snowshoe’s golf course gets a new name

When Snowshoe Mountain Resort’s golf course opens on April 13, it will have a new name. The Gary Player Signature Championship Golf Course, formerly known as Hawthorne Valley, will become the Raven Golf Club at Snowshoe Mountain, reflecting a decision by Intrawest Corporation to include the course in the prestigious Raven Golf Group. Intrawest owns the West Virginia ski resort and acquired Raven Golf in 1998.

“Being one of only five Raven courses in North America is an honor for our nine-year old course,” said Chip Hierlihy, Snowshoe Mountain’s Director of Golf. “A Raven course has the reputation to provide discerning players with thrilling, high-quality golf experiences, unique to their environments and backed by the kind of service traditionally reserved for private club members and resort guests,” he added.

Other Raven courses are located in Arizona, Florida, and Colorado. Two additional courses are scheduled to open in New Jersey and Ontario in the next year.

Golf and Travel magazine recently recognized Snowshoe’s golf course as one of the Top 40 resort courses in the U.S. Snowshoe reports that there will be no changes to the course, just the name.
