I think Timberline in Canaan Valley is still in good shape.

Gee, it's warm enough to sleep in the car too.
1. Snowmaking was very good but you got the impression that the plan was to just lay down enough and not pile it on. This was really true in the halfpipe and minuteman.
2. Grooming as substandard at best, but having said that, rountop grooming usually is really poor so there was a very slight improvement. For the most part, the halfpipe was decently groomed except for the last few weeks when they let it go.
3. Overall--I'd give them a C for the whole year. Given the weather, they did a good job, but there were tons of days that they could have made snow but didnt and i think they paid for it in the end. plus they really need to work on customer service which stinks in most areas especially lifts and maintenance personel. I hope the lesson that they learn form this season is make snow whenever possible!!!
I'm planning on buying another season pass next year, but i am also expecting a rebate on this years' pass since even though i got in tons of days, i dont feel i got my value out of my pass. mainly because i dont think we got maximum effort from the mountain to provide top quality conditions.
