I am planning to take a "snow day" this Friday and go to 7Springs Thursday afternoon to take advantage of their great deal for a night of lodging and an evening and day on the slopes. Saturday I will go elsewhere, perhaps Timberline or Wisp. And I would really like to catch up with a few of my fellow DCSkiers somewhere. So, here is the poll: Where Are You Planning On Sliding Jan 30-Feb 1?

I think I will be at Timberline this weekend. The last three weeks have been strange - I've been here during the week (here now) but have had other commitments on the weekend. I'm beginning to forget what a lift line looks like grin

I will be skiing 3 times this weekend:

Sat: Stowe
Sun: Stowe
Mon: Stowe

Junior Ski Partner and I are psyched! I need some guidance but do not want to hijack your thread so I will post my questions elsewhere.

Heading to Snowshoe with my wife Sunday night through Wednesday. Looked like a good time to get out there while the gettin is good. And I am seeing rumblings of a possible snow event early next week, which wouldn't hurt!

I am also planning to Ski Wintergreen on Friday of this week. I am hoping by then they will have gotten over the rain/ice/snow mix from Mon-Tues-Weds.

BushwackerinPA,

My family and I will be there Friday and Saturday. Hoping to have some fun doing the Dad-Mom-Toddler skiing tomorrow. The little one loves the Bumps/Tables on Continental.

I had to change my plans due to a bad day at the office today. Hope to leave in morning for Friday afternoon at Canaan, then Sat & Sun at Timberline.
Who else going to TL? I'll probably be wearing my black, grey and white upper ski jacket and helmet with an Alta sticker.
Would enjoy catching up with a couple of DCSkiers!
Meet at top of lifts by ski patrol building at 1030 on Sat???

We're season passholders (although hindered this winter by some unplanned home improvement "projects") and are heading over for the day on Sunday. Only husband and kidlet are skiing. We wanted to take advantage of the comparative heat wave that will be going through and the fact that it should be pretty deserted with the Super Bowl. Went last weekend and while the skiing was great, it was FREEZING.

I get to hang out in the lodge. The joys of being pregnant and having no center of gravity during ski season wink

I'll be at Timberline Saturday and Sunday. Is Canaan Valley worth checking out for an intermediate skier?

I prefer TLine but Canaan is definitely worth checking out, especially if you think the black/double blacks from the top of TLine are too tough.

I dont know if itll save you any money or not, but you can buy the ski the valley pass at a ticket window at either resort for $95 and go back and forth between the two all weekend.

Good comments.

I skied Timberline and CV last weekend using the Ski the Valley pass. CV is definitely worth it for imtermediates to check out, especially since conditions have greatly improved there in recent weeks. It's less crowded with a faster main chairlift for racking up ski mileage, has good intermediate terrain, very nice low-intermediate run called Timber Trail, and has a better beginner hill. Of course, T-Line is great and offers more extensive advanced type skiing.
I have a trip report coming soon on my visit.

I am heading off to the Aspen/Snowmass area with maybe a brief day at Beaver Creek. Try Liberty ( where I volunteer). Because we have a east/west exposure instead of a southern (Whitetail) we keep our snow better and it doesn't melt and freeze as much.I was at Whitetail this past Sunday and was not to impressed.The next day i was at Liberty and the snow was better. Go early!~

I was going to Blue Knob tomorrow but maybe going to the Springs on Super Sunday. I'll be back home in time for the game.

Weekends are family days since I've been laid off, I got time for big boy skiing weekdays. My boy is home from school today so skiing might be in doubt, at least for son and wife.

Thanks, I think I'll try the pass. I loved TLine when I was there 2 weeks ago, and I was trying to convince myself to check CV out. Skied the blacks at TLine no problem, but didn't attempt the double blacks. That place is fantastic!
