The profile has some information although not a lot. I haven't been to Mystic, but have friends who have visited. The ski area is very tiny - really an afterthought to the Nemacolin resort, which has just about any activitity you could want year-round. They do have snow tubing. The resort itself is supposed to be a fantastic, upscale place. Some relatives that are med school students in Pittsburgh try to go to Nemacolin to get pampered every now and then.
If anyone would like to write some "Readers Comments" for Mystic Mountain, I'd be happy to add them to the profile.
I have one more question. In mucking around skimaps.com, there is a place in Virginia called "Cherokee" that has a 703 number and appears to be north of I-66. Is this a failed resort that never opened or an old resort that has closed? Anyone have any information? The map appears to me from a decade ago.
I believe I have seen Cherokee from I-66 while heading out to Shenandoah National Park, several years ago. I didn't know it was a defunct ski area at the time, and one time went on a wild goose chase trying to find it, driving around various back roads in search of its entrance. I never did find it, but was sure it was ski slopes I was seeing from 66.
"You might have been one of the few to try Cherokee ski area west of Warrenton, Virginia during the few brief seasons it operated around a decade ago. It became a victim of inadequate cash flow and a succession of warm greenhouse-effect winters. You can still see Cherokee's trail cuts off to the left as you head west on I-66 near Linden, VA."
