From Timberline's website:

------------------------------
Timberline opened new gladed areas this year. The primary new area is from the mid-station pump house down to the mid station lift shack and from the lift
line to White Lightning. We haven't named the trail yet. We may open that up to the public for suggestions.
------------------------------

Suggestions?

Poached Glades... they've already been skied and snowboarded out... I might have contributed to that last season. How could you resist... such nice powder and openness in there before they got them ready to be glades.

The Glades Formally Known as Canaanman's Private Stash?

How about "Flying Squirrel Glades" in honor of the very famous but ever illusive WV Flying Squirrel. This would follow in the tradition of Salamander--a trail named after the Cheat Mountain Salamander (another endangered species in the Allegheny Highlands).

For a picture of the little beast:

Nah, Cherry Bowl will always be my secret stash, that and a few driveways in the residential area.

Why not just like spread Lower Thunderdraft throughout them? Just call it lower thunderdraft.

I'm with Andy, I like Pump House Glades. It makes sense because they are located below the pump house on skiers right of Upper Thunder. Everyone sees it from the lift and its a good landmark.

Opps misread Andy's post.

Canaanman, If you thought they were good skiing before, wait till you see them this year. That area is beautifully cleared up underbrush and should be great skiing.

You know there's an impressive natural rainbow between The Drop and Silver Streak... completely perfect in every manner.

Long story short, the lower portion of the glades are excellent. And yes, I had first tracks through them on Friday... followed shortly by a whole lot of other tracks (by other people).


One suggestion, make an EXIT to those things. Dropping off a foot high ledge onto a flat, hard surface is NOT healthy. Could you ask the grooming team to smooth that ledge over at the bottom of them, please?
