Children enjoying the winter season

Winter Events

Celebrating winter comes in all forms of events while visiting Canaan Valley in Tucker County, West Virginia, especially when there is so much to offer in Mother Nature’s four season playground.  Canaan Valley and Timberline ski resorts each host end of season weekend long events that include on-slope games, pond skim, live music, and so much more.  Spend early winter crafting your duct tape and cardboard sled for the annual Blackwater Falls State Park Cardboard and Duct Tape Sled Race in February.

For those who take their winter events seriously, the West Virginia Governor’s Cup is the longest standing race in the southeast.  Two days of serious Slalom and Giant Slalom racing on the challenging courses set by seasoned race directors with decades of experience hosting the West Virginia Governor’s Cup.  If big air or shredding rails in the terrain park are your pleasure, Canaan Valley and Timberline resorts host multiple freestyle events in their terrain parks each winter. Outside of the above resort wide events, each individual winter resort destination offers weekend al-a-cart events from December through March.  Almost every weekend you can expect live music during happy hour, or as we in the ski industry call it, apres ski, toasting to a day on the slopes.  White Grass is notorious for guided cross country ski tours, nature hikes by snowshoe, and a full moon ski each month.
