DAVIS, W.Va., February 29, 2016 – Canaan Valley Resort Ski Area in West Virginia’s Allegheny Mountains is already looking forward to next year and is offering the “Outrageous Pass” allowing individual skiers to enjoy the hill for the whole season for just $199.
With a single rate for everyone through April 15, 2016, the season pass is available online. The full rate for a season pass is $500 for an individual with various rates for students, seniors, children, West Virginia residents and more.
“Even with great skiing still to be enjoyed this season, it’s not too early to think about next year,” said Steve Drumheller, general manager of Canaan Valley Resort. “A whole season for $199 truly is an outrageous deal.”
Located in the highest mountain valley to the east of the Rocky Mountains, Canaan Valley Resort Ski Area is known for its average annual snowfall of more than 180 inches and breathtaking views of the mountainous region. The ski resort has a summit elevation of 4,280 feet above sea level, 91 skiable acres, four lifts – one quad, two triples and a magic carpet, a terrain park and ski school.
There are 47 trails and slopes, including new glade skiing trails introduced this year. Canaan Valley is known for its great beginner and intermediate terrain, providing a perfect place for new skiers and boarders to learn. In 2012, the resort added Critters Crawl, a dedicated beginner instruction trail serviced by its own magic carpet. The resort’s ski school is a terrific option for beginners as well as skiers and riders looking to sharpen their skills. The school offers group and private lessons.
The new glade skiing is the latest of many offerings that appeal to the experienced ski crowd. The ski area also offers the challenging double black diamond Old Canaan Curve run and Dark Side of the Moon, a long run that travels along the eastern boundary of the ski area. The ski area also has a popular NASTAR (National STAndard Race) racing course for recreational skiers to test their skills under a universal handicapping system.
