Time to Shovel on Home at Canaan

The situation was similar at ski areas across the Southeast on Sunday morning—anybody heading home from high elevation lodging was faced with a little shoveling to get the auto out from under two plus feet of drifted snow with deeper drifts. Here at Canaan Valley Resort State Park the lodge lot had been plowed but there was plenty of interest in borrowing the resort’s snow shovels and brooms. By Saturday, the snow had overnight opened the entire resort from a quarter of its runs to 100%.
