Winter activity season at Canaan Valley Resort State Park begins in November

DAVIS, W.Va. — Canaan Valley Resort State Park will start its winter season in mid-November this year by opening the tube and ice skating parks for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday weekend.

The covered outdoor ice skating rink will open Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 23, and operate through the holiday weekend. The tube park will be open Friday, Nov. 24, through Sunday, Nov. 26. Canaan Valley Resort's 1,200-foot-long tube park is the longest in the mid-Atlantic region.

After the holiday weekend, the tube and skating parks will close until they reopen with the rest of ski-area operations in mid-December. Canaan Valley Resort plans to open its ski slopes Dec. 15. Visitors can look forward to skiing and boarding every day until the close of the season on March 18, 2018.

This season, Canaan Valley Resort is using additional state-of-the-art T40 snow guns to increase snowmaking capacity an additional 20 percent over last year's doubled capacity.

The lodge and cabins at this four-season resort and outdoor recreation destination are open year-round. To learn more about skiing, lift passes and other winter sports at Canaan Valley Resort State Park, visit www.canaanresort.com or call 304-866-4121.
