Timberline Four Seasons Resort Reviews


Legit Ski Country and Skiing Where You Wouldn't Expect It


Pros: Excellent terrain & snow conditions (for the region), legit tree skiing, great skier vibe, scenic location, access to Whitegrass and Canaan Valley

Cons: Slooow lifts, older infrastructure, not the most efficient operation

Timberline has been my home mountain for 5+ years now. For hard-core skiers, it is a gem in the Mid Atlantic. I grew up in the Northeast, skiing Vermont and Western Massachusetts; Timberline has a lot of the same skier culture. It doesn't have the same stats as Vermont, but it is still pretty respectable: 1000 feet of vertical, annual snowfall of 150-200 inches a year (greater in some years), and some pretty impressive tree skiing most years. And some epic tree skiing during blizzard years. With some nice groomers for high speed cruising and several challenging runs with moguls and man-made snow whales. And two long and twisty runs for beginners and intermediates: Salamander and...

Fun mountain


Pros: good terrain, relatively abundant natural snow, fairly economical

Cons: creaky infrastructure, somewhat remote

Timberline, WV This is a quirky, fun mountain and one of the best places to ski/ride in the mid-Atlantic. Timberline is located in Canaan Valley, WV, sometimes described as the highest valley east of the Mississippi River. It received ~250" of natural snow during the 2010 season. "The Valley" also encompasses nearby Canaan Valley downhill ski area and the White Grass Touring Center. The snow, elevation, and multiple venues for both on and off-piste skiing imbue the area with perhaps the nearest thing to authentic alpine character to be found in this part of the US. Timberline ski area has a legitimate 1000 foot vertical drop and a summit elevation of almost 4300'. The three dozen trails...

Timberline! The real skiers mountain of the Mid-Atlantic!


Pros: 150-200in natural annual snowfall, great tree skiing, challenging advanced and expert terrain, making more infrastructure improvements

Cons: Slow lifts but are manageable

Boasting an average annual snowfall of 150-200in of natural snow, 40 named trails, an alpine summit of 4,268 feet, 1000 ft of vertical excitement, and the best glades skiing south of Vermont! Timberline is definitely the place to go to for skiing/snowboarding in the Mid-Atlantic region! Timberline has been my home mountain for the past four years and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else in the area after a big storm dumps snow! Located in a real skiers environment in Canaan Valley at a high elevation, a liberal in-bounds policy, and temperatures 10-15 degrees lower than the DC area make this a real legit ski resort destination!  Closer resorts to DC receive less than 50in of snow per...
