Timberline, WV - Snowy Luau Weekend 3/21&22/2009
One of the best weekends of mid-Atlantic spring skiing I’ve had in a long time…and I go back over 40 yrs of skiing in the region. Insanely great weather, fun company, good “tude” with everyone in Hawaiian party mood. Timberline had virtually every slope and 1000’ of vertical open with good coverage, hard and fast in the AM, soft and forgiving in the PM. Saturday included pig roast for lunch, at night they had a good crowd for live Hawaiian music, bonfire, and set off fireworks over the mtn while an awesome torchlight parade of about 80+ skiers came down the mtn. First time for me, from what I can see this is the best spring ski festival in the region and it will be hard to pass it up from now on, plus prices really nice for lifts and lodging, esp at nearby Canaan Valley Lodge. Sunday crowds very light, but enough patrons for some fun contests – costumes, bumps, boarder cross, etc. Our gang consisted of about 15 or more different folks from Epicski and DCSki circles. Sunday was like our own private Idaho err West Virginia. Next year: be there or be square. It wasn't Almost Heaven, it Was Heaven!
