With its peak at 4,268 feet, West Virginia's Timberline ski area attracts plenty of natural snow and keeps it around for a lengthy season. Over 200 inches of natural snow fall on Timberline's 36 slopes and trails, and the resort adds to that with snowmaking.
Timberline is located two miles from the Canaan Valley ski area, but offers more advanced terrain than its sibling. Steeps and bumps can be found throughout the resort's trails, as well as some gladed skiing. Beginner terrain is also available. The lengthy 2-mile long Salamander run at Timberline offers an easy-going pitch that is good for beginners.
For snowboarders, Timberline has two terrain parks which can have features such as thirty, forty, and fifty foot jumps. Timberline sponsors numerous racing events each season, such as USASA Boardercrosses, skier crosses, USASA slopestyle, and Timberline Big Air and Slopestyle competitions.
