Regional Attraction located in Tucker County, West Virginia:
When a fresh quilt of snow covers the Appalachians, there’s no better place to be than at White Grass Ski Touring Center. Deemed as the most exciting cross-country ski experience on the East, White Grass has 60km of trails that are groomed and maintained. Backcountry and adventure skiers can take advantage of the 1,200 vertical feet of slopes and glades. White Grass was originally built as an alpine ski area in 1959 and has been doing cross-country skiing since 1979, which makes it one of the oldest cross-country ski areas in the United States. Enticed yet? White Grass Touring Center is situated smack dab in the middle of Canaan Valley Ski Resort and Timberline Mountain.
Offering lessons every day at any time you need makes it even easier to learn. Short simple mini lessons, 1 hour with lots of personal help, or request downhill control. One of the keys is to simply flex your ankles like most sports and dancing. The trail map has a section on ski technique that nobody reads.
XC exploration is fun at our neighboring Canaan Valley and Blackwater Falls state parks. XC skiers can also purchase one-way lift tickets at Canaan Valley ski resort and come over the top to White Grass, mostly all downhill.
