See the countryside like never before.

Experience the natural beauty of West Virginia on the cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails at Canaan Valley Resort. Considered winter wonderland at its best, our location in the Allegheny Mountains offers 30 kilometers of marked and un-groomed trails. 

Roam our acres of peaceful, wide open space with nothing but nature around you. All of our cross-country trails are neutral snow dependent with no trail fees. 

Rent snowshoes or cross-country skis for $20, and we have plenty of other rental equipment available.

  • XC Ski Center is currently closed due to lack of natural snow.  We will update with hours of operation when the center is open.
