Canaan Valley, West Virginia

I am taking a quick break from the Norway entries - will be back tomorrow with more! (And don't worry about the test!) This weekend I went to Canaan Valley, West Virginia, for some skiing. It is about four hours west of DC and they usually get a lot of snow. They have had lots of snow all winter, but last week it rained away!! So we had very little snow until Sunday, when it started snowing - and didn't really stop until Tuesday morning. We ended up having to stay until Tuesday morning instead of leaving Monday afternoon, simply because there was too much snow.

We did downhill skiing Saturday (awful conditions!) and Monday (amazing conditions!) at Timberline Ski Resort, and attempted cross country at White Grass on Sunday (not much snow, so not much skiing. But it did rekindle my interest in cross country skiing; it was fun! It was also cheap!) I'd like to go back when conditions are good.

Here are some photos from early this morning as we were leaving:

I hope you get to go back when conditions are better and you will have a great skiing experience.

I am such a winter wimp... but snow does make a pretty picture!

Ah, West Virginia, something about that state I love.
Your photos look good.
I hate it when this happens, there is so much snow, and then you decide to go skiing, and it decides to rain away. Not cool.
I am glad snow on Sunday saved the week though.

Beautiful photos.


Lovely photos, Chiocciola! I haven't been out cross-country skiing once this year, and conditions are apparently great. Shame on me!

I hope you had a great weekend.
