cross country skiing


Cross Country skiing and snowshoeing are fun, easy to learn, inexpensive, and healthy ways to spend some of your free winter time. Since '79 we have taken pride in our wholesome natural foods cafe, unique laid-back atmosphere, curvy exciting trails, and backcountry ski specialty shop. Our day lodge provides close access to some of West Virginia's most treasured high country.

Located in a snowy corner of the Cabin Mountain range of West Virginia's High Alleghenies, we pick up much of our 160" annual snowfall off the Great Lakes whenever strong northwesterly winds drop out of Canada. Originally built as the Weiss Knob Ski Area in 1959, Bob and Anita Barton operated 4 rope tows and had snow making here. We now maintain over 60 km of trails ranging from 3220 - 4463 ft. Over 1,200 vertical feet to cross country up and over. Winter Season Web Cams The WG Movie
