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.

Whenever strong northwesterly winds drop out of Canada and across the Great Lakes, we whiten up with 160" of fluff. Originally built as the Weiss Knob Ski Area in 1959, we now maintain over 60 km of trails ranging from 3220 - 4463 ft. Over 1,200 vertical feet to cross country up and over. Web Cams The WG Movie
