Latest Most Wanted MugshotThe Eastern Continental Divide, Mt. Porte Crayon, and the Roaring Plains: The highest hump about 4 miles south of here is the summit of Mt. Porte Crayon. At 4,770 feet elevation, it is the highest elevation on the Eastern Continental Divide in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. It’s name honors one of the first white explorers who documented his visits to the area in the mid-and-late 1800’s.The flat topped ridge to the left of the summit hump is the Roaring Plains, named for the fierce winds that frequent the high plateau. This wilderness area contains 5.5 square miles above 4,500 feet.The Valley of Red Creek below is nearly 3,000 feet below the top of Mt. Porte Crayon. Red creek’s waters flow into the Ohio and then Mississippi Rivers. Precipitation falling on the east side of the Eastern Continental Divide flows into the Potomac River and the Atlantic Ocean. sent by Bob Leffler (see overlook area south of Canaan Valley)                                                                                                                                                                                                                The pure spirit of skiing and the good life is alive and well and living at White Grass. I know of no other place where skiers gather and get closer to that wonderful spiritual aspect of skiing and fellowship. That special place in all nords that makes us want to go outside put on our skis and have fun. White Grass is quite simply my favorite ski area in North America.

Had an incredible time. Meeting Chip was an Adventure in itself. Amazing staff. Such a beautiful place. Can’t wait to go back.
