“West Virginia is the only US state that falls entirely within the vast Appalachian mountain range.” This makes for wondrous views and great hiking trips as well as excellent skiing opportunities. The 4,000ft plus peaks are why West Virginia is heaven for outdoor overs year-round. If you love skiing and want to hit the mountain and enjoy the fresh powder check out some of the best resorts WV has to offer.

Snowshoe Mountain.

Visit Snowshoe and its 244 acres of glorious terrain. Located in the Allegheny Mountains this beautiful resort lies at the highest point of Cheat Mountain. 60 trails offer different terrains for various skill levels. You can enjoy the slopes during the day and a plethora of entertainment at night. The village has awesome restaurants, bars and accommodation. Plus, other recreational opportunities like snowmobile tours, sleigh rides and tubing!

Cannan Valley

For family-friendly fun hit the Monongahela National Forest and the Cannan Valley resort.
