Welcome to White Grass, a cross-country skiers haven. Located in Canaan Valley, where so many attractions of Appalachia are combined, this venue offers 60 kilometers of cross-country skiiing trails and a small lodge to keep warm. A delicious lunch menu of homemade cookies and vegetarian options are available too. Check out the daily report to find the most current conditions.

IMG_8629I was new to the sport and expected to fall more often than I did on my first try. It’s amazing to be able to climb a hill in skis. As an avid hiker, this was a wonderful way to enjoy the winter forest doing what I enjoy most. There are plenty of places to spend the night. Places nearby at Timberline,  The Purple Fiddle, or The Bright Morning Inn to name a few.
