thumb_IMGP0417Just to let you know, I’m a sportbike rider through and through, but for some reason I was on my way to Snowshoe Mountain in Snowshoe, West Virginia to learn skiing for the first time. Now being that I’ve never stepped foot on any type of ski, I needed a lot of assistance from start to finish. Task one; I had to find rental gear. We stopped by Snow-Creek Mountain Sports, a subsidiary of Ski Barn, to pick up what I would need for the weekend.

You have to be able to afford to go. Not only is the skiing affordable at Canaan, but so is the lodging, food, and beverage. Our service staff is geared around families, taking care of and knowing what they need.”




Sprawled out atop Cheat Mountain in the Monongahela National Forest is the year-round resort, Snowshoe Mountain. Located in Pocahontas County, West Virginia, the snowshoe offers 60 slopes and trails with 14 ski lifts, including: 3 high-speed detachable quads, two handle-tows, and two “Magic Carpets.”
