With the large snowmaking window both CV and TL should be laying down considerable snow!  Status? Opening dates? Trails?

visual sightings?

Canaan has never wavered from their opening on the 14th

 

T-line said it would be the 7th but has now moved theirs to the 14th  (according to their Facebook page)

 

not sure about the forecast middle of next week till then, but barring a warmup they both should have good conditions

Canaan Valley Resort posted this update a few days ago.  Tubing and ice skating are already open during weekends and will be open full-time for the season beginning December 15 when the ski slopes open.  Canaan Valley Resort says they plan to have 10 slopes ready to go for opening day, including Timber Trail.

Timberline has started making snow and states that their current projected opening date is December 14.

Good video update from CVR today. Looks like snowmaking is going great there.

I work at Canaan Ski School.  If things go well they will have several trails from the top open on the 15.  I live at the base of Timberline and for the life of me cannot tell.  Their snowmaking is sporatic as are the lift issues they are working to correct. They may be open on the 14th if inspections are completed by that time.  The boil water notice is still in effect and may not be lifted before opening date so bring your own water or check to see if any announcements are made referencing that. Word on the notice is that it’s precautionary and since we are using the water for everything except drinking and haven’t died yet, you should be fine if you use one of the affected properties in the valley.   We had 6” of natural yesterday and may have that much again tonight with lake effects.  If in doubt go to White Grass.  Chip would love it.

Reported elsewhere. That may be optimistic. Some more “unconfirmed rumors” from the T-Line mafia:

Heard about it first from some banned posters here. There used to be a lot of positives to say about T-Line. There has been pretty much nothing good to say in the past few years - coming from a decade long defender of the place. 

And there are other investigations out there.

Adios.

Sounds like they should have used some of that recapitalization money they got to pay their taxes.  Really stupid to go to jail for such a low amount.

There was no recapitalization money.

Their mountain/area operations are smaller this year than ever before. 

And per the psc documents, there are *allegations* of improper transfers from utility to affiliates on the order of six figures. So, tip of iceberg.

This really is heart breaking. I’ve been going there since I was in high school, which is in excess of 30 years. It is by far my favorite “local” hill. The place was never over crowded like Snowshoe of 7S can be, and a great vertical for the region it’s in.

Skiings looks decent at CVR. They’re still skiing from the top for the time being, lots of rain this evening. 

Timberline plans to open tomorrow with very limited trails. BWN lifted. 

And a short plea for help. If you weren’t aware, the J1 folks that came up from South America to work at Timberline are transitioning out of the Valley (~5 folks) and about 15 folks are transitioning from Timberline to CVR (speculations on why abound). Many are in need of housing and/or food currently and some needs may persist through the winter season. If you are able to help out please reach out via PM and I will get you in contact with those coordinating the effort to help these kids out. They have also established an account at a local bank to help feed them while they transition into their new jobs.

Wow David, I’m in NC and wish I could help but THANKS for bringing those kids needs up, anyone who is in a position to help them out would be doing something special

The people of Tucker County have really done some amazing things over the past few days for these kids. Kudos to CVR for interviewing and hiring all of them that wanted to stay in the Valley! It’s sad that it had to come to something like this but great to see there are still some good people out there.

This was truly a new low for a gang that has gone pretty low before.  But showed how great the CV community is!

For those still keeping score. 

Timberline extended their season passes from this year through next year. What good is that going to do?? 

Per their Facebook, they’ve officially failed their 2nd inspection by the health department due to persist living creatures of some sort.
