Timberline Resort was not open for the 2019-2020 winter season, but plans to re-open for the 2020-2021 winter season under new ownership. Check out DCSki’s in-depth report on The Renaissance of Timberline to learn more about Timberline’s future. Following several years of turmoil, Timberline filed for bankruptcy in 2019 and was placed on the auction block. On November 20, 2019, Timberline was purchased at auction by Indiana-based Perfect North Slopes, which aims to re-open Timberline for the 2020-2021 winter season. The new ownership has announced plans to install two new lifts at Timberline during the summer of 2020. Stay tuned to DCSki for the latest details.

With its peak at 4,268 feet, West Virginia’s Timberline ski area attracts plenty of natural snow and keeps it around for a lengthy season. Over 150 inches of natural snow fall on Timberline’s 36 slopes and trails, and the resort adds to that with snowmaking.

Timberline is located two miles from the Canaan Valley ski area, but offers more advanced terrain than its sibling. Steeps and bumps can be found throughout the resort’s trails, as well as some gladed skiing. Beginner terrain is also available, although beginners may feel more comfortable at Canaan Valley. The lengthy 2-mile long Salamander run at Timberline offers an easy-going pitch that is good for beginners.
