Canaan Valley Passes are $450 at the preseason rates.  They were $300 last season; a substantial increase.  Way overpriced considering it takes them two months to open 3 trails from the top and they offer a minimal season.

true, but then twice a year they'll get a foot of snow and open the entire mountian for one day, and you get pipeline access.  it's magical :-)

Maybe they are trying to run the business backwards- raise prices and then improve the product?

There are some other issues coming into play that will be addressed soon. Don't expect that price to stick.

For DCSki forum folks the only announcement that would be truly appreciated would be a new vendor/management company.  Or a new contract that actually incentivizes and/or allocates money to the ski area.

It will be close to your suggestion but not a change as you suggest.  There's a contract in existence so that's not possible.

I hope it involves more snow making on "natural" trails... or just more snow making!

Are they looking at making a big announcement in regards to upgrades (lifts, snowmaking,etc.) or that they have contracted a new ops team to run the show? I wonder if they asked the Perfects to run their mountain for them....

There will be a change in personnel on mountain. The issues that confronted the resort last season will hopefully be behind them but that is dependent on the state's commitment to upgrades which are long overdue.  More announcements as things develop. If this sounds like I'm side stepping, it is.   I haven't seen or heard anything definitive but expect it to come soon to sooth the curious.

 I don't think this is side steeping. It is better to see the truth when it comes out rather than speculate on things that may not be realistic; especially, from this group. Love this mountain but it is not living up to its potential. 

It is sometimes fun to speculate though!

The meadows are really nice on a powder day.  Of course, they are rarely open.  😉
