Vacation: Ski Weekend in West Virginia

We took a break from house projects this weekend to go skiing in Canaan Valley, West Virginia at the Timberline Four Seasons Resort. I skied for the first time in nearly 12 years and my daughter Elizabeth went for the first time.  Fortunately we got 8" of fresh powder which is unbelievable considering that they had almost no fresh snow before this weekend. Unfortunately it was below zero with the windchill!  Yikes. The temps made me remember why I don't ski much anymore!

But, we stayed at this fantastic house with 3 other families. It was HUGE, beautifully decorated, and had great views. I took very few pictures inside the house but there are loads in their virtual tour (along with rental info) here.

Obviously there was more white than green when we were there!

Here's my little skier. Can't wait to take her out skiing again!

To prove I actually skied, we took these pictures with my wonderful friends and ski partners (Handy Hubby does not ski!).

I'm happy to report that I remembered how to ski. I have never skied on shaped (parabolic) skis and wow they make skiing sooooo much easier!  If you have been thinking about skiing again after a long time away from it, go for it. You might be surprised.

Since we got home on Sunday afternoon and we've been doing laundry ever since!

Have you skied this winter? Any great weekends away? Any mid-Atlantic ski areas that we should check out?
