Snow Allows Ski Resorts to Extend Seasons

Earlier this week Snowshoe announced it would extend its ski season and open up on the first weekend of April after closing March 30th as planned. Canaan Valley has also announced it will extend the season because of the abundance of snow. West Virginia State Parks district administrator Paul Redford said Thursday that Canaan has received more than 130 inches of snow this winter, and the resort will extend its season to March 23rd. That applies to downhill slopes, beginners ski area, tubing park and ice skating area.
