Canaan Valley Resort opens tubing, skating area

November 23, 2018

DAVIS, W.Va. — Canaan Valley Resort State Park is starting the winter season early this year by opening its tubing and ice skating areas starting on Thanksgiving, Thursday, Nov. 22, and running into the weekend through Sunday, Nov. 25.

“We’re excited to be opening our snow park for a weekend of Thanksgiving family fun,” said Steve Drumheller, general manager at Canaan Valley Resort. “After a day of tubing and skating, we invite our guests to spend the night at our beautiful lodge. It’s a great place to relax for a few days during the holiday break, enjoy a delicious meal and reconnect with loved ones.”

The resort’s 1,200 feet long tube run is the longest in the Mid-Atlantic and features a “magic carpet” lift that zips riders back to the top of the hill.

The tubing park will be open from 2-4 p.m., 4:30-6:30 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 23 and Saturday, Nov. 24; and 8-10 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 25.

The outdoor covered skating rink will be open each day from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. After the last session on Nov. 25, the tubing and skating park will be open on weekends until the opening of Canaan Valley Resort’s ski areas in mid-December.

Canaan Valley’s high elevation in the Allegheny Mountain makes a perfect climate for snow sports. The resort, which has 160 rooms and 23 cabins, offers many seasonal and family-friendly activities and dining options. To learn more, visit www.canaanresort.com or call 304-866-4121.
