Timberline Four Seasons Ski Getaways
Within a three to four drive from several major metropolitan areas on the East coast is perhaps the best-kept secret in Southeastern skiing. Timberline Four Seasons Resort, nestled in a picturesque valley high in the Allegheny Mountains, is located 10 miles south of Davis, West Virginia. With a peak elevation of over 4,000 feet, Timberline receives an average yearly snowfall of 150 inches. When the snow gods are not smiling snowmakers provide plenty of white stuff on 100% of the trails, ensuring that guests enjoy their visit to Herz Mountain. Three lifts access a total of 37 trails, slopes, and glades covering 100 acres with 1,000 feet vertical, offering plenty of terrain for the beginners, cruisers and advanced skiers alike.
While the true beginners learn how to ski with well-trained and knowledgeable instructors on the beginner's slope, Woods Hole, the more adventurous beginners can try Salamander. A 2+-mile green cruising trail, Salamander is probably the best-known trail on Herz Mountain. Starting at the top, it offers spectacular views of the valley while meandering down the eastern side of the mountain, not stopping until you reach the lifts again. Intermediate skiers will find Dew Drop and the newest trail, Twister, to be challenging blue terrain while again providing breathtaking views stretching for miles. Timberline Four Seasons Resort also caters to the advanced skier and snowboarder. Silver Streak, Off The Wall, The Drop and two terrain parks all provide ample opportunities for the adrenalin junkies to get their fix of moguls, jumps and, challenging runs during their time on Herz Mountain. Don't forget the glades where the natural snow stays between the trees for the best to test their skills. There is also a plethora of cross country and backcountry trails for the Nordic skier and snowshoer. Our backcountry trails connect with White Grass Outdoor Nordic Center and trails located in the Dolly Sods Wilderness Area of the Monongahela National Forest and Canaan Valley Wildlife Refuge.
