Full review

Just returned from a two day stent. Probably the best snow I have skied at Timberline in 10+ years. Timberline does depend on natural snow but, when it does snow and all the terrian is open, it is probably one of the better places to ski in the mid-atlantic/southeast. Some decent steeps, glades, great groomers, and stuff for beginners. The mountain has a very appalachian feel (not commercialized) with very nice people, decent prices, and beautiful views of some of the high country in the Allegheny mountains. The bar at the lodge sells great local microbrews and provided live music in the evening. I highly recommend Timberline for someone living in the east coast/ mid atlantic region.
