"This is a special time for Canaan Valley, as we reflect on where we started and how far we've come," said Troy Cardwell, Canaan's GM. "Our goal remains, and has always been, to create an environment of fun and relaxation for the entire family." To celebrate the anniversary, Canaan Valley will throw a birthday party and offer promotions throughout the season. The Celebration Weekend is Dec. 8 to 10 and includes games, music, ski and snowboard events, and discounts such as $35 lodging, $35 lift ticket/ski rental combinations and 35-cent food and beverages. Children of guests staying at the Canaan Valley Lodge will stay, eat and ski for free throughout the season.
