Reviews for Timberline Mountain
A ski resort's overall star rating displayed here is not calculated based on a simple average but takes several factors, including the age of a review, into account.
Please visit their website for updated information. timberlinemountain.com Located in the Monongahela National Forest along with Canaan Valley and Snowshoe. Timberline went bankrupt and was not open last year. Purchased by Perfect North Slopes from Indiana. 2 new lifts, tremendous snowmaking upgrades. Restored lodge! Looks like all new rental equipment. Reminds me of skiing in New England. I live 30 minutes from Liberty and Whitetail and much prefer skiing in WV.... Full Review
Also. Check out Whitegrass while you're down here.... Full Review
Outstanding place. Lines can get a little longer than normal as the lifties are not forcing people to fill up the chairs because of COVID. Grooming has been very spot on. Canaan Valley has been getting a goooood amount of snow this year. Bring your own beer and have a cold one right next to the lift being that you can park basically right there.... Full Review
First, On the Snow data is often absurd and totally erroneous. Said this area was open 97 days last year and in fact it was CLOSED. Duh. Second, you show zero recent snowfall. As of mid day 2/1/2021 they had 15" of new snow. You people are utterly useless. Third, this GREAT newly renovated ski area has a 6 person high speed chair to the top that averages under 3 people in each chair. Completely unmanaged largest single investment in WV ski history. There is no operator either limiting people per chair NOR trying to keep chairs mostly filled. Staggering stupidity. Blaming this circumstance on Covid 19 is simply FALSE. Frankly a lie. Sad to see them start this way. Unjustifiable big long lift lines.

Pros: Reasonable Tickets. A new FAST lift with decently short lines for a Sunday. Some of the best groomers I've ever been on. Some nice steep stuff! I parked basically at the lift with my pass already loaded for the scanner, no need to go in to the lodge (which is completely remodeled) Very friendly (yet very stern about facial coverings) staff. I'll mention the snow again, master groomer work, and plenty of snow, outstanding conditions.
Cons: People will hear about it......... Full Review
Once Timberline re-opened I had to see for myself how the changes were coming. New ownership has me blown away. You can now get to the top from the base in 3 minutes, and granted, there was fresh 3-4 in of natural snow, bump runs were not like thudding through mashed potatoes. And there was enough snow for tree skiing. The ticket cost up front seems high, but midweek the cost includes 15 bucks for food and drink on the mountain.
Good intermediate terrain, apres ski is mostly found in Davis, WV. There's no onsite resort village like Snowshoe (then again, you don't get the shoe crowds and $100 lift tickets)... Full Review
New management has added 6 man high speed chair. At over 4,200 elevation snow is fairly reliable. Not a fancy place, but great for serious skiers. Lots of steep terrain.... Full Review
Looks like things are on the up. Timberline was purchased by Perfect North Slopes out of Indiana with the intent of rehabbing the slopes and reopening for the 2020-2021 season. Perfect North is a very well ran Resort wit top of the industry snowmaking and management. A bright future is ahead!!!... Full Review
Timberline has had a disaster of a year -- weather, rain, financial mess, water system shut down, can't pay bills, etc. Their website said Thurs 28 Feb they would determine operation by Mon 25 Feb after "evaluating the mountain." It took several days beyond 25 Feb before they posted "Closed for the season."
I really hope some major ski corp buys them out, puts in a high speed lift, remodels or replaces the base lodge and restores the place. Tough times.I wish them well !... Full Review
Just falling apart, cannot get the mountain open. Ownership is absent, management isn't doing anything valuable. They just don't make snow. Lift is being limped along instead of replaced, breaks regularly. Really wish someone else would operate this resort, it's an easy drive from DC/MD/PA... Full Review
