EASTERN SKIING

great Eastern & local skiing

Day and weekend trips to local ski areas such as Liberty, Whitetail, Roundtop, Canaan Valley, TimberlineSnowshoe, and Seven Springs

Eastern Skiers, will SCWDC run one-day trips to Whitetail, Liberty and Roundtop in 2021?

Answer: As of now, we don't know. Vail Resorts purchased these properties this Spring, and the individual web sites don't provide specifics
about opening dates or COVID-specific guidance. Please check the SCWDC web site in September or October.

The SCWDC Ski School offers free lessons at selected events.  

The 2021 Canaan Valley and Sunday River trips are definite, we've already made deposits for these.  

Also, the Blue Ridge Ski Council has planned a "Winterfest" 2021 trip to Jay Peak, Vermont and SCWDC is planning to participate.

SPE (Ski Performance Enhancement) – You can fine tune your ski/board techniques with the assistance of our own club instructors, so you can improve your skills as part of the trip!

PYOT – Provide your own transportation trips are closer to the DC area and easier to get to by your own car or carpooling, and it reduces the price of the trip.
