In an effort to help trail users know trail conditions before driving to the trail head, we’ve created a new “Trail Conditions” page on our website. Simply click on “Trail Conditions” under “Trails” at the top of our website or go to wmmba.org/trail-conditions/. If the trail is green you’re good to go, if it’s red stay home. We will especially be updating these during the spring thaw when trails are at their most vulnerable.

Also Cannonsburg Ski Area has trimmed a wide path seperate from the singletrack trails so they can groom for fatbikes. A trail pass will be $5, everyone pays, fatbike or mtb, while they keep it groomed. Most likley mid-December to March. Important-no free riding in the winter at the Ski Area anymore.
