New Ski Area map and trails

tagged as Blog,Cannonsburg Ski Area Trail,Trails

OK-here is an updated map of the Cannonsburg Ski Area since we re-signed the entire trail today! The Triple East and West are now one-way traffic based on days of the week, similar to Merrell. The days are listed on this map and also with signage on the trail junctions. We hope we improved the markings to keep first timers and the seldom users on course by marking the main loop in white arrows with all the optional loops in different colors. Creek Trail has brown arrows, the Connector has blue arrows, the Triple East and West have red arrows and Bill’s Hill is marked with yellow arrows. All of these options can be bypassed as most of you know just take all the white arrow options. Take all the options and it is now 9 miles long!

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.

January 2014 WMMBA Member Meeting and Pre-ride!

We have a great meeting shaping up for this months WMMBA member meeting!

We will be doing the “winter riding” edition with a focus on the fatty!  That’s of course, the fat-bike!  Fat-bikes went from being a “what the heck is that” type thing to one of the fastest selling type of bikes out there.  We’ll have some of the folks that have been riding, selling and working on these smile inducing contraptions, sharing their experiences and wisdom and telling why they love their fatty!

We’ll also have some tips on ways to keep fit during the winter months (that some call the off season) and ideas on how to get you ready for spring/summer race season.

We’ll tell you what the WMMBA has up their sleeve this year, new trails, rides, races and events.

Plus, we will be doing a pre-meeting fat-bike ride on the brand new Cannonsburg groomed Fat-bike/XC ski trails!  Ride time will be around 5:30PM (there is a small fee to ride the new trails).

Don’t own a fat-bike yet?  No problem, we’ve asked several of our local shops to bring some of their finest two wheeled steeds for you to try out!

Cannonsburg will have some tasty food and drink specials for your after ride re-fueling!

So speed the word and see you there!
