1st Annual “Tour de Canaan”, February 2013

On February 17, 2013, a group of seven intrepid adventurers set off on an epic Shakletonian circumnavigation of Canaan Valley. We started in the NW rim of the valley at Canaan Heights at 8am, skied Canaan Loop Road and the Allegheny Trail to Canaan Valley State Park, then to Canaan Valley Ski Hill, rode the lift to the Pipeline and skied across to Bald Knob, skied down to Whitegrass Lodge, and finally skied north to the Timberline Lodge. Three of us finished the 17 mile route, arriving at 6:30pm!  A map of the route is below.

    I am already shopping for new boots so as to push to the finish next year. A special thanks to Mr. Shackleton for his outstanding leadership and to the cinematographer for great shooting (though he missed Rocky in snow to his neck!). Best,

    We just returned from a stay in your home for our second year in a row. While we love your home, its location and all of its amenities, we found it to be less than clean and felt you should be made aware. I plan on emailing MountainTop to share my concerns with them as I assume it is their responsibility to make sure that your home is in good shape for each of your guests.

    In a nutshell, the floors were filthy as evidenced by my children’s socks, the coffee maker had water and mold growing inside of it from the last renters and there were mice in the laundry room/kitchen. Overall the house just did not have that walk in appeal to it as it did our first stay in 2012.

    I’m not sure you will get this note…but I hope that you do as I think your property manager is doing you a disservice.
