    Timberline Davis WV OPEN AGAIN

    Hello everyone, this is my first post on MTBR. I live, work, ski and ride in a great area for MTB. Many of you may know of the event history at Timberline and Davis WV. There are probably folks on this forum who rode in one of the many events. Any 24 Hours of Canaan vets out there?

    I will start a blog (soon) on MTBR outlining what is happening now at Timberline Resort and when it will open this year for lift service riding. There will be an invitational to start the season, a race series and an end of season WVMBA event in late September. Till then I want to let people know that this privately owned ski resort is back in the game with some of the best DH trails I have ever seen. There is nothing like it, the terrain is HUGE! Natural wall rides, drops, DH tight bermed roads and glade mountain biking! What is that? Open woods with dozens of line choices, tree skiing on your MTB!

    ALSO - Work is in progress for a pump track, and a four cross.

    Let me know what you think. JR

    Sounds great. TL is only an hour and a half from here. It's got great skiing, I'd imagine the biking is just as good. Really cool terrain. I'd definitely come down and check it out this Summer.

    One question: Will Willy be playing 24/7 in the Summer too? LMAO

    Can't wait to check it out.

    I'll never smoke weed with Willy again . . .

    Every day that I work on the trails more options show themselves. Timberline has so much to offer. We are STOKED to get it going.

    This place (Timberline) will be fun. Yes you are close, within 1 1/2 hours easy. Go north to Elkins to Harmon to Canaan Valley and Timberline. The drive will be worth it, I know.

    Looks like a pretty sweet time. I am not going to be disapointed at all if my Memorial Weekend plans fall through and I can make it up. Hopefully a trip to the Valley will be in store for me here soon....

    Ok, here are some more. The Cannondale Moto provided by Blackwater Bikes (thanks Roger)- climbed up some steep terrain with Jason on it. He is strong but that bike is good for going up and down.

    I would like to see some of the bigger features mentioned like "Natural wall rides, drops, DH tight bermed roads and glade mountain biking!"

    So far, you have illustrated the kind of terrain I can find on regular old local trails.
