get more from BRO

We already know that Canaan Valley boasts some of the best skiing in the Mid-Atlantic, but it’s also home to a treasure trove of natural history and beauty. Learn from the best this Sunday, February 16, at White Grass Touring Center in Canaan Valley with WG operator and celebrated outdoorsman Chip Chase.  White Grass

Chip Chase opened the White Grass Ski touring Center in 1981, which since then has thrived as an ideal cross-country and telemark skiing destination. Chase, an avid skier himself, has become an expert on the area over the years, and has plenty of interesting information to share about the unique history of the valley. On this tour, you’ll strap on a pair of snowshoes (provided for free) to take a trip through White Grass while you soak up some skills, knowledge, and beautiful sights.

Participants will also get to spend time in the Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge property, which provides safe habitats for local animals, including endangered species, and helps to promote conservation work in the valley. Together with the Fish and Wildlife Service, Chip and his partners have made White Grass a special place for both animals and people alike.

The tour will begin at 10 AM on Sunday morning, and will lead you along White Grass cross-country trails, and through the Refuge area. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to dive into Chip’s vat of knowledge – you won’t find a better guide to Canaan!
