Canaan ski resort opens tube park to public today
DAVIS, W.Va. -- It's grand opening day for the new tube park at Canaan Valley Resort State Park in Davis.
Resort officials will hold a ceremony this afternoon to celebrate the debut of a 16-lane hill with a down slope of 1,200 feet.
The West Virginia Division of Natural Resources says the tube park also features a 1,000-square-foot warming station with restrooms, a fireplace, lounges, viewing area and an outside plaza with a fire ring.
Boardwalk conveyers make getting back to the top of the hill an easy ride.
Also new to the resort this year are horse-drawn sleigh rides, which can accommodate five to eight people.
