Along with the beauty of our state, you'll have to drive our highways....speed limit - 70 mph on Interstates, 55 mph otherwise.....roads are great, though.....

X2.. Nothing beats the WVU tailgating. It's hard to beat driving in my jeep with the top down traveling the country roads to Seneca Rocks, Canaan Valley, Blackwater falls, Dolly Sods. Also the winters at those places, the snow looks beautiful in the mountains.

Skiing is another option in the Mtn. State this time of year. Snowshoe, Cannan Valley, and Timberline Resort are all excellent East Coast skiing options. Having personally worked at two of these 4 season resorts and been skiing at all three for years, I would have to say that "night skiing at Timberline is my favorite. The slopes arent too crowded and well light plus you get a lower rate for skiing at night. The only downside is that night skiing is only offered on certain days of the week. check out Timberlines web page for details.

I live in Montana now and to be honest that part of WV is less developed the Western Montana.
Hey im from Elkins and have to say that you are correct. If you like the outdoors there is really an unlimited amount of possiblities starting from here. Bear Rocks in Dolly Sods is an amazing place. espically when you see the sign that says leave all unexploded ordiance alone...the Rocks were used as a target field in WWI (i think) for artillary and such. I go there to pic blueberries in the early fall and have yet to find anything of the sort.
