Cross Country skiing and snowshoeing are fun, easy to learn, inexpensive, and healthy ways to spend some of your free winter time. Since '79 we have taken pride in our wholesome natural foods cafe, unique laid-back atmosphere, curvy exciting trails, and backcountry ski specialty shop. Our day lodge provides close access to some of West Virginia's most treasured high country.

Ten kilometers of trails are adjacent to Elk River Inn & Cabins and border the national forest. We groom the trails around the center with a snowmobile when possible, no skate grooming is available. An additional 25 kilometers of trails are located off the Highland Scenic Highway (WV-150), which is not plowed in winter. We suggest stopping by Elk River to get current trail conditions and a map of the area. There is no cell service available on trails. Snowshoeing trails start at the Inn and the Scenic Highway. Trails range in elevation from 2730' to 4750'. Average snowfall is 150-200" annually.
