White Grass Ski Touring Center

Davis, WV

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.
Located in a snowy corner of the Cabin Mountain range of West Virginia's High Alleghenies, we pick up much of our 160" annual snowfall off the Great Lakes whenever strong northwesterly winds drop out of Canada. Originally built as the Weiss Knob Ski Area in 1959, Bob and Anita Barton operated 4 rope tows and had snow making here. We now maintain 50 km of trails -- all ranging from 3200 ft to 4400 ft. Over 1,200 vertical feet to cross country up and over!

Open December – March to feed hungry skiers, White Grass Cafe serves homemade hearty soups,  sandwiches, cookies, cakes and pies for lunch and offers international specialties from around the world for dinner. The cuisine has produced two popular cookbooks that complement this varied and highly popular winter cafe.
