Cross-country skiing may seem so…Nordic…but the South has its own hub of skinny-ski activity. White Grass Touring Center is nestled inside Canaan Valley, West Virginia, a high-elevation dale that received 250 inches of snow last winter. Even more surprising? You don’t have to be an Olympic athlete to enjoy this low-key adventure. One lesson from a White Grass pro will have you gliding along gentle forest roads and snow-covered meadows with ease. White Grass maintains 31 miles of trails. Pack a lunch and ski from warming hut to warming hut; they’re often stocked with chocolate and whiskey.
