About Timberline Mountain

Previously known as Timberline Four Season Resort, Timberline Mountain is located at 254 Four Seasons Drive in Davis, West Virginia. It is located along the higher range of the Alleghany Mountainsa. The 4268-foot summit offers amazing views.

The resort is well known for wide slopes and varied terrain. It is also home to the southeast’s longest ski slope, Salamander. This is an easy two-mile beginner trail that winds down the mountain. There are plenty of intermediate trails as well. For the more advanced skier, there is dedicated tree skiing.

Recent Upgrades

A lot of exciting things have been happening at Timberline. Perfect North Slopes made $10-million of capital improvements. Most notable, are two new Doppelmayr chair lifts. One of which is a six person lift – the first in West Virginia – that can make it to the top of the mountain in just over four minutes. Additionally, they installed a new surface lift on a new beginners’ slope.

  • Face coverings must be worn in any indoor space.
  • Face coverings are also required outside if you cannot remain 6 feet apart from others (waiting in lines, loading on/off the lift, etc.). They must also be worn while tubing.
  • The lodge is limited to 50% capacity.
  • Be sure you purchase lift tickets or make reservations for tubing and lessons as soon as you can. Holiday time periods may sell out.

Of course all of this is subject to change as the season goes on. You can visit Wisp’s guidelines page for full details and the latest updates.
