Airboarding – A New Winter Sport

Canaan Valley Resort is the first resort in the country to create a dedicated sledding area and terrain park for Airboards and the sixth resort in the country – and first in the Mid-Atlantic - to introduce Airboards to their slopes. The Airboard is a high-tech twist on traditional winter sledding. Riding an Airboard is similar to riding a bodyboard in the ocean. The Airboard is inflatable and has grooves on the underside that allow riders to make sharp turns and stop quickly in the snow. Canaan Valley separates airboarders from skiers and snowboarders with snow fencing, providing acres of terrain – from the mid-station down. Read more about Airboarding
