Snow tubing or sledding in Berkeley Springs in Jan?

Hi,

We're thinking about renting a house near Berkeley Springs for New Years, and are wondering if there's somewhere nearby for snow tubing. Also, what's the liklihood of snow that time of year?

Thanks,

Hmmm, don't know but this may help. I'm not real familiar with the area, hope someone hops on who is better informed. In the meantime:

Official website says "Cross country skiing is a popular sport on the mountain trails of Cacapon State Park" .... http://www.berkeleysprings.com/

You may try emailing Cacapon and asking about tubing... http://www.cacaponresort.com/ and http://www.cacaponresort.com/events.htm

Also see www.wvwintersports.com/tubing/index.aspx

or see http://www.wvwintersports.com/

But the only places I see for tubing are the ski resorts. Also, Canaan, Snowshoe, and Winterplace have lifts just for tubing.

Likelihood of snow:

Take a look at www.ncdc.noaa.gov/ussc/USSCAppController…

or http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/ussc/

Click on State Snow...

Click on WV

Click on Station Snow Climotology

Under Station, Click Berkeley Springs
