Chapman Technical Group led a team of specialists in the development of a wide range of improvements at the ski area of Canaan Valley Resort State Park.

A new tubing park features a 10-lane tube run in excess of 800 feet long with a vertical drop of 90 feet.  A new boardwalk conveyor carries people to the top of the hill and at the bottom of the run is tube park lodge where riders can get a hot chocolate and warm themselves by the wood-burning fireplace, or go back outside to the patio and hang out at the fire pit.

Also new in the ski area is a new beginners slope and ski school and includes a boardwalk conveyor and a new snow-making system. The original ski lodge buildings received a much-needed face lift, including new wall and floor finishes, new furnishings, new lighting, and upgrades to the heating and ventilation systems.  Outside, a new plaza with a fire pit provides more options for outdoor seating. Important infrastructure improvements include upgrades and major maintenance to the existing ski lifts; snow-making waterline repairs and upgrades; new snow guns; and major storm drainage improvements.  A new waterline from the Canaan Valley golf course ponds provides expanded snow-making capabilities.
