How long would it take door to door during non peak traffic from Arlington or Fairfax to Massanutten?

Depending on how you drive and what route you take, it's usually just under 2 hours.

I think that both routes are roughly the same time, you can do either:
  • 66west-81south-33east. Probably the simplest route, exit 81 at harrisonburg and drive about 10 minutes east.
  • take 29south-33west. Pick up 29 south in Gainesville, then hang a right at 33 west. Probably the more scenic route since you drive through the national forest and mountains.

That is a nice trade off. It takes us 4 hours best case, to get to places we go to out here.

To rub it in some more, Squaw will open up for 4th of July weekend.

They just had some new snow yesterday.

Normally they have their "ski through the pond" event sometime in May but this year there was too much snow for there to be a pond plus it was too cold. They will conduct this year's event on July 3rd!

No big deal. You can ski in Lynchburg on July 4 or even August 4 if you want.

There is something special about Canaan Valley area! It's more low key and laid back than Snowshoe.
It's just a beautiful area!
