                                                                              Almost Heaven Mid-Winter Celebration Scheduled at Timberline

Timberline Four Seasons Resort will host its annual mid-winter event, “Almost Heaven Weekend”, February 19-21, 2010.

The ski resort will be in full operation with all trails open from its 1,000 foot vertical. Four lifts will be operational all weekend.

One of the lifts, a surface lift which is dedicated to serve snowboarders, has become increasingly utilized. The lift allows ascent within the specified snowboarding area, minimizing the lift time which would otherwise be necessary to traverse the full length of Herz Mountain. During the weekend boarders will participate in Rail Jam III, which will take place at the resort on Saturday, February 20th.

Snow conditions at the resort have been superb, according to many of the skiers, in part due to the amount and quality of the recent natural snowfall, which has complemented the resort’s extensive snowmaking capabilities.

As part of the Almost Heaven celebration, a re-appearance of the regionally popular Saddle Tramps is scheduled in the resort’s Timber’s Pub at 4pm and 8pm both Friday and Saturday. The group is the musical arm of the Western Heritage Club which has members in West Virginia and Pennsylvania. The club is dedicated to recognition and preservation of the frontier era and the Amercian pjioneer’s lifestyle. The Saddle Tramps are known for their interactive entertainment and renditions of old Western music combined with uptempo, spirited music. During their performances square dancing and square dancing instruction will be directed by Saddle Tramp Joe of Monongahela, Pennsylvania. There will be no cover charge for teh performances.

Ths ski lodge will be serving food and beverages daily from 6am until 2am over the weekend. The Fireside Grill features seafood Friday and award winning barbeque ribs Saturday, with a full menu every day.
