The Cannonsburg Ski and Ride Area has opened just under 4 miles of groomed loops for XC skiing, fat bike, and snow shoe use. The Winter Trails will be 4 feet wide with a max width of 7 feet in the downhills and passing areas.

The trails make use of man-made snow at the bottom of the downhill area plus trails in the woods.
