West Virginia slopes offer free tickets as ski season ends

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Several West Virginia slopes are set to offer free lift tickets to skiers and snowboarders as the season comes to a close, according to the state Ski Areas Association.

Lift tickets will be free for West Virginia residents on March 15 at Canaan Valley Resort in Tucker County and Winterplace resort in Raleigh County, the association said. Snowshoe Mountain in Pocahontas County will offer the same deal the following weekend on March 22.
