About the Ski Resort

Ski Cherokee was a ski resort in Linden, Virginia that had a very limited lifespan: it opened at the start of the 90’s and closed two seasons later.

“You might have been one of the few to try Cherokee ski area west of Warrenton, Virginia during the few brief seasons it operated around a decade ago,” wrote DCSki Columnist Jim Kenney in 2000. “It became a victim of inadequate cash flow and a succession of warm greenhouse-effect winters. You can still see Cherokee’s trail cuts off to the left as you head west on I-66 near Linden, VA,” Jim writes.

Cherokee offered about 1,000 vertical feet, broken into a gentle upper hill and a lower hill with more advanced terrain. The area was served by a single chairlift, which did not reach the mountain’s summit. A lodge was located midway up the mountain.

The developers of Cherokee felt that the area’s high elevation and proximity to Washington, D.C. would be a recipe for success, but two warm winters in the early 90’s squashed that plan. Snowmaking may also have been limited due to an insufficient water supply.
