I haven't been there in years, but that high valley around Davis WV generally gets a lot of natural snowfall. 
Timberline's a good beginner place.  The beginner's trail Salamander is one of the longest trails around.  Salamander works for intermediates too with lots of little off-trail excursions available through trees or up the steep bank on the left.  Elevation of 4,286 at the top is pretty impressive too.  Spectacular views of Canaan Valley from Twister, when it's not snowing like crazy that is.

Two years ago it was -18F in the morning at breakfast time, -10F when we started skiing but warmed up to a toasty +18F by mid-afternoon.   :koolaid:
