Weather for Beckley West Virginia Forecast

Raleigh County, considered the Hub of Southern West Virginia, is home to Beckley, The City with a “Mine of Its Own”. The Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine is where you can find yourself underground in a cool 58 degree mine shaft while your tour guide, a retired coal miner, tells you about the days of coal. Newly expanded facilities at the Exhibition Coal Mine include a reproduction of a coal tipple that houses a coal mining museum, visitor’s center, country store and much more.

Raleigh County is also home to several great Parks including Little Beaver State Park where you can fish, swim and paddleboat & Lake Stephens where you can camp, fish, boat, bike and hike! Grandview Park, a unit of the New River Gorge National River, hosts a dramatic overlook of the New River Gorge and is complimented by the seasonal outdoor drama presentations by Theatre West Virginia.

While many vacationers think that Southern West Virginia is only a fair-weather travel destination, we are blessed with all four seasons, including SNOW. Raleigh County is Home of Winterplace Ski Resort, boasting 27 trails and 9 lifts; the Resort is located just off I-77 in Flat Top. Winterplace is the home of West Virginia’s largest snowtubing park.

There is so much more to see and do – Come and learn the History, experience the Outdoor Recreation & Fairs & Festivals and shop ‘til you drop in our antique stores, malls and specialty shops.
