What sets Snowshoe apart from the rest and makes it the #1 mountain resort in the Southeast and mid-Atlantic is the mountain. Located nearly a mile high in the Allegheny Mountains of West Virginia, Snowshoes elevation means that the snow piles up early and stays late. With nearly 200 of snow annually, you can be assured of great conditions at just about any time of the season.

The mountain also offers a variety of terrains. With three distinct areas, skiers and snowboarders of all ability levels can enjoy 234 acres of spread over three faces.,57 slopes and trails, the longest continuous vertical drop of any resort in the southeast and mid-Atlantic (the Western Territory at 1.500), Two terrain parks with a huge half pipe and the most rail features in the region., and one ticket accesses it all. Theres something for everyone here. Almost half the trails are green runs - comfortable for beginners and fun for cruising even if youre a more advanced skier. Theres plenty of steep as well. 36% of Snowshoes terrain falls under the More Difficult header, and 23% is fast and steep enough for the most die-hard adrenaline junkies.

If you’ve never skied before, if you’d like to improve your skills, or if you’d like to try snowboarding for the first time, Snowshoe has a class that will fit your needs.

We will travel by bus to Snowshoe Mountain Resort on Friday. We’ll be staying at Stemwinder, a ski in/ski out condo near the village on the north mountain. We will have access to the indoor / outdoor heated pool and hottub in the resort. The Village at Snowshoe has restaurants and shopping for when you need a break. If you’d like to try something different, snowmobiling and cross country skiing are both available for an additional cost. Saturday morning, we’ll have a continental breakfast before hitting the slopes. You will be able to ski at any time the lifts are open day or evening. We will go out on the mountain for dinner. Sunday morning we’ll get up and do it all over again. Monday morning we will leave early for the drive back.
