#1 of 6 in Winter Sports in West Virginia
Much more than just another run-of-the-mill ski resort, Snowshoe Mountain Resort serves as a year-round tourist destination featuring an extensive network of biking trails and championship golf courses. The resort's skiable area covers 98 hectares (244 acres) of the vast Appalachian Mountain Range, attracting nearly half a million skiers and snowboarders from around the country. The area boasts about 60 slopes, two of which have a 450 m (1,500 ft) vertical drop--the highest in this part of the country. In warmer months the resort offers wilderness Segway tours, guided horseback rides, adventure camps for kids, and scenic chairlift rides. Check online for lodging deals and package specials; make your reservations well in advance. Snowshoe Mountain Resort is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Snowshoe Edition.

  • Fun little place,awesome village with a book store and coffee shop and shopping for the snowbunnies. Nice fireplaces to sit and read by,sleigh rides,snowmobiles,skiing..fun fun fun  more »
  • Very boring, nothing to do unless you want to ride a mountain bike around the resort grounds and run down the visitors. Most stores are closed during the summer. Not worth the car ride through 60 mile...  more »
  • Never get a room reservation at Snowshoe Mtn thru Snowshoe directly. They can change your reservation to any other room they like. So if you pay for a view of the mountain they can change it to a view...  more »

  • This was my first ever experience seeing snow and skiing and I would not have wanted it to be any where else! The lodging area has many options to sleep, shop and eat! Thanks to one ski instructor (David P.) I was able to conquer a blue slope! Without him I would be stuck in the learning area with the children. It was so much fun! The mountains were breath taking and the staff was so friendly no matter what!
  • I go once a year for the past few years on a guys trip. Always has snow! Even at 50 degrees. A bit crowded over holiday weekends and pricey but it's a once a year thing so it's okay. The waffle cabin comes in clutch and the lift attendants are always Friendly. Western territory is great is you can ski/snowboard and want to avoid crowds.
  • I like this place. It's worth travelling a few hours to get here, and the drive through West Virginia is tranquil and scenic. The resort has a modern feel to it. Some good, enjoyable skiing for all skill levels. A nice place to spend a couple of days.
  • The skiing/snowboarding is a solid 5 stars, but Snowshoe is very pricey. My wife and I stayed in February. We checked in on a Tuesday, checked out that Thursday and bought lift tickets in advance for Wednesday only and spent over $400. In addition to this, the cost of food adds up very quick. Said and done, we spent at least $600 for a three day getaway while only being on the slopes one day. This was my third time at Snowshoe. It's a great place, I just wish they'd lower their rates a little and we would come a lot more often. To save money, you can stay at the Inn at Snowshoe that's at the base of the mountain (10 minute drive) and bring food to eat. There are no cheap food options on the mountain. The food available is good, but expect to pay for it.
  • Amazing skiing, tons of trails and ski lifts, multiple mountains. Still lots of stuff to do during the off-season as well. Best winter and year round resort on the East Coast.
