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.

  • This is a very clean, well laid out resort. Everything you need is at the top of the mountain. Great restaurants, a Draft House, Coffee Bar, Overnight Accommodations and the usual shopping. During the...  more »
  • Snowshoe , in southern west virginia... The first time I came here I thought "how good can the skiing be, this far south?" Wow, was I amazed! Cupp Run is the big attraction here and for good reason......  more »
  • We made the drive up the mountain to see the resort. Unfortunately it was closed, but we still were able to take in some spectacular views. The amount of places to stay on top of the mountain are amaz...  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.
  • best ski mountain in the south east. however, it gets really crowded. the central lift to the top in the basin had a crazy long line mid day. booking ahead can be a gamble as there may not be much snow cover. we went in January and got lucky. come here but don't compare it to big mountain skiing. you will have fun. cup run was my favorite! if you can, try to stay at one of the places where you can walk to the slopes instead of driving. bring your own food as well. snowshoe charges too much for food.
