  • This is a place to go if you TRULY love to ski. We hated the road and the hotels are 2 star at best. They do advertise activities in the spring, summer and fall - horrible place to be.  more »

  • Spent last weekend up at Snowshoe for Collegiate Mountain Bike Nationals. After initially running into a few logistical problems, I went and talked with Jack up at the front desk, explained what was going on and he helped me out beyond my expectations. Everyone was very nice and accommodating. We stayed at Expedition Station which had great views, Clean rooms, and convenient location. Thanks for making the weekend great!
  • My husband and I recently had our wedding there and it was everything I dreamt it would be ! Every detail was in order, the staff was fun, yet professional, and our wedding coordinator (Jaime Eliers) was awesome. Every guest expressed how surprised they were at how delicious the food was and every single person had a great time. Everyone on the mountain made me feel special for my day. I can't thank everyone at Snowshoe enough. My weekend was nothing short of magical !
  • Best ski resort in the southeast! I've visited several times! Great slopes, awesome little town on top of the mountain and fun things to do throughout the day!
  • I grew up skiing in the Colorado mountains and then moved to California and it was definitely a step down... but then I moved to Virginia. Virginia was by far the worst place I had ever snowboarded/skied. My Mother was flying out for a visit and she wanted to go skiing. I researched places close by and settled on Snowshoe Mountain. Their prices for everything (lift tickets, rentals and lodging) were extremely reasonable. They had 3 times as many runs and lifts as Wintergreen (which was where I first tried out here). But I was still skeptical. We arrived at 8:30am to get in a full day of skiing/boarding. The rental place happened to be open earlier than expected, so we got our rentals in place. The staff was very friendly. The only downside was they didn't do any adjustments to the ski boots nor my bindings; but they needed them (we ended up going to another rental shop to fix them later). After gathering our rentals we checked-in, as you're allowed to check-in as early as 9am but there's not a guarantee your room will be ready. The room wasn't ready at the time but we were informed to try calling after lunch. The ladies who helped us were also very friendly and informative. We drove down to Silver Creek to ski/board there first, as it was it's last day of the season and was going to close. It was fairly nice ... small, not too many runs, kind of reminded me of Wintergreen [as a whole]. Their parks were fun. I loved that it wasn't too crowded. We came in after a few hours to call and check on the status of the room. It was ready! We drove to one of the check-in sites and got our room/locker key. I have nothing good nor bad to say about the lady who helped us this time. We got to the building and were immediately excited. We stayed in The Expedition. It was a ski-in/ski-out and in the most perfect spot. There was a rental shop attached to the building which made it convenient when we returned our equipment. We got to the room and were blown away. It wasn't high class but it definitely exceeded our expectations. The room was huge, the bathroom was big, there was a kitchenette, and the bed and pull-out couch were comfy. We had a view of the village center which we thought was cool. Our lockers were right down the hall which was convenient. The runs and lifts were so much fun! There were so many more options than Wintergreen and I was delighted. It wasn't crowded which we loved. Western Territory wasn't open while we were there because of the weather. The conditions were great but not perfect ... the snow however was close to being perfect other than spots of ice on a couple runs. The parks were a lot of fun as well. The people were nice, the mountain was great, it's not far from Hampton, VA which was perfect. Overall, I had a wonderful experience and I'm actually excited for next season out here. I definitely recommend this place to anyone of any experience level. NOTE: The black diamonds are not equivalent to the ones in Colorado nor even California. But still a lot of fun.
  • Great place for a winter ski/snowboard vacation. Awesome town on top of the Mt. Foxfire and Old Spruce are great places for a good brew and a food. Hidden secret is silver Creek. Head over just after noon for a little less mountain congestion. Stayed at Black Bear through first tracts real estate. Best properties on the Mt.
