  Snowshoe has the biggest elevation drop of any skiresort in the region which in my oppinion makes it a realtively great ski resort. You can get more skiing done before you have to get on the lift again. Which I think is very important in a ski resort. Says Tom.

All 14 good ski lifts at this ski resort make for a peaceful ride up the mountain. Snowshoe has the largest drop from top to bottom for 448 miles. This is a great ski resort featuring lots of vertical
    feet when you compare it to other ski mountains in the region. The yearly snowfall is roughly average at Snowshoe. This ski hill has an elevation difference of 1,500 feet; Snowshoe makes great use of it all. On this mountain you'll
