Ski Areas > US Mid Atlantic > Snowshoe, West Virginia




  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.

This is a fuller-size than average ski hill featuring a more sky-scraping than average drop from top to bottom when compared to other mid Atlantic ski areas. There's 224 acres of skiable land, and
    it's all in good condition. The 14 different ski lifts here are in wonderful condition. On this mountain you'll find 57 different ski trails; there's a tremendous variety to suit everyone. No other ski area for 448 miles has a higher
altitude difference. The 1,500 feet of height difference is reasonably ok; Snowshoe makes great use of it all. Snowshoe has a good collection of trails and scores of different ski lifts. Snowshoe has a much lower than average percentage of hard ski trails and a much higher than average fraction of green and blue trails. The extraordinary 15 feet of seasonal snowfall is one of the reasons this is such a great ski area. This ski area has an average amount of snow each  
season. The snow covered summits of West Virginia are a splendid site for snowboarding or skiing. The wonderful landscape of the West Virginia peaks and the exceptionally delightful ski trails are cause enough to come here to ski. Skiing and snowboarding here in West Virginia is scores of fun the whole winter. Snowshoe is a tremendous ski hill with scores of different slopes; there's no way to get bored here. A great workout and spending some quality time in the outdoors outshines anything. Hotels are offered near the base zone, but if you donít have reservations, you may perhaps end up sleeping in your automobile. Snowshoe is a family friendly ski hill with lots of blue and green slopes for learners. Some folks prefer skiing and some snowboarding, either way, there are lots of great spots for that close by.
