If you're looking for a big resort experience in the Southeast, Snowshoe is the perfect resort. It has the most terrain and vertical in the Mid-Atlantic along with a village filled with a range of lodges and a whole bunch of great après ski and nightlife choices. There are a few high-speed lifts around but on a holiday weekend, lift queues can get quite long. The terrain is mostly suited for advanced skiers and below and it's also important to note that off-piste skiing is not allowed.

Snowshoe has some awesome skiing and their downhill mountain biking is killer. Hard to access, and 70 miles from the nearest Walmart, not my preferred resort to visit, but still a fun place to ski. Corporate practices depreciate the quality of experience at this resort.... More

Terrible experience. We stayed in a place that was literally falling apart. The door to the patio wouldn't close. Snow was coming into our room. Tried to get maintenance to come fix it, but the guy never showed. Eventually we fixed it ourselves because we were cold. Staff was rude and unhelpful. We ended up leaving a day early it was so bad.... More

Snowshoe Mountain is great for short stays. It is a very affordable resort, and has some of the best skiing withing a resonable driving distance of the D.C. area. It tends to be much less crowded than other ski resorts closer to D.C. and also has a better layout overall. Furthermore, the location of the town on top of the mountain means no waiting... More

Snowshoe is excellent for an east coast resort. The pass is probably the best deal on the east coast. The small town area has great food and shops. Wonderful get away spot. Not the west coast but great riding.... More
