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.

Best resort in the southeast, nothing really even comes close. Lift lines can get extremely long, especially on holiday weekends, but it is the only mountain in southeast where a powder day actually means powder day

Snowshoe has it all. The resort has the most runs I have seen at one resort. As a beginner/intermediate skiier I also appreciate that the have a wide variety of green slopes that offer more than you typical straight downhill. They have a huge amount of blues, blacks, and double blacks too though. The snow is always good here too but in short days they also pump the fake stuff when needed but it was never icey just good clean powder. Compared to Tahoe I would take Snoeshoe every time. Resort lodging was excellent witg a variety of affordable options and a wide range of restaraunts was also welcome after long days of skiing.

Snowshoe is where I first skied and where I learned how to ski well. It's a beautiful resort with lots of fantastic terrain. Thanks to the high elevation and proximity to lake effect snow it gets the most powder in the mid-Atlantic. Winter can't come soon enough. Get out and enjoy it!

Great place for the family not always a lot of snow and can be extremely crowded on holidays. Plenty of great places to eat and Starbucks has an outside fireplace so you can sit and enjoy your coffee

This is easily the best place to ski on the lower east coast. My first few days were warm and slushy, but by the last day heavy snowfall moved in and it was incredible.

Snowshoe resort provides without a doubt the best skiing south of Pennsylvania on the East coast. Its high elevation gives it snow that other resorts normally wouldn't get. Odd but fun that the resort is at the summit and not the base of the mountain. Best bet for anyone looking to go from Virginia or North Carolina.

Snowshoe is the best ski resort in the mid Atlantic. It gets good snow Jan - early March. It is not crowded Monday thru Friday most weeks. The staff is very friendly.

For the mid-Atlantic Snowshoe is the king, best terrain, best snowmaking, best snowfall... even better if you can manage to go midweek and non-holliday ... plus if you get the ridiculous pass in the spring it is a great bargain!
