Overall

4.6

Most terrain and vertical in the Mid-Atlantic with a significant infrastructure if you're looking for a big resort experience. Several high-speed lifts keep lines to a minimum but shuttle a ton of people up the mountain, so slopes can get pretty crowded. The terrain isn't too difficult and your pass will get clipped for skiing off-piste. That said, there's something for everyone and you can't beat the array of après ski and nightlife options.

Our son was employed to work at Snowshoe. Our visit was for that purpose. If we lived closer, we would visit more often.

It's the biggest mountain in the Mid-Atlantic, and one of the five biggest on the East Coast.

I learned to ski at Snowshoe about 16 years ago and still love skiing there - my children, the youth group from our church and I have spent our skiing time at Snowshoe many years. We always have good conditions, the slopes are not too crowded and there is a variety of difficulty to suit just about everyone!!!
Superb!

Snowshoe is the most awesome & cost effective ski trip from SC. It has ample terrain & slopes for everyone. Much easier to get my equipment on a car & ride 8 hours than to fly & rent!!!
Superb!

For my family Snowshoe is part of our extended heritage. My wife and I grew up in Parsons, WV in the beautiful Mononghela National forest which is adjacent to Elkins and the Snowshoe area. We think it is wonderful that the land has been developed because of its natural beauty and we are grateful for the jobs it has brought to the area. My wife and... More
