Overall
4.6

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.

this is my choice mountian because I've worked here 4 seasoons.2 in snowboard school, 2 in terrian park.The staff in ski school is the best...everyone from supervisors to rookies. Their training is top notch and standards are high but there is no egos. Ski/ride school is the best

It is a great location. Even though the temps were zero and below, the area was stunningly beautiful.

We had car problems when we were set to leave and were stranded at the top of the mountain w/ luggage and no where to go. we talked w/ the supervisor of the shuttle service near our parking lot. He said he could help. He was able to get us a room at the bottom of the mountain at almost 1/2 price.discount price on ski rental at the ski barn. and... More
