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.

The snow conditions during late March are too icy and slushy. That's why we did not go there this year, but went further north to Killington VT.
Superb!

Conditions and slopes are great for our snowboarding ability. We can drive to the resort from Florida. Package deals are a lot cheaper than in the Rockies.

For someone who lives in Ohio Snowshoe is a great ski destination. Wonderful ski conditons and great service only add to the setting. Mid-week deals are inexpensive and by far the best way to ski at Snowshoe.
