Snowshoe, West Virginia Is A Southeast 'Secret'

snowshoe mountain west virginia
In late October, Snowshoe, West Virginia got a lot of snow. When 28 inches fell in 48 hours, this popular regional ski resort was headlining The Weather Channel.
“We’re not located in what people generally think of as Ski Country,” explained Dave Dekama, Snowshoe Marketing Director. “We’re off the beaten path, so owning the snow story for that period of time was good for us.”

Two Mountains In One

Although Snowshoe Mountain may not be well-known nationally, this family-oriented resort attracts a loyal clientele from Maryland to Florida. With 1,500 vertical feet, 250 acres of terrain and 100% snowmaking, Snowshoe is a solid intermediate mountain, perfect for adventurous families who are learning to ski or ride and are progressing in their skills. The resort has 15 lifts and 60 trails as well as four terrain parks with a full arsenal of features.

“On a smaller scale, Snowshoe reminds me of Colorado or Germany,” shares Robin Adams, a ski mom of 10 from North Carolina who has lived in both Colorado and Germany. “Although the mountains are smaller than the Rockies or the Alps, you are up high and you can see mountain after mountain. On days when everything is covered in snow and the sky is a deep royal blue, there is nothing prettier.”
