“Snowshoe Weekend Jan 31 - Feb 2. 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

I can't put into words the amount of fun this trip was.

The ride from North Carolina to Snowshoe was breathtaking.

The ride up the Mountain to Silver Creek was challenging for southerns. It had just started snowing and the roads were not yet clear but we made it safe. The view was breathtaking.

We arrived about 1:15 pm and our room was ready. There were plenty of luggage carts as well as parking. The elevators were quick and plentiful.

The room exceeded any expectations. The room was immaculately clean, and warm. We stayed in 5603. The full kitchen was equipped with everything that we would have needed (but I had packed all supplies and utensils that I thought we would need).

We were unable to experience the snow tubing because of the snow on Wednesday but the activities we tried for the First time was AWESOME, A BLAST, FABULOUS.

You need all the layers that are recommended. The thermals, a light jogging suit, gloves, hat, facial coverage, and googles, A ski/winter coat not a jacket.

Snowmobiling provided the helmets - goggles are not needed. Oh my goodness, it was the best of the best. I do not like speed or roller coasters but I so enjoyed myself.

The food at The Junction was Excellent. Service was Fast, and Prices compared with a Applebees. Misty's Sports Bar inside Silver Creek was Good was well. The wings were hot and we were able to get our order to go.

The shuttles run every 15-20 minutes. Once you park you vehicle, there is not need to move it.

There is limited cell phone reception. We were able to connect to the internet via Ethernet cable.

Our unit in the lodge was great. I had read some reviews that weren't good so I was pleasantly suprised. The lobby area was run down and had an unbelievable greasy smell which was not pleasant. I don't ski and there weren't many places to sit while I was waiting for my kids to come off the slopes. My teenagers had a great time skiing and the lift lines weren't long even though it was a crowded weekend. We would definitely come back again. It was relatively easy to get a shuttle bus over to Snowshoe village for dinner, which is good since the dining opportunities at Silver Creek itself were not extensive.

Family and I just completed another great trip to Silver Creek. Crowdes were basically zero, the longest lift line we stood in was 3 people.

It was AWSOME that Mountineer run was not a terrain park this year so it was a great place to work with some of our group on improving their sking skills.

Lobby could use and update, BUT, in the last few years they have totaly replaced the windows, exterior siding, elevators and updated the pool area, so hopefull the lobby will be next.

Some people complain about Misty's but they need to realize it is a bar and not a restaurant, so yes dining options are limited unless you want to go up to the main village. And yes wi-fi and cell coverage is VERY limited but that is out side their controll so just plan on it and relax, maybe even turn off the electronic leash for a few days.

Room Tip: If you want a nice one Br. unit ask for 5310 we have used it for YEARS and it is always in great sha...

After reading so-so reviews of the rooms, my family was pleasantly surprised when we entered our room. The unit was wonderful and fully stocked with items we needed. It was very clean and had up to date furnishings and appliances. The lodge itself is dated and smelled like a greasy diner, but thankfully all we did was walk thru it from our room to the slopes. The staff was fantastic. They bent over backwards to attend our needs from the front desk to the rental shop to the instructors. Everyone was very nice and great dealing with people. The pool and sauna were a real treat at the end of the day. My family loved being able to park the car and not have to get back into it until we left. The tubing hill was a hit too!

If you are in the Southeastern US and want to take a family ski trip without dropping several grand...this is the place. Snowshoe is a massive resort with a ton of varying slopes and lifts. The Silver Creek area has one large condo on the hill and it makes keeping up with kids very easy. It also has an indoor/outdoor pool, hot tubs inside and out and an arcade. We have stayed in a couple of different units and both where different, but good.

Only major request would be ski lockers in the bottom floor!

We stayed here three nights just before Christmas. The entire family was in a great mood because we had just gotten incredibly joyous news. Even the dilapidated state of the unit we were in didn't dampen our mood. We got there late so had to drive to the top of the world to check in. Roads were clear and safe. The hotel public areas were deserted and creepy, dark and empty and not well maintained. the room was a two bedroom loft with an efficiency kitchen and a small living room with a fireplace. The unit was very small, dingy, and smelled like smoke even tho it was supposedly a non smoking unit. The furnishings were low quality and the bathroom was tiny and like a motel 6. There was a couple next door that apparently lived there temporarily---i think one of them was an employee or a construction worker or snowmaker or something --- they argued loudly all night and left their garbage in the hallway so that was sort of a downer and the shouting and name calling scared our kids. The kitchen has sufficient utensils, etc. the carpet was in dire need of replacing and the linens and towels smelled of cigarette smoke from the surly housekeepers. Housekeeping service was by a young man and an older woman team and was pretty much nonexistent, except the day of checkout when they arrived before nine am. In the mornings the restaurants were all closed until mid morning, which was very inconvenient. The last day I asked the front desk for a scrap sheet of paper and tho it took a while to locate one the young lady and boy at the desk were very friendly about it and did their best.

All in all it wasn't a good experience, put a damper on our good news, and if we ever go again it will be at a much nicer hotel.

After driving 8 hours we had issues getting into a room right away when it was after check in time. The place is huge and the trails are nice, but I've stayed in the village area and thats the place to stay. There is just more to do in the little village and your right there.
