We are about to go on a return trip to Snowshoe in Feb. 2009 after the great time we had last season. We all love skiing/snowboarding and Snowshoe is our best option within driving distance.
I will give you what I have found to be the best (cheapest) way to plan a trip to Snowshoe:
I checked with the resort for lodging options for our group of 10. The choices are limited and they will do a package deal with lift tickets for less than buying separately, but there are better options. We booked through http://snowshoerentals.com in one of their Logger's Run townhomes. It is a five bedroom/ two bath unit that was ski in/ski out. The great thing was that the unit was not booked the night before, so we were able to check-in at the office located at the base of the mountain the first morning at 9am! They offered much better rates than going through the mountain.
A couple of options are available here. Adult tickets at the mountain are $75/day. The tickets they sell are good for any day of the season, so they can be bought in advance. One option this year is getting tickets through Costco. The sell them in quanities of 2 for $112/pair. We did this for the upcoming trip and got enough for everyone on the same order to save on shipping. They do charge a small fee if you are not a Costco member. The other option is eBay. Many times people end up with more tickets than they use and will sell extras on eBay. Just make sure that you are buying from credible sellers!
We have found the combination of this method does save you money on the trip. I highly recommend Logger's Run for groups of 8-10 people. I think most of them are 4-5 bedroom units and each have a hot tub on the deck and a 1 car garage on the bottom floor.
