This is my third year at Snowshoe, a trip that we plan for the latter part of January. The conditions this year (2014) were the best yet...powdery, soft snow, and plenty of sunshine. I skiied on a Friday so the crowds weren't bad at all. The village is a lot of fun too, everything you need is right there, from burger shacks to finer dining. I highly recommend Foxfire Grille. The Junction is alright for a meal, but every time I visit the service takes a long, long time. In their defense, it's jam packed in there.
We stay on South Westridge, so a shuttle bus picks us up and takes us wherever we need to go around the resort. It's free, but tipping is always an option. Not driving anymore once we arrive is a key factor due to the ice, snow, and bud light.
Visit www.Liftopia.com to get a discount lift ticket a few days prior to arrival, it adds up.
After skiing Snowshoe a few times, the slopes I grew up on in NC seem like ant hills!
Also, if you're a great skiier, visit the "Western Territory". It takes a few different lifts and a short walk, but it's world class black diamond skiing (with a bar/grill at the bottom).
