Get the training lessons at The Village at Snowshoe and then go off to practice at Silver Creek! Silver Creek is less crowded and has more space for learning. Friendly staff, great trainers and excellent atmosphere! Cheat pizza is a must at the Village!

“Never Disappoints.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

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).

“It is the south after all”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

It's southern skiing at its best. Luckily for them, there isn't much competition. Lift lines are poorly managed and unnecessarily long, lifts are slow, so many people are skiing scared it isn't funny. Western territory and Silver Ck help you avoid the 30+ minute waits. On a crappy weather day, the place is great. I say go Mon - Thurs or don't go at all. Even then you may miss a lift while they fumble to scan your lift ticket.

“The mountain in the sky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

I've been enjoying ski and summer vacations at Snowshoe Mountain Resort for nearly 30 years and would encourage everyone in the Southeastern U.S. to check it out. A huge mountain with ski runs for every level of expertise is the main attraction but summers up here at 4848 feet of altitude are exceptional. When it's hot and humid during the summer, this mountain getaway is usually a cool, dry 75 degrees with many opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, fly fishing, swimming, and just enjoying being outside for a cook out. I highly recommend Ridgewood Condos for its more private, quiet location.

“great for the region”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

If you live 5 or less hours from this resort it is worth it. The conditions were superior to other close in ski areas I have been to in MD or PA.
