Owner description: Start with an 11,000 acre playground serving up the best of the mountains, however you like it. Your days here are like having dessert first. Our Village is situated atop the mountain and gives you access to spa-ing, shopping and even dancing. It all feels better at 4,848 feet.

“Mountains of Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

We took a trip to Snowshoe with a group of friends. The skiing was fantastic. They have plenty of trails for all skill levels. We had 2 full days of skiing with both beginners and intermediate level skiers and we all had a great time. The lifts tend to get a little backed up, especially on the weekends, but that is only because everyone likes to ski there.

We rented a condo at the resort, which was a great way to experience the resort. Our only real complaint was that there simply isn't enough restaurants at the resort. The waits for lunch were 30+ minutes while the waits for dinner ranged from 1-2 hours. We would highly recommend preparing your own meals to save some time.

“Great Skiing with the Family!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

This is my second year at Snowshoe for a father son ski trip. Conditions were fantastic and although we had one really cold day the experience was really great! The staff are all super friendly and helpful and the choices for food and other activities makes it a well rounded resort. Can't wait to go back!

“Friendly, safe and great atmosphere! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

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 via mobile

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.
