West Virginia’s Snowshoe Mountain Resort has a number of improvements in store for skiers and boarders this winter. 10 acres of ski terrain have been added at the main Snowshoe area by widening and extending existing trails. Gandy Dancer and Spruce Glades have been widened in sections, and there is a new extended entrance to Grabhammer. The Powderidge trail has been extended, and now dips down underneath the Powdermonkey lift line.
Snowshoe also plans to make improvement to its terrain parks. Over 30 new rails will be added to the Spruce Glades and Mountaineer terrain parks, bringing Snowshoe’s total to just under 50 rails. The resort also plans to enhance the Premier SnowSkate Park.
Visitors will be able to ski or board all day, from 8:30 a.m. until 10:00 p.m., using Snowshoe’s new “Freedom Lift Ticket.” Night skiing is available at the Silver Creek area of Snowshoe.
Two shops have been added to the upscale Allegheny Springs complex: the Village Bistro restaurant and the Mountain Adventure Center retail store. The Village Bistro will be operated by a restaurant group based out of Charlotte, North Carolina. The Mountain Adventure Center store will feature the latest winter gear and offer high-performance ski and snowboard demos.
Snowshoe has also renovated the Top of the World complex. The mountaintop complex will include a new check-in facility, an expanded rental operation, and guest services for day visitors. Parking has also been improved at Top of the World.
