Despite its name, snowshoeing was not one of the activities offered at West Virginia’s Snowshoe Mountain Resort. Until now. This morning, the resort announced that it is starting a backcountry snowshoeing program, converting some trails from the mountain bike network for winter use. Snowshoe trails will start around the entrance to the Silver Creek ski area.

“It only seems logical that we offer the program with the trail system that is already in place and with our name,” said Steve Rice, President of Snowshoe. “It gives our guests a different way to enjoy the scenic beauty that the resort has to offer.” Rice adds that the abundant natural snowfall at Snowshoe will equate to an excellent base for snowshoeing.

A Snowshoe Center will offer guided tours, lessons, and rentals. Trail passes will sell for $10, and equipment can be rented for $20 per day. The Center will be staffed from Monday through Friday, noon to 5 p.m., and weekends from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
