Pro-Rider highlights demo days at Snowshoe

The Burton Snowboards 2000 Women’s Demo Tour made a stop at West Virginia’s Snowshoe Mountain Resort this weekend, offering demos of the latest snowboard equipment and bringing Pro-Rider Victoria Jealouse along to show off her skills. Snowshoe was one of just thirteen North American resorts chosen for the tour.

In addition to the Demo Days, visitors to Snowshoe helped inaugurate three additional trail openings, including two at the Snowshoe area and one at Silver Creek. Snowshoe’s open trail count now stands at 17, the largest of any resort south of New York. Snowmaking continues as temperatures permit; since November 3, snowmakers have converted 74 million gallons of water into over 11 feet of snow. 47 acres of terrain are now open.

What does the future hold? Snowshoe’s veteran snowmakers are beginning to eye Western Territory trails, including the 1,500-foot vertical Cupp Run. Once temperatures are low enough for 4-5 days of straight snowmaking, Snowshoe will concentrate efforts on opening Cupp Run. Snowshoe is expecting colder temperatures to return to the region starting next Wednesday.
