If you are interested in staying on the mountain in a ski in ski out place. We rent our top of the world units through Snowshoe. They are one bedroom and will comfortably sleep two. Weekday rentals are the cheapest way to go.
Our Website is www.snowshoemountain.net
We are running a weekday sprecial of 10% off Snowshoe prices on Ebay. That link ishttp://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...ssPageName=WDVW
Weekday Lift tickets with your harris teeter vic card are buy one get one free.
Other units that are real reasonable on the mountain are in Spruce lodge, no frills, but ski in ski out.
If you are willing to stay off the mountain the CASS units are a good deal.
As far as food, breakfast and lunch are reasonable, but depending on where you go dinner can get pricy. Dinner idea split a burger or chicken sandwich (with fries) and order a couple bowls of chili from the Junction. As far as drinks the best time to go out is happy hour from 4-7. Both the junction and foxfire run $2 domestics, well drinks and wine. Happy hour in Silver Creek is usually 7-9.
Coming from the South the cheapest place to get gas is in Martinsville in VA.
