Anyone know of 1 night accomodations at Snowshoe?
I may have to stay over 1 night at Snowshoe March 1 and 2 for my AASI level 1 snowboarding exam. I need something cheep, just a place to crash really. Anyone know of anything I should consider, I am not familiar with the area...never been there.
Since March 1 is midweek you probably could get a room at the Inn at Snowshoe at the bottom of the mountain. Available through the Snowshoe web site.
Yes the Inn most likely will be the cheapest you will find. About $110/night.
Call Snowshoe reservations center. They gave me a PSIA/AASI discount last year for an L2 exam at the Inn for $59 a night. You have to call and ask for it. It's at the base and you have to drive 6 miles to the village each day, but it's cheap.
I stay at the Red Carpet Inn in Bartow WV on occasion. It's about 40 minutes from Snowshoe. Only $55 a night when I was there last year. I prefer to stay on-mountain when possible, but in some situations it makes sense to stay in Bartow. For instance, if I ski Wintergreen one day, drive to Bartow that night, and ski Snowshoe the next day. Bartow is at the intersection of routes 28/92 and 250, right on my usual route to Snowshoe.
In the past I have stayed at the Inn at SS, but in recent years their rates were not good for one person and a one night stay. I would have had to pay for double occupancy with lift tickets. That led me to discover the Red Carpet Inn for those one-person/one-night situations.
Cass Railroad State Park...like 20-5ish minutes away from Snowshoe has historical cottages available for pretty cheap. I've stayed there when I was skiing at snowshoe with vouchers to avoid paying a premium for lodging...I know you'll be alone, but the rates are pretty low. www.cassrailroad.com
Thanks much for the suggestions!
I'd try Elk River Touring Center. It's probably 10 minutes from the base of SS. They have all sorts of accomodations, including rooms with just a bed and a common hall bathroom. All the rooms were very reasonable in price. They also have a pub, resturant, XC skiing, and a snowboard shop. Elk River Touring Center
