Copied the following from their website

We're ending the season with a very exciting announcement here at Snowshoe Mountain. Next season we will have two new ski trails that will be accessed by the Soaring Eagle Express. The two new trails will likely consist of intermediate and expert level terrain and will increase the total number of trails at the region's largest resort to 59.

That should make that area of the mountain a pretty nice place to do some laps. Here's the new trail map. That blue should make for a nice, uninterupted cruiser unlike anything else they have on the mountain.

[edited to take out useless graphic!]

This is from the snow news:

"We're ending the season with a very exciting announcement here at Snowshoe Mountain. Next season we will have two new ski trails that will be accessed by the Soaring Eagle Express. The two new trails will likely consist of intermediate and expert level terrain and will increase the total number of trails at the region's largest resort to 59.

Snowshoe Mountain Resort and one of its premier residential development companies, Sawmill Village, announced today that they will join forces to construct two new ski trails at the Pocahontas County resort in West Virginia. The deal includes an investment of roughly $1 million for construction of the two trails, which will be adjacent to the Sawmill Village development in Snowshoe's South Mountain area.

Trail construction has already begun and will continue throughout the spring and summer to ensure opening with the 2007-2008 ski season. The last time Snowshoe expanded the terrain was back in 2004 with the widening of a few trails including Spruce Glades and Whistlepunk."

Looks like a major widening of the base area of Widowmaker.

Murphy, that link still shows an old map. All I can see is the small thumbnail on their main page:





Take a look to the left of Widowmaker. There are two new trails.

Would those two new trails be facing due south?

Yep, due North as Dave noted. I spent my lunch break flying around in Google Earth. These trails ought to hold snow well.

Topozone addict, right here. Amazed how on google earth, the snowshoe horseshoe sticks up like nothing else, and is perfectly opened to devour the lake effect moisture.
