Welcome to DCSki schtool. Tell us a bit about yourself. Where you live, ski or board, age, etc.
Thanks, Colonel! I live in Central Florida, and recently purchased some land as a potential future homesite just off-mountain in Snowshoe, so have been looking at the fastest way to get there from here. I am a snowboarder, and my wife and I really liked the snow and wintery wonderland that our 5 years on the west coast afforded (in Tahoe and Colorado). I am 33 yo.
So I want to know the fastest way to get Snowsnoe from here is, within reasonable cost limits. Driving is 13 hours (and associated fuel costs). Flying, I can get direct to all DC area airports, and to Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh appears to be the closest in terms of drive time. Then there's the rental car cost, but I can manage that. I just want to know what my options are in case I have to babysit the construction of a home.
We considered west coast, but really want something we can drive to if necessary (esp. when stocking a house with goodies), and Snowshoe turned out to be really nice last weekend (and from asking around, it didn't appear that we just "got lucky" as far as conditions went).
