hey yall, a group of us from South Carolina will be headed to Snowshoe this weekend for the first time, and I heard some of the roads can be very mountainous. A lot of us get motion sickness fairly easy so I'm trying to find the best route to get to Snowshoe. I've seen a few different directions and was wondering if yall could help me choose the best one.

1.) I-77N to I-64E to 219N to Rt.66
2.) I-77N to I-64E to 60E to 92N to 39W to 219N to Rt.66
3.) I-77N to I-64E to 60E to 92N to Rt.66
4.) I-77N to I-81N to 220N to I-64W to 92N to 39W to 219N to Rt.66

Thanks

I've done this a few times along with other family members.

Take 77 to 64
Then at Lewisburg take 219 to 66.

I left SS yeterday heading to SC to visit family and the roads are pretty good right now.

If you want less mountain curves, try taking I-64 all the way to White Sulfur Springs, then take WV92 to the T-intersection with WV39, turn left onto 39/92, follow until you go through Marlinton and intersect with US219. Follow 219 the rest of the way.

WV92 is relatively straight and flat because it runs in the valley. In snowy conditions, I've heard that US219 is more likely to be cleared sooner.

Hey marzNC, if 92 is relatively flat, should I just take 92 all the way until it intersects with 66?

Assuming decent weather, it's a toss up. Going through Marlington, there are curves on 219 on the way to 66. But 66 east of Snowshoe is very windy, steep, small mountain road. I've driven it once going down in foggy weather. Would not like to drive it going up.

If there is snow, my understanding is that 219 is more likely to be plowed sooner.
