The Backstory of Snowshoe Mountain

Snowshoe Mountain first opened to the public on December 19, 1974. The opening attracted some 26,000 skiers with Cupp Run Slope giving Snowshoe a vertical drop of over 1500 feet. The land on which Snowshoe now stands had previously been home to loggers and railroaders.

In those days, the only buildings were the Shaver’s Center, the old pump house, a water treatment plant, and dorms for employees. There weren’t even accommodations available where guests could stay and the closest lodgings were over 40 minutes away in Marlinton!

The Backstory of Snowshoe Mountain

Today the village has just about everything you could possibly want for a comfortable and fun-filled stay at any time of the year.

Covering a total area of 11,000 acres in the Appalachian Mountain Range, Snowshoe Mountain is the second highest point in the state at 4,848’ elevation. It was named as one of the top 20 ski resorts in the east by Ski Magazine in 2016.

Snowshoe Mountain provides terrific outdoor winter recreation, gourmet dining, shopping, wedding and convention areas.

Winter Weather is Here!

For the first time this season, Snowshoe Mountain is enjoying a fresh, new blanket of natural snow. This came about as colder temperatures approached the mountain late last evening. To make things better, precipitation is expected to continue throughout the day! The slopes are now able to receive natural and artificial snow, making the skiing that much more entertaining.

Temperatures are expected to stay in the 30’s-40’s range throughout the week, allowing the winter activities to be available once again.

Winter Finally On the Way

After a rough start to the ski season for Snowshoe Mountain Resort, it looks like winter is finally on the way. The temperatures are taking a downward trend and the snow guns are getting fired up to get the ski slopes covered. In the meantime, Snowshoe is offering a variety of fun outdoor activities to guests who wish to come on out and enjoy the beautiful mountain for this unusually warm season.
