What to Do Near ‘Heaven’ – Snowshoe, WV Lodging
A year round paradise awaits travelers, with its wealth of great outdoor activities within easy reach of your choice of Snowshoe condos.
During the winter months, the area is an obvious location for skiers of any ability. The 60 trails and 14 lifts to access the slopes provide a wide variety of skiing with plenty of options to suit beginners and advanced skiers alike. The four parks, Spruce Glades, Powder Monkey, Mountaineer and Timberjack, provide some of the best skiing in the region. The parks also offer a great adventure for snowboarders, and are well equipped for disabled skiers. There are over 11,000 acres of wilderness for snowmobiles with guided tours, including a spectacular evening tour of the Basin and an advanced ride through the backcountry.
If you have ever wondered what it takes to create the great conditions for winter sports, the resort offers a unique opportunity to jump aboard a Snowcat Tour and discover how the staff works to provide visitors with great grooming and learn more about the history of the mountain. The adventurous might like to swap the skis for snowshoes and take an outing into the backcountry and make your way up to Sunrise Backcountry Hut, the Fire Tower or the Airport Runway. The views of the distant Blue Ridge Mountains alone are worth the hike! Families at Snowshoe lodging will find a visit to the Coca-Cola Tubing Park with its six-story tubing hill a great outing for children.
